Following the registration procedure for UCI professional teams (UCI Women’s WorldTeams, UCI WorldTeams and UCI ProTeams), the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) today announces the names of the teams registered for the 2024 season.

The 2024 season marks the start of the second licensing cycle for UCI Women’s WorldTeams, following the cycle that began with the creation of this category in 2020 and ended in 2023. At the end of the 2023 season, the 15 available licences have been allocated for the 2024-2025 period.

N.B.: from 2026, the 15 UCI Women’s WorldTour licences will be allocated for a period of three years, in line with the duration of the UCI WorldTour licences.

As part of the allocation of UCI Women’s WorldTour licences for the 2024-2025 period, following a full review of the files received in light of all the applicable criteria (ethical, financial, administrative, organisational and sporting) and in accordance with the UCI Regulations (art. 2.13.035), the UCI Licence Commission has decided to award the 15 licences, subject to compliance with the provisions relating to annual registration during the period, to the following teams1:

  • AG INSURANCE – SOUDAL TEAM (AGS – BEL)
  • CANYON//SRAM RACING (CSR – GER)
  • CERATIZIT – WNT PRO CYCLING TEAM (WNT – GER)
  • FDJ – SUEZ (FST – FRA)
  • FENIX–DECEUNINCK (FED – BEL)
  • HUMAN POWERED HEALTH (HPH – USA)
  • LIDL –TREK (LTK – USA)
  • LIV –ALULA – JAYCO (LAJ – AUS)

  • TEAM SD WORX (SDW – NED)
  • TEAM VISMA | LEASE A BIKE (TVL – NED)
  • UAE TEAM ADQ (UAD – UAE)
  • UNO-X MOBILITY (UXM – NOR).

As the number of teams applying was greater than the number of licences available, the sporting criterion was applied, in accordance with article 2.13.035 §2 of the UCI Regulations. As such, the application of the following team could not be accepted:

  • LABORAL KUTXA – FUNDACION EUSKADI (LKF – ESP).

This team will therefore be registered as a UCI Women’s Continental Team in 2024, subject to the agreement of the National Federation concerned, in accordance with the provisions of article 2.13.057 of the UCI Regulations.
