Competition notesEdit

The competition was open to skaters from ISU member nations who had reached the age of 15 by July 1, 2005. The corresponding competition for younger skaters was the 2006 World Junior Championships.

Based on the results of the 2005 World Championships, each country was allowed between one and three entries per discipline. National associations selected their entries based on their own criteria.

None of the gold medalists from the 2006 Olympics competed at the 2006 World Championships. Stéphane Lambiel, the only defending World champion, won his event.

The compulsory dance was the Ravensburger Waltz.

Due to the large number of participants, the ladies and men's qualifying groups were split into groups A and B. This was the last World Championships to have a qualifying round. Following the 2006 Worlds, the ISU Congress voted to remove it. Following these Worlds, all skaters would compete in the short program, with the top twenty-four then advancing to the free skating.
