The Cup of China is one of the series of six senior-level, international figure skating competitions held as part of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating. The Cup of China joined the series in 2003, replacing the event in Germany.[citation needed] The competitors are selected by invitation only. Organized by the Chinese Skating Association, the Cup of China has been held in Beijing, Harbin, Nanjing, and Shanghai, usually in early November.[citation needed] Medals are awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

China declined to host any ISU-sanctioned figure skating event during the 2018–19 season in order to, among stated reasons, prepare its venues for the 2022 Winter Olympics.[1] Finland hosted a replacement 2018 Grand Prix of Helsinki event between November 2–4, 2018, in Helsinki.[2]
