After the Finlandia Trophy in October, the ISU international competitions for synchronized skating will start in Riga (LAT) at the beginning of December with the Riga Amber Cup. Three other events have been announced by the ISU until the end of the year: Lumière Cup in Eindhoven (NED), Hevelius Cup in Gdansk (POL), and Santa Claus Cup in Brno (CZE) just before Christmas time.
