Registration for the 2022 season is now closed. We are accepting applications for the 2023 season (World Championship VIII). If your application was declined for the 2022 season, please try again for the 2023 season. Bot builders wishing to apply for the 2023 season should endeavor to submit their applications by March, 2023 (official deadline TBD). Please, only create new applications for new robots. If you are reapplying with a robot design you have already submitted, please update your exisitng application. Good luck! 

Also note that we’re asking applicants to design a robot, not build a robot. As building a robot is dangerous, time consuming and expensive, you should only start building if you are notified by BattleBots that your design submission has been accepted, and you have completed other entry procedures that will be required by our broadcast partners. If you decided to build before this, you do so at your own risk.

BattleBots Inc. and its affiliates reserve the right to reject any application for any reason and without explanation.

Good luck!
