For the 2024–2025 seasons, 15 Women’s World Tour licences will be distributed, according to a UCI announcement. Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling and AG Insurance-Soudal QuickStep ascend to the top division for the first time.

The UCI further stated that licences for the 18 men’s WorldTour teams that are currently in competition as well as 16 men’s ProTeams have been granted for the year 2024. Israel-Premier Tech, Lotto Dstny, and Uno-X are a few of these. The TDT-Unibet team, which Bas Tietema and his friends founded after a year at the Continental level, is the only new men’s ProTeam for 2024.

automatically qualified for every one-day race on the UCI WorldTour. In order to receive wild card invitations to the 2024 WorldTour races, the other ProTeams will have to compete.Ceratizit-WNT, which placed 11th overall in the UCI team ranking, outperformed the other two Continental squads that applied for the two available licences. AG Insurance came in at number thirteen. The previous year, the Basque team was ranked 25th.

Several teams, including the recently-dissolved EF Education-TIBCO-SVB, did not apply to continue at the top level, leaving two spots open for 2024. Next, a second opening was created when Liv-AlUla-Jayco was formed by the merger of Jayco AlUla and Liv-TeqFind.
