The Europa Cup circuit features both bobsleigh and skeleton events, although not always at the same time or the same venue. There are eight races for each sport, with Austria, Germany, Latvia and Switzerland hosting the events.

For skeleton, the Europa Cup circuit sits above the North American Cup in the list of circuits, whereas it shares equal importance with the North American Cup as far as the bobsleigh rankings are concerned.
