Eight teams will take part in the grand tournament initiated by the British Commonwealth Sambo Association and the British Sambo Federation. The organisers announced not only the number of teams and countries that will form these teams, but also the disciplines and weight categories in which the competition will be held.

According to Martin Clark, the President of the British Sambo Federation, the tournament will bring together teams consisting of five participants in men's sambo (62 kg, 68 kg, 74 kg, 82 kg, 90 kg), two participants in women's sambo (up to 64 kg and over 64 kg), two participants in combat sambo (up to 100 kg and over 100 kg). As for the eight teams, they are as follows:

We remind you that the format of the event is planned as free fights. This will be a team tournament in which teams will be divided into two groups. First group will comprise four teams of the British Commonwealth; the second one will consist of the stars of the Rest of the World. The final should be a decoration of the tournament in which the ace of aces will compete for the title of the strongest ones.

We remind you that for the first time the idea of holding the 2014 President's Sambo Cup in Great Britain was announced by Lord Simon Reading, the President of the Sambo Association of the British Commonwealth, at the meeting of Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, Honourary President of FIAS, with leaders of modern world sambo, which took place in Moscow last March. Then the idea of the British Cup was approved by the President of Russia, and currently it is put it into practice by the British Commonwealth Sambo Association and the British Sambo Federation led by Martin Clark.
