To qualify for the Cheerleading Worlds 2021, teams must win an at-large or full paid bid at one of the 42 qualifying events. The Cheerleading Worlds bid events take place across the United States from December 2020 to March 2021.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, USASF and IASF will offer bids at each of these events differently. Normally, each event offers a pre-determined number of bids. However, this season, each event will offer a number of bids dependent upon how many total teams are registered to compete.
