The Cheerleading Worlds 2023 was one for the record books. It felt like a true return to normalcy, with teams competing from around the world in full force. More than 550 teams competed at this season’s event in 33 divisions. Ninety-nine globes were awarded, and many programs took home their first globe; a few won a World Champion title for the first time, others continued their winning streak, and some won for the first time in over a decade. You can find the full results from The Cheerleading Worlds 2023 here.

CheerTheory’s annual gym ranking includes all medalists from The Cheerleading Worlds 2004 to 2023, including the IASF Virtual World Championship 2021. To calculate CheerTheory’s annual weighted ranking, we award five points for first place, three for second place, and one for third place. Then, we reverse rank each program, beginning with the highest point ranking. See which teams and programs have won the most Cheerleading Worlds titles and globes in the table below.
