First of all, the team is obliged to get clothing following WFC's dress code, at their own expense. They will also have to cover all costs of travel and accomodation during their stay in Sochi. An administrative fee of 2000 zł is to be paid to the Association and in case of not meeting those requirements the team should pay 1000 USD of penalty (which is supposed to cover cancellation fee that would be imposed on PCA).
