EUCF Bid Allocation

The European Ultimate Federation made this announcement today, 1st August, regarding the regional bid allocation to EUCF 2017.  UKU and IFDA had previously understood from EUF that there would be 5 bids in the open division but it has become clear that the earlier communication was made in error.  We will necessarily review the competition format of the open division at UKU Nationals / EUCR-W in light of this announcement.

Did your team not qualify for Nationals?

Following the end of Regionals, we can imagine that some of you are disappointed that your team won't be playing at UKU Nationals on the weekend of 26-28th August. But there is still a chance that you could be there! 

 

UKU is looking for volunteers to help out over the bank holiday weekend (including, but not limited to, UKU members, friends, family and ultimate frisbee fans), to score some games, assist with marshalling the event and generally just giving us a helping hand. In return for your time and hard work we will provide you with food for the weekend, camping on-site, and some free swag! As well as that, we’re also in the process of organising some free sessions for over the weekend (Friday-Monday) which you can choose to attend as another thank you for your help.
