Sports Council recognition

UK Ultimate is delighted to confirm that the organisation has been awarded formal recognition as the UK National Governing Body (NGB) for Ultimate by the home country sports councils: Sport England, sportNI, sportScotland and Sport Wales.  Ultimate was officially recognised in the UK as a sporting activity in 2008.  However, in some parts of the UK, not having a formally recognised NGB can be barrier to entry for clubs or local organisations wishing to enter into discussions about access to facilities and/or funding.

Following a lengthy application process we received official confirmation of the recognition decision this week.  It is a notable milestone in the development of the sport in the UK, although it should be noted that recognition does not carry with it any guarantee of funding or additional support.  Please contact us if you have specific queries relating to this exciting news.
