GB teams withdrawing from European Youth Ultimate Championships 2021

In January, the World Flying Disc Federation,(WFDF), announced that their events in 2021 were all being cancelled.  The international calendar 2021 also includes the European Ultimate Federation (EUF) European Youth Ultimate Championships (EYUC):

  • U20s in Malmö in Sweden, 17-24 July;
  • U17s in Hollabrunn in Austria, 7-14 August.  

The EUF has said that they will publish their go/no-go decision regarding these events in early April. 

 

With great sadness, we have decided that we will not send Great Britain youth teams to either of the EYUC events in 2021 regardless of whether or not the events go ahead.  The UK Ultimate staff and volunteers involved recognise the complexity of the decision: it's impact on all of the players and the local organisers, and indeed the potential financial implications to some of the teams that were affected by the cancellation of WJUC 2020.  The decision was not made lightly.
