The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) is pleased to announce that the WFDF 2019 World Under-24 Ultimate Championships (WU24) will be hosted in the city of Heidelberg, Germany, from Saturday 13th July to Saturday 20th July, 2019. The event will feature national Ultimate teams in the Men’s U24, Women’s U24 and Mixed U24 divisions.
“WFDF is excited to partner with such an experienced tournament organizer and to have WU24 2019 back in Europe for the coming championship. We know that not all national teams were able to make the long trek down under and we encourage maximum participation in next year’s event,” stated WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “This is a great showcase for the upcoming talent in our global community and the event nicely complements our upcoming plans for working with FISU in introducing our University Games.”
The successful bid came from newly founded DISC-Respect Sports with the support of Heidelberg Sport and Health Office. The TOC team will be led by Mark Kendall and Martin Rasp who both have significant experience in hosting both national and international Ultimate events.
