EUF supports EFDF in its EOC recognition process and for the participation of Ultimate in the European Games 2019

 Dear Member Federations

 

As discussed during the EUF general Assembly, EFDF will apply to have Ultimate at the European Games 2019.
Additionally WFDF confirmes its support with know-how and ressources for the EUC2015 in Copenhagen.

EUF isues following statement:

Ultimate is developing fast and WFDF and EFDF are making incredibly high efforts respectively at world and European level in getting recognition within the Olympic Committees.

 

EUF, as governing body for Ultimate within the EFDF, is directly affected by this process and is ready to actively shape the future of European Ultimate within the EOC family.

The EUC 2015 in Copenhagen will be a perfect show case event to convince the international sport community that Ultimate and Disc Sports are ready to be admitted into

the elite multi-sport events.

 

The EUF board is aware that adding more and more events will force a replanning of our calendar, probably also at world level, and that there is a certain risk that parties extern to Ultimate might try to change the game in order to make it better sellable.

 

For these reasons it is even more necessary that EUF, with its deep roots within the Spirit of the Game and Self-Refereeing and it visionary attitude, gets directly involve since from the beginning in this evolution process.

 

The EUF board officially offers its support in helping EFDF in its EOC recognition and in the application for having Ultimate at the European Games 2019.

 

For the EUF Board
