EUMC2019 will take place in Madrid on October 17-20
Dear European Ultimate CommunityJose Antonio de los Rios, from the Tournament organising Committee, says: "it's really a pleasure for us to be able to host a European Ultimate Championship! We can rely on the great infrastucture of our Partner, the Universidad Complutense Madrid, which is in the City center and well connected to the airport, to offer the Masters and GrandMasters Players a great ultimate experience with the typical Spanish atmosphere" .
The EUF Board is happy to announce that the EUMC2019 will take place in Madrid on October 17-20 2019.
The European championship title will be assigned in the divisions Men Masters (33 or older), Women Masters (Women 30 or older), Mixed Masters (Men 33+, Women 30+) and GrandMasters (40+). The championship takes place every 4 years. The previous edition was in Copenhagen 2015, as part of the European Ultimate Championship, where the Danish Men Masters and the Germany Women Masters Teams won the Competition in their divisions. In 2019 it will be the first time that the title is assigned in the divisions Mixed Masters and GrandMasters.
"It is great to have an own event, independent from the EUC, which assigns the title of European Ultimate Champion for the Masters divisions.", says Andrea "Oddi" Furlan, president of the EUF. "At the same time it was very difficult to fit an other event in the very crowded summer season. We are extremely pleased to have recieved a very strong bid from the Madrid Ultimate Club that allowed us to move the tournament into the fall but still assuring ideal playing temperatures."
In order to get a feeling of how many teams per division will attend, the EUF will start a pre-registration survey in the next days.
Grazie e ciao
