Tournament rules Update 2021

Dear Ultimate Community, 

We applaud the efforts of WFDF and the rules committee. The recently introduced rule of gender pulling is a great way to include women athletes in one of the few parts of our sport where only one person is required to fulfill the task. 

 

Therefore the Board of the EUF decided to introduce this new rule to xEUCF 2021 as well. 

For all games, a player representing the gender with 4 players on the field must pull for that point.

This follows the previous decision to play all EUF Mixed events with the Ratio A rule.

A6.2. Ratio Rule A (“prescribed ratio” rule): 

A6.2.1. At the start of the game, after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens with the winner selecting the gender ratio for the first point. For the second and third points the ratio must be the reverse of the first point. For the fourth and fifth points the ratio must be the same as the first point. This pattern of alternating the ratio every two points repeats until the end of the game (half time has no impact on the pattern). 

 

We have contacted WFDF about this decision as well and are looking forward to collecting feedback after the tournament in order to make this rule a staple!

 

As previously announced EUF is continuing the partnership with Eurodisc. Therefore the default Game Disc for the upcoming tournaments will be Eurodisc, except when both captains agree to another manufacturer. 

 

grazie e ciao

Oddi
