Mixed Gender Ratio Rule B at EUF events 2019

13/04/2019

Dear Member Federations and European Ultimate Community

 

WFDF announced last year that the WFDF National Team Events from 2019 (EBUC and WU24 in 2019, WUGC and WJUC in 2020) will use the Mixed Gender Ratio A (prescribed ratio rule). Club Championships are so far explicitly excluded. 

In order to keep the mixed Ratio consistent over all EUF sanctioned events (Club and National Team) in the season 2019, the EUF board decided to keep the mixed gender ratio B - Endzone decides - for all events: EUC2019, EYUC2019, EMUC2019 and the whole EUCS2019.

A change to the Ratio A will happen once the WFDF Rule committee will include also the Club Championships.

EURODISC AS EUF OFFICIAL DISC SUPPLIER FOR 2019

31/03/2019

The EUF is pleased to announce Eurodisc as the official disc partner for the 2019 season.

 
After a very successful partnership in 2018, EUF has decided to continue the cooperation for the current year of 2019. The European Ultimate Federation also prolongs the usage of the Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic to all EUF sanctioned events.
 
The Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic will be the official disc for all EUF tournaments.
 
At all EUF sanctioned tournaments there will be a sufficient number of Eurodisc game discs at every field. They can be used freely in warmup before the games.
This does not mean that games MUST be played with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic. The game disc regulation this year still is the following:
  • If both teams don´t want to play with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic, they are allowed to play with any different disc.
  • If one team wants to play with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic and the other team want to use the disc used at WFDF sanctioned events, in adult events the other disc will be used.
  • If one team wants to play with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic and the other team wants to use the disc used at WFDF sanctioned events, in junior events the Eurodisc game disc will be used.
This agreement is in line with the decision made at the EUF General Assembly 2017 in Veenendaal, ratified by all EUF member federations.
 
EUF president Andrea Furlan says:
“EUF is very happy to continue the strategic partnership with Eurodisc started in 2016. Eurodisc demonstrated to be a reliable supplier of professional competition discs, with high quality, fast reaction time, competitive prices and no import taxes. All this facilitates the development of ultimate in Europe, one of the core goals of the European Ultimate Federation.”
 
New Games - Frisbeesport owner Thomas Napieralski says:
I would like to thank the EUF for trusting in Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic ultimate disc for championship ultimate play all over Europe. The brand Eurodisc intends to emphasize the special affiliation to the European nations. It’s made to give Europe the possibility to be independent from using a monopolistic disc from overseas. However, Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic is not just another ultimate disc on the ultimate market. Its unique characters support all players to exercise their favorite sport with an environmentally friendly sport product. Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic is made of 100% renewable resources, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions that are responsible for the greenhouse effect.

The EUF is pleased to announce Luckygrass as the official apparel and merchandise partner for the 2019 season.

Following a year where both EUF and Luckygrass had to get acquainted to each other, we now prolong the contract we had with Luckygrass in 2018. We are confident that both parties have learned from each other and that the cooperation for this year 2019 will be very successfull. The partnership with Luckygrass will reach its summits during the four big events that EUF will organize during the year, being EUC in Györ, EYUC in Wroclaw, EUMC in Madrid and EUCF in Caorle. Already during registration players will be able to order Luckygrass products related to the event, besides Luckygrass will be present with a booth during these tournaments.

EUF President Andrea Furlan says:

After a first year of successfull cooperation, it was a no-brainer for EUF to succeed our partnership with Luckygrass. Their presence at all big EUF sanctioned events will include a merchandizing offer for the participants. But we are quite certain that not only the European elite players will benefit from this mutual agreement, because through our partnership also regular clubs in whole Europe are able to get reduced rates for their outfits.

Luckygrass International Manager Dima Podolskiy says:

Luckygrass has been producing sports gear since 2011 and from the beginning the European market has been very important for us. That’s why we are very happy to continue as the merchandizing partner of the European Ultimate Federation and help ultimate development around Europe. Since almost all our office employees are ultimate players, we know how important it is to look good and feel comfortable on the field, but don’t spend a lot of money on this. That’s why we are happy to offer a 25% discount to all teams that will participate at European championships. We are also happy to support the young generation and provide a 25% discount for youth teams and players under 18 years old.

Call for Bids for Indoor Ultimate Championships: EIUCC2020 and EIUC2021

30/03/2019

This is the call for bids for two new championships, both being indoor events. EIUCC is European Indoor Ultimate Club Championships, EIUC is European Indoor Ultimate Championship (nations). The EUF had been thinking about setting up these tournaments for quite some while, but now that the Indoor Rules Committee has concluded its job, it's time to take the organization to the next level.

Both championships are supposed to be played in all three regular divisions. The board has decided that these two events might be organized by the same TOC, preferably at the same location, being EIUCC as a sort of trial tournament for the latter, the EIUC.

Be aware that the bid time line is very short. See Call for Bid Document.
