The Power of the Sprit of the Game Circle


Many of us know the Spirit Circle as closing ceremony of a game, where the teams celebrate the Spirit of the Game, thank the opponents and have a chance to give mutual feedback.

This has a big symbolic strength and we must be aware how powerful this is.
Hurdling with the opponent is something pretty unique to Ultimate and is definitely an eye catcher for spectators that don’t know our sport.  
The Spirit Circle is such a power tool, that should not be limited to the game closing ceremony but it actually brings much more benefits when done at the beginning of a game. 
A survey run during the EUCF2017 showed that 44% of the participants found that the Spirit Circle before the game in general positively influenced the way they related to the opponent during the game. During the same tournament there were just 2 occasions out of about 170 games, where the Tournament Ruling Group had to get involved because games were drifting in the wrong direction. 
If we think about it, it is quite obvious that if we have the chance to set expectations before something is done, then we influence our and the opponent behaviour. This is of course much better than e.g. getting the feedback in the closing spirit circle, that the opponent would have wished us to have acted or reacted differently during the game, when we have no more chances to adapt and improve.

The EUF is pleased to announce Luckygrass as the official apparel and merchandise partner for the 2018 season.

Following our request for proposal as merchandise partner issued on January 31st 2018, the EUF board has invested the last couple of months in selecting a new apparel supplier. Now the European Ultimate Federation is very pleased to announce Luckygrass as its official merchandise partner for 2018, with the perspective of prolonging the cooperation also for 2019.

EUF President Andrea Furlan says:

“We received five bids from companies all over the world, but the offer that Russian company Luckygrass made us was by far the most competitve one. The presence of Luckygrass as partner at various 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 Kate Barabanova says:

“Luckygrass has been producing sports gear since 2011 and the European and international market has been very important for us from the beginning. That’s why we are incredibly happy to become 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 it is important to look good, feel comfy on the field and don’t spend tons of money on this. That’s why we are always happy to offer a 25% discount to all elite teams that will participate at Championships – Europeans or Worlds – and a 15% discount for all teams that will take part in EUCRs. We are also happy to support the young generation and provide a 25% discount for youth teams and players under 18 years old.”
