While USA and Japan took the honours at World U23 Ultimate Chmpionships congratulations should also go to all the GB teams that performed extremely well at the championships.

GB Mixed came 5th. Despite beating Australia in their last game GB missed out on a semi-final place on goal difference.

GB Women claimed 8th after smashing New Zealand in their final game.

World U23s really is sold out!

The WFDF 2015 World Under-23 Ultimate Championships is almost upon us.  On Sunday afternoon (12th July), the event will get started with the traditional athletes parade followed by a demo game between two local primary school teams, and then the Opening match between hosts GB and defending champions USA (Open division).  There are 41 teams from 23 countries mostly playing 2 games per day until Finals Day on Saturday.

If you didn't already know, we have limits on the number of people that can attend the event on any given day.  We have basically sold out on all days now!  We are looking closely at the numbers and trying to release a few additional tickets where we can - especially if we can help family and friends of people that are competing.  But really and genuinely, please do not come if you do not have a ticket.  It will not be possible to pay to get in on the day.  We understand this will be disappointing for some people, but the limits are there for the safety of spectators and participants.  In hindsight of course we wish our plans had provided more space for spectators, and as a result we have already made changes for Worlds 2016.  Thanks for your help.
