UKU Event Announcements

This newsletter is intended to provide a simple stream of information about UKU events. At the point of launch, the intention is that this will provide a definitive source of the most important information relating to UKU events: - dates - registration processes - news updates in the weeks preceding an event (e.g. schedule released, etc)

2020 EUCS announcement

On 27th April, the European Ultimate Federation announced that European Ultimate Championship Regionals (EUCRs) would not happen in 2020, but that they are making plans for a larger Finals event (xEUCF) if it is possible.

In the UK, we combine the West region EUCR with UKU Nationals.  For now, UKU Regionals and UKU Nationals are still in the calendar as per our original plan.  If it is possible to run those events, we will go ahead, but Nationals 2020 will not be a qualification event to EUCF.

The UKU Competitions Committee is reviewing this change to EUCS and will confirm how the UK bids to xEUCF will be allocated teams in due course.

EUCS Bids 2020 & Rule Update for UKU Events

Following the latest WFDF appendix release, the Competitions Committee has agreed to implement the rule changes that apply to UKU events; section A7 - Receiving Fouls. The full WFDF appendix (including a track changes version) can be found here: http://www.wfdf.org/about/meeting-minutes/cat_view/26-rules-of-play/32-ultimate  

 

Also, after the EUCF decision to implement Gender Ratio Rule A at all EUF events from 2020, UK Ultimate will also be implementing the rule for UKU Nationals 2020 ONLY. Gender Ratio Rule B will continue to be used at ALL 2019-20 events EXCEPT UKU Nationals (EUCR-West). However, should both opponents agree, teams may use Rule A for their game(s) should they wish to.
