The Panama Ultimate Frisbee Association (Asociacion de Ultimate Frisbee de Panama, or AUFP) has been accepted as a WFDF provisional Member by an electronic vote of the WFDF Congress, approving their membership unanimously by the votes cast. WFDF now has a total of 56 members (39 full Members and 17 provisional members) in 54 countries.
“The affirmation by the WFDF Congress of Panama’s membership is a major step in the process of upgrading WFDF’s presence in the Pan American region,” stated Robert “Nob” Rauch, WFDF President. “As a new provisional member, Panama has already expressed interest in hosting major WFDF tournaments, and we encouraging nascent flying disc group in other countries in the region to work to apply for membership and become a part of the global flying disc sports family. Increased membership will be of great support to WFDF in the application to gain IOC recognition that we will be filing later this year.”
