WFDF is pleased to announce that the Congress has accepted the Frisbee Sport Federation of Iceland (FSFI) as a regular national member association of the World Flying Disc Federation.
“The approval of Iceland as a full regular member shows the ongoing support of our member associations for recognizing new Flying Disc nations. Iceland has been a WFDF provisional member for several years before this upgrade and their membership status results in all Nordic countries now being WFDF regular member associations,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch.
“We are always pleased when the activities and the hard work done by a growing association can be acknowledged with regular membership. We are looking forward to working with President Patrick Nadonley and the Board of the Frisbee Sport Federation of Iceland.”
“The Frisbee Sport Federation of Iceland welcomes the news that WFDF has accepted Iceland’s application for full membership. Though Iceland is a small country, there are a lot of athletes playing Ultimate and Disc Golf here. Our acceptance into WFDF recognizes the more than 20 years of organised flying disc sport activity in our country,” stated FSFI President Patrick Nadonley. “WFDF membership also helps the Icelandic disc sport community to better integrate into our national sport structure, and brings the benefit of our being able to participate in WFDF-sanctioned international competitions. We’re truly excited, as Icelandic Ultimate players will participate in their first tournaments abroad this year, with the team is sponsored by the Icelandic carrier WOW Air.”
