In Official Communication, Press Release * Official Communication by WFDF

The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) and the Beach Ultimate Lovers Association (BULA) are seeking potential host organizers for the WFDF & BULA 2015 World Championships of Beach Ultimate (WCBU2015). Co-hosted by both WFDF and BULA, this tournament is the premier world championship for Beach Ultimate.  The deadline for submitting completed bids for WCBU2015 is 30 November 2013.  It is expected that the final bid selection will be announced no later than the first quarter of 2014.

All potential bidders must notify WFDF and BULA of their intention to bid (no actual details required) by 25 October 2013.  This letter of interest should be sent to both ed@wfdf.org and wcbu2015@beachultimate.org. This letter should address proposed dates, the basic organizing committee and experience, map of the location, and a short description why this host is a great candidate.

Importantly, due to conflicts in the summer schedule in 2015, we are seeking bids for this weeklong event for times other than the months of July and August or the period from 25 September – 5 October 2015.

For information about this event or on the bidding process and for the bid guidelines, please contact Patrick van der Valk, WFDF Beach Ultimate Chair and BULA President (wcbu2015@beachultimate.org).

The previous World Championships of Beach Ultimate, a week-long event held in August 2011 in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy, hosted 1,060 players on 72 teams from 29 countries and five continents.  Previous WCBU events were held in 2007 in Maceio, Brazil and in 2004 in Figueira da Foz, Portugal.
