The World Flying Disc Federation (“WFDF”) is pleased to announce that it has launched today a new official website and domain name “wfdf.sport.“ The web site revamp was undertaken to upgrade the underlying site architecture, from the last overhaul in late 2011, to current standards, including native mobile accessibility. WFDF signed an agreement in 2018 to use the dot sport internet domain, which is managed by the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) for ICANN, as use of the dot sport domain shows we are a recognized member of the international sports community.

“Even though most Flying Disc competitive events have been cancelled or postponed during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic this year, we are extremely pleased to have been able to make progress in other areas such as IT and present our new website to the world, promoting all of our Flying Disc sport disciplines,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “The goal in our new website design was to continue to provide the full range of  information required by our global community in a fully transparent fashion and try to provide both the information about competitions and the full range of our disciplines, in addition to disclosures required for good governance — such as background on our staff and volunteers, full financial audit and tax filings, board minutes, and the entirety of our supporting policies.”

“In addition, in this more virtual sport age where one’s presence across the full spectrum of media is the key to success for any International Sport Federation, we have tried to make our site easier to use on all mobile devices. Having focused on transferring over the information found on our previous site for this launch, we plan to do a major overhaul of additional static content including histories and records in the coming months, as well as improving site functionality. While many people have played a role in this project, WFDF wants to thank particularly our board member Steve Taylor and the members of his team at LUX Interactive for their contributions in spearheading this project, to our IT Committee for their help in scrubbing it, and to our IT Administrator Luke Tobiasiewicz for managing its latest development stages. We also want to thank Andre Kruse who had designed the previous site and provided volunteer IT support for nearly a decade.”
