Congress approval brings WFDF’s member national federations to 107 countries

The World Flying Disc Federation (“WFDF”) is proud to announce that its Congress has approved the Mongolian Flying Disc Federation (MFDF) as its newest national Member from Mongolia (MGL), increasing WFDF’s membership to 107 member National Federations (NFs).

“I take particular pleasure in welcoming Mongolia as our 30th member National Federation in Asia to the growing WFDF Flying Disc family,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “This is going to further strengthen WFDF’s and AOFDF’s discussions with the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) to grant recognition to Flying Disc sports. WFDF and AOFDF are targeting inclusion in the Asian Games programme in the next cycle. WFDF’s Development Programme, in close cooperation with our continental associations in Africa (AAFDF), America (PAFDF), Asia-Oceania (AOFDF) and Europe (EFDF), strives to add more member federations, while nonetheless maintaining an extremely thorough admissions process.”

Mongolian Flying Disc Federation (MFDF) Spokesperson of the Board Audrey Kulberg commented: “The Mongolian Flying Disc Federation is thrilled to be joining the World Flying Disc Federation as an official member. Over the past several weeks in Mongolia, the days have become much colder with shorter daylight, which provides obvious challenges for continuing to practice flying disc sports. But it is actually during this time that our enthusiasm and dedication to the sport seems most evident. It is so rewarding when players are willing to travel out in the freezing temperatures to play ultimate every week, and this love of the game keeps our mission on track.”

“We are so honored to receive support from the World Flying Disc Federation to help us continue spreading the joy of play throughout Mongolia. We believe that the values, accessibility, and opportunity for connection of Flying Disc sports are things that will benefit Mongolian society greatly, so we are excited for the new opportunities presented by this partnership. Further, we hope this recognition will provide more paths for our members to develop themselves as players, and our organization as a whole. It is an honor to be included in this global flying disc community.”
