European Ultimate Championship Finals
This past weekend the last regional finals were played to determine the European finalists. Sixteen open teams and eight womens teams will battle it out at the European Ultimate Championship Finals in Spain on October 1-3.
There’s a sweet little post on the Ozzie Federation website with some great tips for those traveling to one of the big WFDF tournaments this summer.

WIth only two weeks to go until Worlds there weren’t a lot of international teams attending the second installment of the UKU Tour. Irelands Dublin Ultimate and the Netherlands Cambo Cakes being the exceptions. (The first weekend of the UK competition included several more international teams; Ragnarok, Silence, Inside Rakete, Karhukopla and MUC. The report can be read here) The first Tour had a bit of a disappointing final as Clapham convincingly won over Chevron Action Flash with a final score of 15-5. Fire of London took 3rd place that weekend and England solidified it’s reputation as the strongest ultimate nation in Europe. How did the second weekend fare?
Is it just me or do amazing ultimate websites just continue to pop up everywhere? This site I stumbled upon might just be one of the most incredible feats yet!
The most extensive collection of ultimate national team results anywhere!
Those of you who have been keeping their ears to the ground will have heard about it. A small event in Amsterdam that grew out to be the biggest grass tournament in Europe. And that, mind you, in only six years time.
My name is Hilco and Tushar has asked me to join as a contributor to IAmUltimate.
I’m really excited about it, and I will try my best to come up with interesting content. I am based in Amsterdam, so I’ll mainly be writing from a continental Europe perspective.
Think tournaments like Windmill Windup, xEUCF, Paganello and more.
This weekend I’ll be going to the UK Tour II (The second of three weekends that make up the national competition in the UK) where a lot of big UK teams will be enjoying their last practice before WUCC.
So stay tuned if you want to hear about the toughest European competitors for Worlds! (well, minus the Swedes).
Good to be here, more soon!
