The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) announced today that it has awarded the 2012 World Ultimate and Guts Championships (WUGC) to the Japan Flying Disc Association (JFDA). This quadrennial event will be hosted in the city of Sakai, Japan, 7 – 14 July 2012. Upon the recommendation of the Ultimate and Guts Committees, the WFDF Board of Directors approved the bid from the JFDA during their latest meeting, thus returning the World Championships to Japan for the first time since 1992.

“In the face of the adversity faced by the Japanese people due to the unfortunate events earlier this year, our decision to award the WUGC 2012 to Japan is an expression of our support for their recovery efforts and our confidence in the strong spirit and resolve of the Japanese people and Japan Flying Disc players,” commented Robert “Nob” Rauch, WFDF President, upon the signing of the Host City contract. “Japan has submitted a strong bid developed by an experienced team around JFDA President and WFDF Board member Fumio Morooka and Tournament Director Masakazu Honda. WFDF is pleased to be able to return the WUGC to Japan on the 20th anniversary of the first time the event was hosted in Japan, an event in which I personally played”.

Up to five divisions in Ultimate will be played during WUGC 2012: open, women’s, mixed, masters and possibly women’s masters. The Organizers expect a minimum of 60 national Ultimate teams across the various divisions to participate in this prestigious event. The World Guts Championship will also be showcased.

The event will be held on the 18 Ultimate fields of the J-Green Sakai national training center in the city of Sakai (Osaka Prefecture), located some 400km southwest from Tokyo, and 600 km southwest from the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The Opening and closing ceremonies will be held in the main stadium of J-Green Sakai on 7 July and 14 July 2012 respectively. The main venue can accommodate some 3,500 spectators.

  3. 2012 WUGC Women's Masters Division: https://www.facebook.com/groups/296963036987300/
  4. We have a facebook group going to get interest from women's masters teams too, from the player's themselves. I clicked on the above link and got nothing. We should create one group maybe? Our facebook group is called "2012 WUGC Women's Masters Division"
  5. I am happy to include people who want in on the facebook group. I have it closed to respect everyone's privacy on fb :) It's purpose is to gain momentum for women's masters from players themselves, offer easy communication to and from national orgs and WFDF from interested players around status and issues.
  6. Lol, that's the same group! I'm friends with all the Vancouver people!
  7. Can anyone give me any information about volunteering at this tournament, there doesn't weem to be any information anywhere Thanks
