There are a total of 88 teams (40 open , 30 mixed, 18 women), almost entirely from Europe, competing in this tournament. Nifty 50 is the lone team from the United States. Their roster draws from players throughout the U.S. and gather to play at great Ultimate tourneys.

To attend the Sunday finals, a ticket costs € 7.50 (~$10 USD).

Additionally, Windmill plans to be even more sustainable via a wastewater recovery effort. Via their blog: The 'FosVaatje' is a new installation built to recover phosphorus from wastewater sludge. It is done so in the form of 'struvite' (magnesium ammonium phosphate), which can be then directly used as fertilizer. With urine, recovery from 'pure form' makes even more sense, as 50% of all P  comes from pee (geddit?).
