WFDF Transitioning to Men's

The World Flying Disc Federation is noticeably using Men's when referring to what has been historically been called the "Open" Division.  USA Ultimate renamed the Open division to the Men's division in 2013 to coincide with the launch of their Triple Crown Tour.

Recent past uses of "Open" Division:

And, now an example of a future tournament using the term "Men's" Division:

Regardless of what the division is called, the "Men's" Division is still considered an open division which has "no gender restrictions," according to WFDF's 2016 World Ultimate and Guts Championships WUGC event site.
