Down U24 in 2018

The World Flying Disc Federation announced in January 2016 that WFDF's 2018 World Under-24 Ultimate Championships (WU24) will be hosted in the city of Perth (Australia) and organized by Australian Flying Disc Federation. Perth, capital of Western Australia, is located in the southwestern part of the country.

WFDF's WU24 is scheduled from Sunday, January 7 – Saturday, January 13, 2018, at the UWA Sports Park in Perth.

The event was formerly called "Under-23" but did not properly convey the age limitation, so only ultimate players under (the age of) 24 will be allowed to play Down Under in 2018.

Per the announcement: "To follow the calendar WFDF cycle of events, WU24 was due to be hosted in 2017 but given the seasonal issues it is being held early in the next year. Nonetheless, the age eligibility criterion for the tournament will be based as if the event were in 2017. Accordingly, the WU24 is open to all players who are fourteen (14) years old or older and do not turn twenty-four (24) years of age during the calendar year 2017. Therefore anyone born before January 1, 1994, is not eligible to play."
