World Ultimate and Guts Championship 2016

WHAT: Quadrennial international ultimate tournament organized by World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF). Participating ultimate teams represent their country in the competition division(s) of men, mixed, women, masters men, &/or masters women.

World Ultimate and Guts Championships ("Worlds") differs from World Ultimate Club Championships in that each country may enter only one team per division at WUGC.  Just like the World Cup and kind of like the Olympics but dedicated for just one sport - ultimate.

A disc event called "Guts" is also played during WUGC.

WHEN: June 18 - June 25, 2016

HISTORY: WUGC has completed 13 tournaments, starting in 1983. Only five different countries have ever won a WUGC gold medal.

WHERE: UCL Sports Ground, London Colney, U.K.

WHO: Athletes make up over 120 teams from 41 countries.

SCHEDULE: Sunday through Saturday's schedule of all WUC games.

WATCH: Seven days worth of select games will be livestreamed for free by WFDF.
