ANOC World Beach Games 2019 To Include Beach Ultimate

The ANOC World Beach Games is a millennial sporting event that will engage and inspire youth through beach sports, entertainment and an innovative social media and digital engagement platform. San Diego was awarded the inaugural World Beach Games only four months after local officials even heard of the event in October 2015.

One year later (October 2016), the Association of National Olympic Committees delayed the $135 million games until 2019. The ANOC World Beach Game is now rescheduled to October 10-20, 2019; still in San Diego.

And, beach ultimate ("Flying Disc) is one of the nearly 20 sports currently featured to be played at the ANOC World Beach Games. The beach version of ultimate is called beach ultimate.

The canceled 2016 World Series of Beach Ultimate/World Championships of Beach Ultimate concept could either help determine eligible teams for the World Beach Games, or could be replaced entirely by this international beach event. [UPDATE 10/27] WFDF's World Championships of Beach Ultimate (WCBU 2017) will serve as the qualification event for WBG 2019.

The 2019 World Beach Games would add another international ultimate competition to be played in the United States, The 2018 World Ultimate Club Championships is scheduled for July.  In addition, The World Games will be played in Birmingham in 2021.
