European Ultimate Federation (EUF) is the governing body for the sport of Ultimate in Europe. As part of the EFDF and the World Flying Disc Federation the EUF works for the coordination and development of Ultimate in Europe and the promotion of its Spirit of the Game ideals. The EUF coordinates Ultimate associations in Europe, and supports Ultimate in countries where there are no local organization. The EUF organizes tournaments for European teams, develops educational programs and courses for them, and support other activities of interest. Its board of directors is elected every two years, the latest election took place in October 2014.

History[edit]

The EUF was conceived in 2007 out of the need of the European Ultimate associations to have a highly professional and transparent coordinating body. Formally founded in 2009 under the WFDF, in the past few years the EUF has evolved to meet and foster changes in the fast-growing Ultimate community, while staying true to its focus on upholding the ideals of the Spirit of the Game.

Open European Ultimate Club Youth Championship (OEUYC)[edit]

Since 2005 the European Ultimate Federation is organizing a new annual event for teams of players under 17, the European Youth Ultimate Championship (EYUC). In 2014 the name of the tournament has been changed to Open European Youth Ultimate Championship (OEYUC).[2] The purpose of this tournament is to offer even to younger players the opportunity to be seen on a global stage and demonstrate how much the sport has grown even in the younger age brackets. Since the first edition held in Gothenburg, Sweden, which had only two open U17 teams, the tournament has grown to include 10 open teams (including a U17 team from Colombia) and 5 women teams in the 2014 edition.
