WUCC2006 team allocations released
11 October 2005
WFDF has released the initial team allocations for the 2006 World Ultimate Club Championships in Perth, Australia. These allocations are offered to National Associations who will then inform WFDF and WUCC2006 of the teams they wish to nominate. Please note that WFDF expects in some divisions that not all initial bids will be filled and bids will be re-allocated if/when they become available.
WFDF is asking National Federations who know they will not be able to fill their initial bids to contact WFDF and relinquish those bids. In this way WFDF will be able to get bids to other interested teams as quickly as possible.
WUCC 2006 will shortly start the process of official team registration.
