When FIGJAM finished the 2013 Canadian Ultimate Championships with a perfect 9-0 record we secured a bid to the 2014 World Ultimate Club Championships (WUCC).
WUCC will take place in Lecco, Italy; a beautiful small town on Lake Como in the foothills of the Alps. At WUCC 2014 there will be approximately 160 teams in 5 divisions with roughly 4,000 like-minded high-performance athletes, families, and spectators.The tournament starts on Saturday August 2, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. with the opening ceremony and inaugural game, and will end on Saturday August 9, 2014 at around 6:00 p.m., with the last final and closing ceremony.
Most of the games will be played at a single 41-hectare location, the Polo club “La Nuova Poncia” in “Annone Di Brianza”, where 33-37 fields will be set on laser flat soft green grass. All the players’ facilities will also be at “La Nuova Poncia”Having all the fields in one single location will give players as much opportunity as possible to also become spectators between games, to observe or scout other teams, to take part in all the planned daily activities, or just to enjoy the tournament. Tournament organizers have planned the event to maximize the chance for players and spectators to make the most of the experience of having the top teams coming from all around the globe to a single location.
