Since the series is as yet untested, the goal for the first year or two is to create a base structure and calendar in order to start the series and involve as many teams and nations and players as possible. The obvious and initial benefit of this tournament structure is to create better competition for the top European clubs and incentive for mid-level clubs to improve their games with the hope of making it to Finals (EUCFs).
Europe has been divided into four geographic regions. Each nation (or group of nations if they are very small) may send a maximum number of qualified teams to its European Club Regional (EUCR) tournament. The ideal entry to an EUCR would be from Country’s nationals results. However a national federation may also nominate its EUCR candidates. These teams at the EUCRs in turn compete to advance to the European Club Finals (EUCFs).
EUCR and EUCF tournaments will be standardized as much as possible in order to ensure fair seeding and important game-play throughout the tournaments. EUCR tournaments will be held from the second half of August to the first half of September and be centrally located in order to minimize travel times for regional teams. The EUCFs will be held in mid-October in a nation offering the best bid. Attention will be paid to excellent fields and agreeable weather.
With the goal being to increase the level of play in Europe, combining teams and picking up ringers for the tournament series is discouraged.
The championship series is run by a staff of volunteers with support from the EFDF Director and staff at the EFDF. Other volunteers essential to the operation of the Series include committee members who specialize in elements of competition such as rules, eligibility and tournament formats.
By implementing this system it’s hoped that the level of European Club play will quickly attain the level of North American, Japanese and Australian Ultimate.
