European Ultimate Championship Series

Welcome to the home of the European Ultimate Championship Series (EUCS).


Skogshyddan and Woodchicas are European Club Champion 2008 – Bad Skids and Hot Beaches showed the best Spirit of the Game

The EUCF 2008, which took place in Paris from Oct. 31st to Nov. 2nd, has crowned the European Champions!

Congratulations to
Skogshyddan (SWE), who defeated Fire of London 13-9
and to
Woodchicas (D), who won against Icini 14-11

The spirit prize was won by Bad Skids (D) in the Open division with an average of 11,83 (standard is 8) and by Hot Beaches (CZ) with an average of 12,40.
Congratulation for the great example you set for the whole European Ultimate Community!!

 The schedule and all results are available here.

Generally teams felt that their opponents had an above average Spirit.
Just 3 teams in the Open division have been 2 points above average out of 7 intensive games, while in the women division most teams have been found playing clearly above average, with even 2 teams touching the 12 points mark!

Unfortunately there have been teams, who were found not completely living on the field the Spirit of the Game as the opponents would have expected.

I do hope that especially these teams can make treasure of this important feed back and actively try to improve their Spirit.

From a tactical point of view, the impression is that the teams with the best defense and fitness reached the higher positions.
While most teams showed a solid offense, but not always error free, Skogs really impressed in various games for the athletics of the defense line, which made the difference at the end.

I would also like to repeat the thanks to the organizers and the whole AOP Teams, who have been able to manage very well such a distributed tournament (up to 6 different venues!), providing the players a lot of very appreciated services, like the lunch box directly delivered at the fields, etc. for a very reasonable price.

Thanks also to the teams and to all volunteers, who made the European Ultimate Championship Series 2008 a big success!!

European Ultimate Championship Series (EUCS)

This European tournament structure is establishing an annual European Ultimate Championship Series for open and women’s clubs. This annual tournament series allows top European clubs to compete against one another and crown a European club champion.

The EUCS creates a base structure and calendar for the series and involve as many teams and nations and players as possible. The benefit of this tournament structure is to create better competition for the top European clubs and provide 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 compete at the EUCRs 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 fall 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 club play in Europe a strict eligibility rule is in place, which encourage teams to work on new players, but still gives the chance to good talents playing in small teams to join the roster of larger ones and make precious experiences, which can be used for the development of their smaller teams..

The EUCS is run by a staff of volunteers with support from the EFDF Director and staff. 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.
