WUCC 2014: Weather-Related Rule Changes, Updated Schedule [Presented by VC Ultimate]

The latest from WUCC HQ about Monday's games, rule changes, and the rest of the week.

LECCO — WFDF and the WUCC tournament organizing committee announced changes to the rules this afternoon and gave further notice about upcoming schedule changes.

All games will be played to 15 (instead of the WFDF standard 17) and games will be capped at 80 minutes, meaning it is likely that many games will hit the cap.

Here is a summary of all of the rules in effect this week:

WUCC 2014 Rules

Tomorrow’s (Monday) playing schedule remains almost entirely unchanged; some teams have been directly notified of minor changes. No games from today’s canceled rounds have been rescheduled.

“The tournament schedule for remaining days (Tue 5th–Sat 9th) is currently under review and will be based on weather, field and safety conditions,” WFDF reported in an official statement. “Due to the unknown weather and field conditions for the remainder of the tournament we advise teams to make every point and every game count.”

The fields are said to be “very wet” — it is very possible they are in worse condition today than they were yesterday because of this morning’s heavy rain. We will be reporting field conditions throughout the week.
