WUCC 2022 Initial Bid Allocation Released

WFDF has released a bulletin for the World Ultimate Club Championships in 2022 next year. Among other information, the initial bid distribution was announced.

The bid distribution is based on rule E.5 in the rules appendix for 2021-2024. The bids have currently been awarded based on E5.1, E5.2 and a new proposed rule: E5.2.5 that is not in the current appendix. E5.1 gives a bid to each national federation in a division where they brought a national team to WUGC 2016. E5.2 gives a bid to the top three national federations from each division at WUCC 2018.1 E5.2.5 gives a bid in each division to each national federation who paid to attend the cancelled WUGC 2020 event and has not yet received a bid based on the other two rules.2

Using these three rules, 40 bids have been distributed in the open division and 48 in mixed, but only 33 have been distributed in the women’s division out of the 40 teams that WFDF is planning to host at WUCC 2022. Federations have until today to secure these bids, and WFDF will presumably use rules E5.3-E5.7 from the appendix to distribute the remaining bids in each division after some nations decline their bids, which is likely.

Compared to initial distribution for WUCC 2018, the bids are much more distributed among nations, as only three nations per division are receiving two bids. In 2018, many more nations received two bids and some even received three.

Here is the initial distribution of bids to WUCC 2022:

  1. In 2018, the game for 7th place was not played out, so in this case bids were given to both Germany and The Netherlands since GRUT and Hassliche Erdferkel tied for seventh place and only teams from Canada and the US finished above them. 

  2. Note: A previous version of this article said that this rule was replacing E5.5. This was incorrect. If further bids need to be given, WFDF will start with rule E5.3
