The World Flying Disc Federation is pleased to announce that the Congress has approved the Uganda Ultimate Frisbee Association (UUFA) as a full National Member association. The Portuguese Association of Ultimate and Disc Sports (APUDD) was also upgraded from Provisional member to full National Member association.  The acceptance of these two new regular members brings the WFDF membership to 58 member associations in 55 countries.

“We are excited to see both of these associations approved for full National Membership.  We are particularly pleased to accept a new member from the African continent where there has been a growing interest in disc sports,” commented WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch.  “And, of course, it is gratifying to see the progress that has been made in Portugal in the three years since they were first accepted as a Provisional Member.”

“The newly established WFDF Sport for All and Development Commission will provide guidance and support for all disc sports group in countries that have yet to become members as we encourage them to consider WFDF membership. I welcome President Alex Matovu from UUFA in Uganda as a member of this Commission and am certain he will be focused on supporting his disc sport neighbors in Africa.”
