EUF is very pleased to announce the next European youth ultimate championships:
EYUC in Wroclaw, August 10-17 2019
This will be most likely the largest European ultimate championships ever, even bigger than EUC; we expect 60+ teams. With the strong growth in junior ultimate, it will also probably be the last time we can hold all 4 divisions (U17 women and MEN; U20 women and MEN) together, for the sheer size.
EYUC will be played on 2 locations: the well-known Pola Marsowe fields around the Olympic stadium (EYUC 2011, EUCF 2015 and 2018, WJUC 2016, WG 2017) and at Olawka fields. We will have 14 natural grass fields and 5 astroturf fields at those locations; more astroturf fields in reserve.
The same experienced TOC is running the tournament. Many thanks to them!
After the last six EYUC in western Europe, EUF felt the strong need to go further east, where plenty of new national teams have formed over the past years, but without the financial capacity to travel far. High on our list for hosting was Debrecen (HUN), but unfortunately the local football academy pulled out so we were lacking fields. Wroclaw stepped in as the only central / east location, and also with an excellent bid at moderate costs.
Many thanks to the Debrecen TOC, and to Györ and Italy for also offering to host!
In Wroclaw there will be plenty of different accomodation options available at short distance to the fields, at low costs. More details will be out in the fall.
In 2016, prior to EYUC, we held EYUCup in Debrecen. This was a 4 day youth national team event, which was attended by many teams that were not yet ready to attend a full EYUC. Moreover some other teams used it as a preparation for EYUC. For 2019, more regions may do this; southwest and northeast have already expressed their interest in holding an EYUCup prior to EYUC.
