Just a quick update on the WCBU: It is going fast… 🙂
Lots of countries already signed up. Fifteen Mixed, twelve countries in Open, eight in Women, and nine in Masters. Plus still potential to get the Grandmasters and Mixed masters filled up with 6 countries per division.
Many more countries are getting close to signing up too. Most of the power houses have signed up. We are still missing countries such as France, Brazil, Japan, Italy, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Hungary, Denmark, South Africa, Latvia, Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela but they are all working on it.
Furthermore some new countries such as Uganda and United Arab Emirates are trying to get enough players and might really be present. That would be sweet!
We are working with Ultimate Peace to get some players from the Middle east: Arab Israelis, Palestinians from the West Bank, and Jewish Israelis.
In the meantime on the sponsorship side things are moving forward well. Discraft and Flashflight were the first two to sign up. Plus we have lots of other good conversations, broadcast interest, and much more.
On the ground things the local organizing committee is doing a great job getting the city of Lignano involved and getting the best deals for the players.
It is lots of work but we feel the excitement building and that makes us all very excited!
Can’t wait to see you on the beach!
