Nicaragua has become the 88th member of the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) after the country's application was unanimously approved by the body's Congress.
The Federación de Disco Volador de Nicaragua (FEDIVONIC) is the latest national body to join the WFDF.
Nicaragua follows the Cayman Islands and Malawi, who were approved as members of the WDFF in June.
WFDF President Robert Rauch said more Central American and African countries are expected to become members of the organisation in the near future.
"It is a great pleasure to see organised flying disc sport development success in Central America with a growth of our family during these times," Rauch said.
"This is another example of the success of the WFDF Development grants programme, as we provided a grant in 2017 to Nicaragua which catalysed their development."
FEDIVONIC President Exequiel Rocha thanked the WFDF and its members for the approval.
"We are deeply grateful to the staff of the WFDF for their advice and assistance, and to each of the current member national federations for their support in voting in favour of us as a member of the WFDF," Rocha said.
"Being a WFDF National Federation has been a goal of ours for several years and, now that it has been achieved, it will open up so many more doors to help us achieve our other goals as the governing body for flying disc sports in Nicaragua."
