The world's best teams are set to compete in the prestigious eight-day World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) World Ultimate Club Championships in Ohio in the United States.

More than 3,100 athletes across 128 teams from 30 countries are due to participate with the open, women's and mixed team events due to be staged throughout the competition at Mason High School.

The first day is expected to begin with the second part of the WFDF Annual Congress, following on from today's proceedings, as well as athletes being welcomed by an Opening Ceremony and the first match in the women's tournament between Canadian team Traffic and Japanese side MUD. 

The regular competition is scheduled to run until Friday (July 29) and each final is pencilled in for the next day in addition to the Closing Ceremony.

It is the third major competition for the sport in recent weeks following the WFDF World Masters Ultimate Championships in Limerick and The World Games in Birmingham.

"Coming off a very competitive and exciting week at The World Games, we are really looking forward to continuing our action-packed summer with such an amazing large-scale tournament," said WFDF President Robert Rauch.

"World clubs is a truly special event, with its combination of elite play, club team dynamics, and social bonding on a global scale.

"We, at WFDF, wish all players and teams competitive success and an enjoyable tournament over the next eight days, from the first showcase game to the Closing Ceremonies, on the field and off."
