10 April 2018

The World Flying Disc Federation is pleased to announce the core commentary team for the WFDF 2018 World Ultimate and Club Championships (WUCC) in Cincinnati, Ohio this summer.

WFDF President Robert "Nob" Rauch noted that "for the first time at perhaps any World Championship event — in any sport involving both men and women — the on-air commentators and the production and technical staff will be comprised of more than 50 percent female professionals. Stay tuned for more important announcements about our additional coverage and distribution partners."

This news follows the announcement in March that Fulcrum Media Group has been named the official production coverage provider for the event.

WUCC 2018, the premier club championship event for Ultimate, will be held 14-21 July, 2018 in Cincinnati, Ohio. More than 3,500 athletes on 128 teams from 36 countries are competing and, for the first time, WUCC will have a team gender balance, with 40 teams each in the Men’s and Women’s Division and 48 Mixed Gender teams. The tournament website is http://www.wucc2018.com

"We’ve hired the best and the brightest, with an emphasis on storytelling and audience engagement," said Tim Rockwood, Executive Producer for the WUCC broadcasts, who also oversaw the WFDF 2017 World Championships of Beach Ultimate in Royan, France and the WFDF 2016 World Ultimate and Guts Championships in London. "In addition, we are privileged to have four seasoned Ultimate veterans competing or coaching at Worlds who will join us in the booth for commentary: Chuck Kindred, GeeGee Morrison, Qxhna Titcomb, and Robyn Wiseman."
