What is the WFDF?
The World Flying Disc Federation (“WFDF”) serves as the international governing body of all flying disc sports, with responsibility for sanctioning world championship and other international flying disc events, establishing uniform rules, and setting standards for and recording of world records. It acts
- to promote and protect the “spirit of the game” of flying disc sports play;
- to encourage flying disc sports play throughout the world and foster the establishment of new national flying disc sports associations, advising them on all flying disc sports activities and general management;
- to promote and raise public awareness of and lobby for official recognition of flying disc play as sport; and to provide an international forum for discussion of all aspects of flying disc sports play.
WFDF is made up of the National Associations (“Members”) that govern their respective disc sports. There are currently 46 Regular and 9 Provisional Members, representing athletes in more than 56 countries. These Members guide the administration of WFDF through a Board of Directors and an Executive Director. WFDF is recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), a member of ARISF, SportAccord and the International World Games Association, and it is a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Association code.
