Colorado Springs, Colo. (March 19, 2024)—USA Ultimate announced today the 72 athletes that were invited to represent the United States at the 2024 WFDF World Ultimate Championships (WUC) this summer in Gold Coast, Australia.

The competitive process to make the U.S. National Team began last fall when more than 200 players from a pool of 558 applicants were invited to try out for Team USA. Following a pair of tryouts last month, 13 coaches and selection assistants made their final picks.

With eight players spread across the men’s and mixed rosters, New York PoNY is the most represented club team, followed by San Francisco Fury and Washington Truck Stop with seven each. Denver Molly Brown, Raleigh Phoenix and Raleigh Ring of Fire are each represented by five players. Philadelphia AMP is the most represented mixed team with three players.  

Occurring every four years, the 2024 edition marks the return of the tournament after the cancellation of the 2020 event. Team USA looks to defend its three gold medals from 2016, where it swept all three divisions with a cumulative 29-0 record.

As one of 21 total countries competing Down Under, the United States is one of 11 nations taking part in each of the tournament’s three competitive divisions – mixed, open and women’s.

The Open division will consist of 14 teams: Australia, Austria, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States.

The Mixed division is the largest with 20 teams and features Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, France, Great Britain, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Panama, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, and the United States.

With 11 teams confirmed, the Women’s division includes Australia, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and the United States.

The tournament is set to take place August 31st through September 7th at the Runaway Bay Sports Precinct in Gold Coast.
