EUCF 2014 held in Frankfurt saw the Mixed division integrated into the annual cycle for the first time (previously only every 4 years). Push Pass teamed up with Get Horizontal to provide the Ultimate community with top coverage, filming the teams competing over the 3 day tournament in great weather. Clapham (UK) met Freespeed (SUI) in the Open Final, with Chevron and Bad Skid fighting for 3rd. Women’s Final had Iceni (UK) vs FABulous (SUI), and the Mixed Final was Sun (FR) vs Grandmaster Flash (PL)
Held in Bordeaux, this every-4-years ‘eXtended’ version of EUCF included Mixed and Masters divisions alongside Open and Women’s, and was played over 4 days & through two storms, one of which destroyed the HQ. Clapham & Freespeed met in the Open Final, with Bad Skid (DE) and Flying Angels (SUI) fighting for 3rd. Iceni vs U de Cologne (DE) in the Women’s Final, Bear Cavalry (UK) v Croccali (ITA) in Mixed, and Zimmer (UK) vs UFO Tampere (FIN) in the (not filmed) Masters Final.
Held in Frankfurt, EUCF2012 was partially covered by Playo.tv, who gained exclusive rights to film the Open & Women’s Finals between Clapham/Chevron, and Iceni/Viima (FIN).

Held in Brugges with 24 Open and 8 Women’s teams competing, featuring the most exciting Open Final of EUCF history as Clapham faced up against Flying Angels – one not to be missed.
