Kopija Registered teams

Following the constant growth of disc golf globally and also success of the past WTDGC events, the 4th World Team Disc Golf Championships will see record 25 nations competing for medals, but also for points that will affect their WFDF Disc Golf World Rankings.

During the registration stage, it seemed that organizers might even “have a problem” with too many teams wanting to join the event (the opinion is that 32 teams is the limit to compete on two available courses), but unfortunately Bulgaria, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore and Ukraine, were unable to form a team, or they had to pull out of the event for other reasons.
With that in mind we are looking forward to the 4th WTDGC where multiple nations will compete for the first time, and we expect that this meet up of the disc golf world will be a great opportunity for disc golfers to connect and make new friendships, but also a big push for future editions of this event where it is very likely new procedures will be needed to fit all teams that will want to take part.

List of registered nations, according to the World rankings, can be found in a graphic below, while additional info on all teams can be found below it, in the second part of this webpage.
