after a long consideration we decided not to proceed with EFO this year. There were several reasons leading to this decision.
Covid uncertanity – even though the situation is still good here in Czech Republic, there are some indications in other countries that things could still go sideways…same as last fall. Plus EFO was supposed to be an indoor event and if there are any restrictions put in place again, indoor events will be the first to get canceled.
Money – as we started to think about hosting the event relatively late, we were not able to get any extra financial support and the budget would rely solely on the entry fees. And with the above-mentioned uncertanity we would be risking loosing a lot of money if not enough people showed up (just renting the gym for 3 days would require at least 50 players paying the full fee of 60 €).
Not enough time – I personally am running or co-running 4 disc golf tournaments within a month from the planned EFO date. Other members of Frisbeer crew are busy as well and we just would’t be able to invest enough time to bring you the event on a level you are used to. If we host an event, especially one like EFO, we want to have it a TOP quality and we just feel we could not pull this off this time.
I’m sure all of you understand these reasons and we’ll just have to wait for the first after-covid major a bit longer.
We really hope to be able to host you in Prague for Frisbeer Cup 2022. The date we aim for is February 25 – 27 so mark your calendars. If it’s happening, it will be BIG!

Dear Jammers, here’s a message from the organizers of FPAW 24:
” Due to questions from players and guests we would like to clarify most important information about FPA Worlds 2024 in Warsaw.
Date of the event is fixed and confirmed 100%. The event will take place from 14th (Wednesday) to 18th (Sunday) August 2024. From Wednesday morning to Saturday evening we will have a tournament – with all finals played on Saturday. On Sunday we plan “free jams” day and big frisbee event together. You can book your flights to Warsaw and plan your holiday calendar already. When planning your holiday in Poland remember about SandSlash – our annual big beach ultimate and freestyle frisbee festival – just few days after – from 22nd to 25th August 2024 in Debki, by the Polish coast. If we will have a bigger group of participants going to SandSlash we could organize a group bus for freestylers. Sounds awesome right?
The place of the event is not fully confirmed (yet). We are working hard to get additional funding and sponsors to rent this particular place. Also, we are planning to rent a gym nearby, so in case of bad weather conditions, everything will be as close as possible. The planned main spot is very close to the city center. We hope to confirm the location as soon as possible.
WEBSITE AND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT EVENT
Very soon (in the next weeks) we plan to launch our event website for players and guests with all the details you need to know about Warsaw and the whole event – like accommodation area suggestions, travel advice, schedule, competition and registration. We advise you to wait to book your accommodation until we launch the website. We hope to see you in Warsaw!!
