|Local Event Guidelines
Local Tournaments must adhere to the UFO General Rules and Guidelines. Local competitions must use the UFO Freestyle and Throw and Catch Guidelines. The divisions, number of rounds, multipliers, etc, are up to the event host. It is advised that the rules for the local be published in some form prior to the contest. UFO Local events are open to all competitors, regardless of their ability, race, sex, enthicity, nationality, club or group affiliation. There are no limits to the number of locals a competitor may attend, however, only their two highest finishes will count towards their World Cup Series total.
Local Tournaments are generally lower profile events than Majors. The points available at a Local Tournament are enough to give teams the edge over close competitors in the World Cup series, but the Local Tournaments are not worth enough to allow someone to win the World Cup title without placing well in Major Tournaments. If Local Tournaments include more than one division, only the results of the Open Division (or highest division) will contribute to World Cup standings. Points at Local Tournaments are awarded to competitors in the Open Division Overall Category as follows:
Please note-there are no direct finals qualifications for the UFO World Cup Finals at UFO Locals. No Club points are awarded at Local events either.
In Europe, the top 3 finishers in the Open T&C division at UFO Locals qualify for the European Cup T&C Championship.
