Two divisions at Talampaya 2020

Talampaya 2020 will for the first time have two divisions: “Elite” and “Ultimate lover”. Why? To guarantee a maximum of games between well-matched teams.

The “Elite” division is for national teams and high-level club teams, for example that have taken place in major championships. Games will be 90 minutes, with at least 6 matchs per team during the weekend.

The “Ultimate Lover” division is for everybody else! Teams that want to come and play competitive ultimate at a high level, with a focus on creating a fun experience. Games will be 45 minutes, with at least 8 matchs per team during the weekend.

Teams should indicate their preference for the “Elite” or “Ultimate Lover” division at the time of registration.
