New WFDF Rules Appendix Released

The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) has released a new version of the Appendix to the Rules of Ultimate 2017. The new version came into effect as of 1 January 2020.

  • Changes to offside penalties (A6. Offside)
  • New hand signals for "4 Men" and "4 Women" (download diagrams and see #19 & #20)
  • New hand signals for Stoppage (Technical/Injury) (download diagram and see #18)
  • Guidance on how to deal with dangerous plays (B8. Foul and Violation Calls)
  • Changes to receiving fouls for contact that occurs after a block (A7. Receiving Fouls)
