The Olympic Channel is currently scheduled to show the gold medal match of Flying Disc (Ultimate Frisbee) at The World Games 2017 on a 2-hour delay instead of as a live broadcast. The final is scheduled to be played on Sunday, July 23rd at 17:00 (GMT+2), yet planned to be shown 2 hours later.
This is arguably the pinnacle of the sport which was officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in August 2015. One thing that distinguishes ultimate is the fact that are no referees in this game and all disputes are resolved by players in accordance with the principles of fair play. The fast-paced field game deserves to be showcased as a live event.
Let us show the IOC and The World Games people the power of the Ultimate community. Sign the petition and let the weight of numbers sway The Olympic Channel into changing the schedule and show the gold medal match LIVE!
