Best Watches


Men's Quarter
The men's quarter final will be a tough matchup, the teams that manage to push through a pre-quarter will be hungry and coming off a good win - coming up against a seasoned contender will be a great challenge.


Japan v Colombia (Womens)
This matchup will be two wildly different styles of ultimate, played by two incredibly confident and skilled teams, going head to head - potentially to determine the final semis spot.
