WAFC's invitation comes in response to ESPN's recent decision to include DC in its "50 States in 50 Days" summer broadcast tour.

"We applaud ESPN for their wise decision to broadcast from DC and look forward to providing them with exciting footage for use on SportsCenter," said WAFC President Tim Herbert. "Ultimate Frisbee is one of the largest and longest-running participant sports in the District. Mayor Anthony Williams recognizes our sport as a key DC summertime fixture, and we are grateful for his strong leadership and insistence that the District be included in the '50 States' tour. We look forward to working with his office to ensure that ESPN's visit will highlight the best that DC has to offer."

Ultimate Frisbee is a fast-moving field sport that requires exceptional stamina and precision throwing.
