The sport has successfully grown in popularity, and as of today, there are seven frisbee teams in both Cairo and Alexandria; including AUC Mayhem, Maadi Ultimate, and Alexandria Ultimate. And to all frisbee lovers, this weekend is a happy one as the MENA Ultimate Club Championship 2019 will be held in Egypt once again.
