Ultimate Frisbee in Azerbaijan
The Baku “Evil Eyes” represent the latest chapter of a nine-year history of Ultimate Frisbee growth in Azerbaijan. Although games were sporadically and informally played since 1996 in Baku, the team started regular weekly practices in 2002. Originally christened the Baku “Nodding Donkeys” in 2003, the team now consists of over fifty regular players hailing from Azerbaijan, Canada, the U.K., Russia Australia, Germany, Nigeria, Turkey, New Zealand, and the United States. In June 2005, the Evil Eyes won the "Spirit of the Game" trophy in Nizhniy Novgorod and placed 5th overall. We are planning to host a tournament in Baku in 2006.
