Background

Ultimate

Ultimate is often described as combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football. Ultimate is rooted in a foundation called “Spirit of the Game,” which demands that the values of sportsmanship, integrity and fair play are held at a higher priority than victory. This foundation, along with the incredibly accessible nature of the game, make Ultimate and the AUDL the most unique value in the world of sports.

American Ultimate Disc League

AUDL is the first and largest professional Ultimate league in the world and features 26 teams from across the country. AUDL is the professional embodiment of a cultural movement that celebrates athleticism, teamwork, skill, action and camaraderie. Select AUDL games are now carried on ESPN3 with highlights often making the ESPN Top 10.
