If you’re a fan of watching the sport of Ultimate, then make sure to check out the Ottawa Outlaws this spring and summer.

After a couple of seasons playing at Carleton University, the Outlaws, who play in the semi-pro American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL), will be moving to the Millennium Park Stadium Field for the 2017 season.

“We (Ottawa Outlaws) are very excited to move our team to Millennium Park, it’s a great facility in which we will be able to control all aspects of the fan experience,” explains Jim Lloyd, Managing Partner of the Outlaws.

Now entering their third year in the AUDL, the Outlaws will play in the Eastern Division of the league along with the Toronto Rush, Washington Breeze, Montreal Royal, New York Empire, and Philadelphia Phoenix.

The Outlaws finished with a 7-7 record in each of their first two seasons and has yet to make the playoffs. With the change in venue, Lloyd is hoping the team will finally advance to the post season.

The AUDL is made up of 24 teams in four divisions. Besides the East Division, the West Division consists of the Chicago Wildfire, Detroit Mechanix, Indianapolis Alley Cats, Madison Radicals, Minnesota Wind Chill and Pittsburgh Thunderbirds.

Out West, the Los Angeles Aviators, San Diego Growlers, San Francisco Flame Throwers, San Jose Spiders, Seattle Cascades and Vancouver Riptide are lined up together.

The South Division is made up of the Atlanta Hustle, Austin Sol, Dallas Roughnecks, Jacksonville Cannons, Nashville Nightwatch and Raleigh Flyers.

The Outlaws will play a 14-game schedule beginning April 29 when they travel to Washington, D.C., to take on the Breeze. Their first home game will be against the Toronto Rush on Thursday, May 25 . Game time at Millennium Stadium is scheduled for 4 p.m. Admission is $10 per game, although several season ticket packages are also available.

An adult season ticket is $49, a youth season ticket is $25, and a Super Fan season ticket package, which includes admission to all seven home games and a 2017 home jersey, costs $95.

“I’m really excited to show Ottawa’s Ultimate followers how talented and skilled the Outlaws will be,” says Lloyd. “The majority of our roster is made up of players from Eastern Ontario and New York State but we’ve been able to draw some high-end guys from Europe and Alberta.”
