youre a fan of watching the sport of Ultimate, then
make sure to check out the Ottawa Outlaws this spring
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.
(Ottawa Outlaws) are very excited to move our team to
Millennium Park, its 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.
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.
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.
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.
West, the Los Angeles Aviators, San Diego Growlers, San
Francisco Flame Throwers, San Jose Spiders, Seattle Cascades
and Vancouver Riptide are lined up together.
South Division is made up of the Atlanta Hustle, Austin
Sol, Dallas Roughnecks, Jacksonville Cannons, Nashville
Nightwatch and Raleigh Flyers.
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.
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,
really excited to show Ottawas 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 weve
been able to draw some high-end guys from Europe and Alberta.
