MLUltimate Update

The countdown clock finally expired for Major League Ultimate which revealed a more robust website, including no new details about the MLU teams and some brand-building slo-mo videos of an Ultimate play promoting the sport the professional league.

FYI on today's update:

  • The MLU inaugural season will begin in the spring of 2013 and consist of 60 regular season matches, two playoff matches, and a championship match. Regular season matches in this first season will be played within conference over a 12 week season. The post-season will then pit conference champions against each other to determine a league champion.
  • All games will be filmed in full & available for free viewing during the week following the game
  • The rule book is still undergoing revisions but the basics will be familiar to anyone who has watched refereed ultimate. 7 vs 7; overseen by at least 5 referees.
  • Referring to the AUDL, Nic Darling, the Executive Vice President, said, "Thankfully we have this beautiful experiment from last year. Despite their organizational problems, you have to be grateful for that." [Ultiworld]
