That Cha-Ching heard 'round the Ultimate world yesterday was AUDL's announcement they plan to offer cash prizes for winners of the leagues championships & the finals.
The American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) announced that it will provide a total $25,000 cash prize to the players winning the 2013 Conference Finals and Championship Game. The winning teams in the Eastern and Midwest Conferences will each win $5,000 and the AUDL Championship team will be awarded an additional $15,000 bringing the total championship team prize to $20,000. The AUDL Championship game will be played on August 3rd, 2013.
So, for AUDL's 2013 championship team with a 25 player roster, this would net them $200/player for winning the Championship game, plus $600/player for the Finals win; $800 in total winnings per professional AUDL Ultimate player.

Factoring inflation, AUDL's $25k is nearly equivalent to the $15k guaranteed prize money in the early 90's CUERVO Ultimate Championships.
