AUDL 2014 Expansion

American Ultimate Disc League finally announced expansion teams for their 2014 season. Beyond the Montreal (Royal) team, a five-team Western Conference was formed with Salt Lake City Lions, San Francisco Flamethrowers, San Jose Spiders, Seattle Raptors and Vancouver Riptide.

Adding 6 new teams is a 50% increase to the 12-team existing league, but a 74% drop in the AUDL's original 2014 expansion plan (23 total teams).

Also, this marks the reincarnation of AUDL's "Western" Conference. In AUDL's inaugural year, what is currently known as the "Midwest" conference was originally its "Western" Conference." Indianapolis AlleyCats won the Western Conference in 2012.
