First Scheduled Pro Ultimate Doubleheader

Ernie Banks' exclamation "Let's play two!" can now be applied to pro ultimate. The American Ultimate Disc League becomes the first pro ultimate league to schedule a doubleheader. Montreal Royal is scheduled to play Rochester Dragons at 11:30am and again at 3pm on Sunday, June 21st.

The one-game-per-day format has been used since the AUDL started in 2012, while back-to-back games - 1 game on one day, 1 game the next day - has also been utilized around the league.

The second game on Sunday was not part of the original AUDL schedule; it is a makeup game of a previously weather-cancelled May 9th match. Read a games preview.

AUDL Week 11, 2015
Additionally, Montreal becomes the first pro ultimate team (AUDL) to schedule three games in two days - set to play one against Toronto Rush on Saturday and two versus Rochester on Sunday. All road games.

AUDL games are played in 12-minute quarters. So, Royal are projected to play 144 minutes (2 hours:24 minutes) of pro ultimate over this weekend.

This is a backwards-thinking idea.

Let us not devolve into tournament formats due to convenience. Let us instead march forward and carry the banner of "one day, one game."
