AUDL 2016 Appearances on ESPN3

The American Ultimate Disc League announced their livestream ESPN3 schedule for the 2016 season. A total of 12 regular season games plus some postseason games will be broadcast. In 2015, AUDL streamed 14 regular season games on ESPN3. The majority of 2016 teams will have at least one game live streamed on ESPN3, but not all.

  • The Revolution will not be televised
  • Both new (2016) teams are on the ESPN3 schedule - Austin Sol, Dallas Roughnecks
  • 3 of 9 teams without any ESPN3 games are original (2012) AUDL teams - AlleyCats, Mechanix, Revolution
  • Two (2) AUDL 2015 playoff teams are not scheduled for any ESPN3 games - Montreal Royal, San Jose Spiders

By Division, Teams

South Division: 5 out of 7 teams will be on ESPN3. Raleigh Flyers will appear on ESPN3 the most of any AUDL team; 3 times. Atlanta Hustle will not be on ESPN3 while Nashville, again, will not have any scheduled appearances. 

West Division: 5 out of 6 teams will be on ESPN3. The lone West team without a scheduled appearance is San Jose Spiders (the back-to-back AUDL champions).

East Division: 4 of 6 teams are scheduled to be on ESPN3. Only Philadelphia and Montreal (a playoff team in 2015) are without a scheduled appearance.

Midwest Division: Less than half of this division's teams are scheduled with an ESPN3 game. The same four teams just like in 2015 - Minnesota Wind Chill, Indianapolis AlleyCats, Detroit Mechanix, Cincinnati Revolution - will not appear on ESPN3.

The South Division leads with ESPN3 Game of the Week appearances with over 25% of all regular season AUDL appearances.

East = 3 games
West = 3 games
Midwest = 2 games
