Appearances on AUDL Game of the Week in 2017 Season

The American Ultimate Disc League announced their live broadcast schedule for the 2017 season. A total of 13 regular season games plus some postseason games will be broadcast. In 2015, AUDL streamed 12 regular season games on ESPN3. The majority of 2017 teams will have at least one game live streamed on, but not all.

The AUDL West Division and AUDL South Division have the most appearances with 8 each (31% per). The East Division appears 6 times (23%) and the Midwest Division appears the least number of times at 4 (15%). There are four cross-divisional games scheduled in 2017.

  • One (1) team without a GOTW appearances posted a winning record in 2016; Indy Alley Cats (8-6)
  • Two (2) teams with a losing record in 2016, and missed the playoffs - San Diego (2-12) and Jacksonville Cannons (5-9) - have a GOTW appearance.
  • The two remaining original (2012) AUDL franchises - AlleyCats, Mechanix - will not have a GOTW appearance. Again.
  • All 10 of the AUDL teams without an appearance on the GOTW 2017 broadcasts did not make it to the 2016 playoffs.
  • All 1st and 2nd place finishers in the regular season of their respective division appear in at least 2 GOTW games. 
  • Ultiworld will provide bonus coverage (not accounted in pie graph above) beyond the AUDL Game of the Week broadcasts.
NOTE: Regular season games only.
