Championship Weekend III in Toronto
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2013 – The American Ultimate Disc League is happy to announce that the city of Toronto will host Championship Weekend III next season. Varsity Stadium, home to the Toronto Rush, will serve as the primary venue for both the Semi-Finals and the Championship Game on July 26th- 27th, 2014.
“Toronto has one of the best Ultimate communities in the world, and that community has been very supportive of the Rush and the AUDL. We felt like this was the perfect location for our Season III Championship games,” said AUDL Commissioner Steve Gordon. Last season the Rush led the league in average attendance, and set a single game attendance record of nearly 2400.
Gordon went on to say that the AUDL Player’s Prize will be back for the 2014 Season. “We felt like $25,000 was a very good number. It shows our level of commitment to the players by rewarding them for their hard work and dedication to the League.” Last season the Toronto Rush players took home $20,000 for winning the AUDL Championship II, and the Madison Radicals players took home $5000 after falling just short in the Championship game.
