Vancouver Nighthawks announced today that they have once again partnered with the Vancouver Ultimate League (VUL) for their 2014 Major League Ultimate season.
With over 4,300 members, the VUL is one of the largest Ultimate leagues in North America. The 29 year old league helped provide the Nighthawks with enthusiastic fans at every home game at Thunderbird Stadium.
“The Vancouver Nighthawks are proud to continue our strategic partnership with the VUL,” said General Manager Brian Gisel. “The Nighthawks were warmly welcomed and enthusiastically supported by the Vancouver Ultimate community in 2013, and we look forward to our second season playing in front of the most dedicated fans in Ultimate.”
As in 2013, Vancouver Ultimate League members will be offered a 20% discount on game tickets, and the VUL will continue to sell its merchandise at Nighthawks home games. Additionally, at the conclusion of each Nighthawks home game, the VUL will continue to award one player from each team the VUL Most Valuable Spirited Player Award.
The Nighthawks will also once again participate in the VUL’s Ultimate Day in Vancouver on April 27. Nighthawks players will provide on- and off-field sessions for VUL members at the annual event, and will continue their tradition of helping the VUL at the league’s Super Clinic on June 1.
The Nighthawks home season opens in Vancouver against the San Francisco Dogfish at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium on Easter Sunday, April 20.
