The American Ultimate Disc League is proud to partner with Universe Point cleats for the 2018 season. Universe Point will be official athletic footwear sponsor of the AUDL. Players on all 23 AUDL teams have the option of wearing team-branded cleats for the first time in league history.
“We are extremely pleased to have the AUDL as a partner and provide our branded footwear to each team to increase the level of professionalism in this exciting sport " said Ed Sisson and Bérangère Barateig, co-owners and founders of Universe Point Cleats. "It has been great to see the AUDL grow each season and we are proud to partner with them this year.”
As part of the 2018 deal, the AUDL and Universe Point will be running a social media campaign to provide one women’s college ultimate team with cleats. Universe Point will also sponsor the “Cut of the Week”, which will appear on the AUDL social media channels during the regular season.
“We are really excited to be able to see players in full, team-branded kits from head to toe in 2018,” said AUDL Commissioner Steve Gordon. “Not only are the cleats themselves perfect for professional ultimate, we believe Universe Point is a strident company in their values, and will work with us in future sponsorship endeavors.”
Soccer, lacrosse, and football cleats are all frequently used by ultimate athletes. However, Universe Point cleats are made specifically for ultimate. They were designed by ultimate players, which translates to lighter, more comfortable, durable cleats. The cleat pattern is built for lateral movement and explosive bids in ways that other cleats fall short. They make Women’s shoe sizes as well as Men’s sizes, as they know one size does not fit all!
