PUL & USAU Collaboration
The Premier Ultimate League is excited to announce that the league will be using USAU-trained observers in all PUL games during the 2019 season as part of a collaboration with USA Ultimate. In addition to using a ruleset based on the 11th Edition USAU rules (with some tweaks designed to enhance the spectator experience for the match-play format of the PUL games), each PUL game will have at least two USAU-trained Observers wearing green jerseys with the PUL logo on the front and USAU logo on the back.
The PUL has been working closely with USAU to ensure that the game experience in this new womxn’s professional realm preserves the self-officiated nature and “Spirit of the Game” that lies at the core of what makes Ultimate so great. We are also committed to providing consistency between Club ultimate and Professional ultimate and are excited to have USAU-trained Observers on the field operating in a similar capacity in both settings.
Big thanks to USA Ultimate for supporting this new endeavor into womxn’s professional ultimate and for helping to make the inaugural PUL season a success!
