The Vancouver Ultimate League and The Vancouver Nighthawks of MLU are proud to announce the formation of a strategic partnership for the 2013 MLU Season. As the first professional Major League Ultimate team in Canada, the Nighthawks are excited to be aligned with one of the world's largest and well-known ultimate leagues. Both parties are looking forward to continue raising the profile of ultimate in Metro Vancouver.

As part of this agreement the Nighthawks will be coming to a number of VUL events, and the VUL will be providing player sportsmanship awards at all 5 Nighthawks home games. VUL members can receive a 20% discount on Nighthawks season or single game tickets when purchased on-line through the Nighthawks website. Members should look for a promotional ticket code in an upcoming email from the VUL.

The first Nighthawks home game will take place at 7pm on Saturday, April 27th at Thunderbird Stadium. You’ll be able to meet the Nighthawks earlier that day at ‘Ultimate Day’, the VUL's Summer League Kick-off event which includes free clinics & workshops, a trade-show, and a free bbq. Ultimate Day takes place at Van Tech Secondary School from 9am to 5 pm.

Both the VUL and Nighthawks are looking forward to this exciting start of an exciting year for ultimate in Vancouver!

Hi everyone,

A bunch of us are helping the Nighthawks make the games and the MLU fun for the likes of you. We really like the game awards for the top 5 most spirited dudes out there. Sweet idea. We have other ideas brewing to make this fun, but we figure you have way more than we do. So far we have heard:
- half time challenges (throw accuracy, etc)
- music, beer, food (of course ;)
- keep the game moving
- fantasy games?

We have other ideas, like prizes for teams that dress up to support the HAWKS, or contests on FB/Twitter. But what do you think?

Feedback welcome here or on our FB or Twitter accounts.

Thanks for your help!
