Season Tickets are now available for sale at Early Bird Pricing through Dec 31st

Tell us about you- Do you play ultimate? What do you do outside of Ultimate? 

Yes, I play league with AFDC and fun pickup tournaments.  I work in digital marketing for Georgia Aquarium

Why do you go to Hustle games?

Soooooo many reasons - the high quality of games, big exciting plays, supporting the sport that I love, and spending time with our amazing community.

What types of Hustle tickets have you purchased in the past?

Always season tickets. I go to as many games as possible and love the extra tickets that let me bring friends. 

Who do you typically go with or sit with?

I like to bring new people who haven't played much ultimate, to show them how fun it is. I also love to sit up front with the Heckle crew and get loud. 

What are your pre game plans on game days?

If there's time I like to go to Mellow Mushroom across the street to lay down a nice base of pizza and beer before the hard work of watching ultimate. 

Do you have any favorite moments from a Hustle game you attended? 

Playing the Raleigh Flyers last year, Allan Laviolette had a huge defensive block, followed by a monster offensive sky while toeing the line. It really got the crowd pumped up and seemed to bring even more energy to a tight game. I think it highlighted how explosive and dynamic the game can be. 

 

Do you have any stories from the crowd at a Hustle game? 

Last year I traveled to Dallas to visit friends and see the Hustle on the road. I loved bringing some vocal support to the team in hostile territory. It was a lot of fun and I'm hoping to get to a few more away games this year.

What are your favorite parts of the gameday experience?

I love the energy of the crowd, you really don't get that experience anywhere else in the ultimate world. 

What are your typical post game plans?

Hopefully celebrating a Hustle win and continuing the party in EAV.
