We did it!
WHAT. A. WEEK.
Was it just us, or did last week feel like a dream? Thousands of ultimate community members engaged with the Premier Ultimate to talk about the league's Player Sponsorship Program, and VC was lucky enough to be along for the ride.
Our Twitter feed was a complete pleasure to scroll through, filled with encouragement, support and gratitude as friends, family and fans from around the world came together to ensure that every single PUL player was sponsored.
In a surprise bonus round, teams launched an addition to the program to show some love for the people on the sidelines that help make it all happen. Coach and in some cases team staff jerseys were unlocked once all of the players were sold out and raised another $20k in support!
OUR MIND IS BLOWN
What can we say? There are so many amazing stories that have been shared this week, some of which we highlighted in our PSP Twitter Action post. We're going to continue talking about this and helping the hype grow as the league's second season approaches (first games are played on April 4th and 5th). Why? Because we believe in doing all that we can: using our voice to promote womxn's ultimate, and show young athletes that they can be what they see out there on the field!
STILL WANT TO HELP?
VC has created online stores for the Premier Ultimate League and all of its 12 teams. A portion of every sale goes back to the league or the teams to help support their operations. You can shop for PUL gear here.
Most importantly... plan to attend a game and take all of your friends! That's what this is all about - being able to see more amazing ultimate played!!
Thanks again, ultimate. You have made us so proud and we appreciate you so much. Stay tuned for more posts, including some behind-the-scenes snapshots from the VC and PUL crew.
