MADISON (WKOW) -- The four best ultimate teams in North America will come together at the historic Breese Stevens Field to compete in the American Ultimate Disc League’s fifth AUDL Championship Weekend on August 6 and 7, 2016.

On Wednesday, Tim Debyl, Head Coach of the Madison Radicals stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the event.

The American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL), is the first and largest professional ultimate league in the world, with 26 teams throughout Canada and the United States.  The championship will be the culmination of 182 regular season games, with the best teams from each of the league’s four divisions coming to Breese to compete in a Final Four-styled playoff.   Two semifinal games will be played on Saturday, August 6, and a championship game on Sunday, August 7. All three games will be streamed live on ESPN3.

The Radicals have enjoyed their most successful season yet, racking up a 15-0 record, boosting their home win streak to 31, and breaking their previous attendance records.  Now, they are just one win away from competing in the AUDL championship game for the third time -- this time with home field advantage.  According to ESPN’s Evan Leplar, “the Radicals have drawn more and more interest from their local fans, which have gradually built a legit home-field presence.”

Semifinal games begin at 4:00 pm on Saturday, August 6th, with the undefeated Dallas Roughnecks taking on perennial contender Toronto Rush. The Radicals will play the Seattle Cascade at 7:00, with the final game at noon on Sunday, August 7. Tickets start at $15 for the entire weekend.
