After a four game trial run in 2017, the AUDL is doubling the number of cross-divisional games in 2018 to eight.
Highlights include a rematch of the 2017 Championship between Toronto and San Francisco1 and Madison v. Raleigh, the top Midwest and South Division regular season finishers, respectively.
“Cross divisional games provide a unique opportunity for fans to see something new,” said AUDL Marketing Manager Tim DeByl. “We have alway intended to grow the number of games played between divisions. These games also serve to help balance the league as they generally pit top teams against each other.”
Here is the full schedule:
April 7: Minnesota Wind Chill at Seattle Cascades
April 14: Los Angeles Aviators at Austin Sol
April 15: Los Angeles Aviators at Dallas Roughnecks
April 21: Toronto Rush at San Francisco FlameThrowers
May 12: Raleigh Flyers at DC Breeze
May 26: Raleigh Flyers at Madison Radicals
June 2: DC Breeze at Pittsburgh Thunderbirds
June 9: Pittsburgh Thunderbirds at Philadelphia Phoenix
The league has not made any announcements about live coverage of the games but did tell Ultiworld that the pay-per-view model from last year will not return.
