Q: Something that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough in ultimate is the space requirements that the sport requires to host an event. A three division tournament can require anywhere from 12 to 20+ fields depending on the number of teams and the game schedules of the tournament format. With so few facilities that can do this, and even fewer that can do it well with the proper sizing and spacing between fields for sideline safety buffers, and almost all of these facilities being built exclusively for other sports (soccer, football, polo, etc…), it’s reasonable to assume that ultimate will one day have to invest in its own facility.
I’m wondering what your dream facility would look like. Would you mimic Oshadega’s vision of a massive multi-field complex or would you load everything into a single facility for showcase games (maybe a stadium with complete media booth and all the broadcasting tech…and field with no football lines)? Perhaps some combination of the two? Anything goes!
