Sitting here at the bar watching Ultimate Frisbee on TV. When did it get THAT big?— Curmudgeon ?️? (@huzzahs4me2) August 7, 2017
**Ultimate is played in nearly 100 countries and there are formal WFDF member associations in 76 countries as of today.
**ESPN regularly features highlights of the professional American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) in its Top 10 plays.
**Alec Baldwin recently narrated a documentary on the sport, “Flatball – A History of Ultimate,” directed by legendary New York player Dennis Warsen. **Bleacher Report also recently featured how former FBI Director James Comey played Ultimate in college. Eventually, Ultimate hopes to make the Olympics. Paris will host the 2024 Games, while Los Angeles will host the 2028 Olympics. Governed by the “Spirit of the Game” in which the sport is self-officiated, Ultimate is played in Open, Women’s and Mixed Divisions. And the fact that it can be played on the same field by both men and women — liked mixed doubles in tennis — probably helps its cause for a worldwide audience.
