More than 100,000 people play some form of Ultimate in the United States. 20,000 + are Ultimate Players Association members playing in UPA sanctioned tournament events. Virtually every weekend there are a few Ultimate tournaments in the United States. Most of the high level tournaments are located outside of metro areas where ample field space exists for running a large weekend tournament.
The Ultimate Showcase is designed to place Ultimate in a metro area at a convenient location so that fans can come see the sport played at the highest level.
