About the Toronto Rush

The Toronto Rush joined the American Ultimate Disc League’s East division in the 2013 season – becoming the first Canadian AUDL team to join. The Rush franchise has been the model of consistency.  With 5 consecutive Eastern Division titles, 3 appearances in League Championship Finals, and one AUDL title in 2013, fans have come to expect to see this team excel on and off the field. The Toronto Rush organization strives to create a thrilling and heart-pounding atmosphere for fans by showcasing players with tremendous athletic ability and unparalleled skill in the sport of Ultimate.

In March, the AUDL announced the league’s three Canadian teams will not be included in the standard AUDL season due to travel restrictions at the US-Canada border. The Canada Cup, beginning it’s inaugural season on July 17th, will feature the three Canadian Teams competing in an 8 game season, culminating in September where the top two teams will face-off for $5,000 and the newly minted Canada Cup.
