As a member of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL), the Chicago Union compete at the sport’s highest level in a city that offers a thriving ultimate community and world-class sports environment.
Chicago is an ultimate hotbed. The presence of numerous large-scale organizations and events in the area has helped facilitate the Union in quickly becoming a beacon of elite competition. We cherish our relationships with fellow Chicago ultimate organizations Ultimate Chicago, Machine, Nemesis, several other elite men’s, women’s and mixed elite club teams, numerous collegiate and high school programs, and showcase events like the perennial Sandblast beach tournament, which attracts players from around the country to beautiful Montrose Beach in the heart of Chicago each summer.
While they have yet to “win it all,” the Union have enjoyed tremendous success over its first eight seasons, becoming Central Division Champions in 2021, qualifying for the playoffs fives times, while also participating in Championship Weekend in 2013 and 2021.
The league consists of 25 teams (22 in the U.S. and 3 in Canada) and is comprised of four divisions. The Union compete in the Central Division that includes the Detroit Mechanix, Indianapolis AlleyCats, Madison Radicals, Minnesota Wind Chill, and Pittsburgh Thunderbirds.
