"Year after year, USA Ultimate hosts the most exciting and entertaining championship events," added Dan Konisky, president of Spin Ultimate. "We’re really looking forward to providing top notch Spin and VC championship merchandise for all of their events this season."

In providing USA Ultimate with officially licensed merchandise for all of its tournaments this year, Spin and VC add to their slate of high-profile events, which already included three WFDF World Championship tournaments this summer in North America.
