PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (April 23, 2024) - The Philadelphia Phoenix of the Ultimate Frisbee Association (UFA) have announced Neumann University as the team’s home field for the 2024 season. In addition, the Phoenix will provide ultimate frisbee clinics and sport management instruction for the university’s faculty and students. Neumann University will also offer discounted educational courses for team players and staff, while granting facility access for Phoenix practices, media production, and gameday activities.

“This is one of the most unique and mutually beneficial partnerships in professional sports,” said Phoenix majority owner Dr. Christina Lee Chung. “We have a partner in Neumann University that exemplifies excellence, from on-site facilities to educational resources. But their commitment to helping the greater Philadelphia community is what makes this initiative so special.”

“Neumann University is pleased to partner with the Phoenix and introduce the campus community to the exciting sport of ultimate frisbee,” said Dr. Chris Domes, university president. “The league’s integrity rule, which allows a player to overturn a referee’s call and admit a foul, is a perfect fit with Neumann’s athletic commitment to sportsmanship and ethical competition.” 

The Phoenix will play five of their six 2024 home games at Neumann University, starting with the team’s home opener versus the D.C. Breeze on Sunday, May 5, at 5:00 p.m. ET. The team will host an exclusive pregame clinic for university faculty and students. Throughout the season, the Phoenix will also have access to additional facilities for practices, youth camps and pregame tournaments. In turn, Neumann University students will receive discounted offers for game tickets, food and beverages, merchandise and team events.

Inside the classroom, Phoenix players and staff will have access to onsite and virtual educational opportunities in a variety of fields. An internship program has also been set up in the sport management and communication areas of study to provide a hands-on curriculum for current students.
