History

First held in 2012, the Ultimate Invite Championship was a one division, 11 team event held in tandem with the USAU Championships in Sarasota.

The inaugural Ultimate Invite Champion, Boston’s Garuda, took full advantage of the weekend finishing a perfect 7-0 by defeating Houston’s Space City Ignite in the Championship game.  After couple tough early games versus Haymaker (13-12) and Medicine Men (10-8), Garuda went on to dominate their remaining pool play rounds to finish as the top overall seed out of Pool B.  In Semifinals, Garuda continued their strong upwind play and beat Cash Crop 15-6 earning their place in the UIC Final.  The Finals did not disappoint with excitement and competitiveness as both teams struggled with increasingly volatile winds. Ultimately, the game came down to the 1 upwind point giving Garuda the win in a 12-10 victory.
