New Year Ultimate Fest XXXII

The 32nd annual New Year Fest took place January 25-26, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ at Phoenix Reach 11 Sports Complex.

Congratulations to Lady Liquor (Women's A) and Mamabird (Open A), NYF XXXII Champions!

From Jim's wrap-up: "The Open A final came down to University of Colorado Mamabird against The Recruits, an MLU recruiting/tryout team from Philadelphia. It was a very hard fought game with both teams leading, but in the end Mamabird came out with the win! The Women's A final pitted Lady Liquor against Hella Bella. These two teams are consistently among the top teams in the Women's division, both being crowned the winner in the past two NYF tournaments. Lady Liquor was victorious in a hard fought game that capped off a terrific tournament."

Local teams were also well represented. "In the Open B pool the local Masters team, Crawl, won finals over Pineapple Express, another local team. In Women's Pool B, The Minions played a spirited game against Maul for the B bracket championship."

Special thanks goes out to all the volunteers that make a 46 team tournament run fairly smoothly!

These are rated as some of the best fields in the United States and are used to host National level tournaments for Rugby, Soccer, Lacrosse, and even Ultimate! We held the tournament there 2 years ago and everyone was impressed. This year we have even more fields allowing for more teams! More players, more layouts, more fun, and a bigger party!!! Speaking of the party...

Party & Hotel Information

The party will once again be held at the Comfort Inn Phoenix North on Saturday evening! Since the tournament was canceled due to weather last year, the party was the place to be! This year it is going to be even bigger!! The Comfort Inn has also worked out some deals for teams so they can stay where the party is at, as well as a 5 minute drive to the fields.
