Next month Sherbrooke Mayor Évelyne Beaudin will be the honorary president of the first professional Ultimate Frisbee game to take place in Sherbrooke!

On Friday May 27 at 7 p.m. the Montreal Royal will face the New York Empire at Sylvie-Daigle Park.
“The Empire is the biggest team in the league! It’s going to be quite a show. I am very happy to have been chosen as honorary president. Ultimate is a sport that I play and that I love,” explained mayor Beaudin in a press release.

The game will be preceded by pre-game activities to make the event festive for the entire population. The Montreal Royal and the Sherbrooke Ultimate Association want to attract families and introduce the sport to as many people as possible.

“We know that there is a good pool of Ultimate Frisbee fans in the region and we are really looking forward to playing in Sherbrooke,” said Jean-Lévy Champagne, co-owner and executive director of the Montreal Royal.
