The World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) has approved Universe Point as the WFDF Official Footwear Supplier and Partner for 2020-2023, after a competitive bidding process that was held in late 2019. This exclusive agreement will run for four years beginning in January 2020 and Universe Point will be granted exclusive sales rights at WFDF sanctioned events..
“We are delighted to award Universe Point the official footwear supplier contract again after a successful relationship over the last couple years,” said WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch. “They identified the marketplace need for Ultimate cleats designed specifically for Ultimate athletes. Their footwear is winning acclaim at every level of our sport and their partnership support will assist us as we continue to grow Ultimate and all Flying Disc sports.”
Based in Mendham, NJ, USA, Universe Point (www.universepoint.com) started in December of 2016 and was co-founded by the wife and husband team of Bérangère Barateig and Ed Sisson after years of observing that competitive Ultimate footwear left something to be desired. After working and testing their product with Ultimate players at various levels, and selecting a Mexican-based factory with extensive athletic footwear experience, Universe Point cleats became available to the public in 2017. They recently launched their 2.0 model.
“Universe Point is extremely pleased to continue our partnership with WFDF,” Barateig and Sisson said. Continuing our partnership represents a great opportunity to showcase the quality of our footwear products to a worldwide audience for the next four years, while driving greater awareness on global initiatives such as gender equity, Spirit of the Game and helping develop Ultimate in new countries. We are thankful for the amazing support the Ultimate community has shown us since 2017. We enjoy engaging with the many players, teams and organizers in countries all over the world and look forward to deepening these relationships thanks to the continuation of WFDF’s partnership.”
