Ultimate is a competitive, self-officiated sport that pits 7 on 7 on a field 110 yards long by 40 yards wide. Players in possession of the disc throw it across the field until a teammate catches it in the end zone (20 yards long by 40 yards wide). Players without the disc seek to intercept or knock the disc to the ground. Once a disc touches the ground, a turnover occurs and possession switches. Like soccer, the transition is fast and instantaneous resulting in some quick, exciting plays. Each goal counts as 1. Games are played until a team reaches 15 and wins by 2. This usually lasts about 90-120 minutes per contest.
