Thunderbirds and DiscStore Extend Partnership
The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds and DiscStore have reached an agreement on a partnership extension for the 2017 AUDL Season.
The partnership will mark the 2nd consecutive year the Thunderbirds and DiscStore will work together.
In 2008, DiscStore president, Chris Whirrett, was in college and trying to buy a few Ultimate discs online. He became frustrated by the high price, slow shipping, and poor service and knew there must be a better way. Chris built the first version of DiscStore.com that year over Christmas break, and bought one box of Discraft discs to sell out of his college dorm.
Over time, sales increased as word about the best service and best prices spread. They’ve since moved to a warehouse and retail location, grown to 18 employees, and ship thousands of discs worldwide.
DiscStore.com has a wide variety of disc related items for sale, from disc golf to Brodie Smith specific items to AUDL merchandise. In 2017, DiscStore will provide the Thunderbirds with new merchandise items only available at 2017 Thunderbird home games as well as 500 mini discs which will be thrown into the crowds with prizes attached to the back of each one.
“The mini discs fly really well and are so fun to use,” says General Manager Andrew Gardner. “It’s something the casual fan can always look forward to at our games this year – the DiscStore mini disc toss.”
