Birdfruit is a four-year old Seattle mixed team that is on a quest to strike a balance between winning games and winning the spirit award. Our cheers don’t make sense, our love for our team makes a lot of sense, and our enthusiasm never runs dry.

Backstory

Team members and then-employees at Five Ultimate suggested we be outfitted in a misprinted set of jerseys for the New Zealand National Team, but little did they know those jerseys were given away to youth players. While our plan to be called The Kiwis was foiled, we saw an opportunity to expand our horizons to other bird and fruit pun combinations, and once we started we knew we couldn’t be stopped.
