So one of the big changes in the new AUDL league is field size:

"The field of play is a rectangular area 53 1/3 yards wide and 80 yards long with 20 yard end zones on either end."

How will this field size change affect ultimate strategy both on offence and defence?

I read your other post and response about the bigger size of the field, and I agree.  This will definitely affect defensive strategies.  In particular, the zone.  With so much space, I foresee it being much easier to shred a Zone D, even in a moderate to stiff wind.

I'm wondering what D strategies could be implemented with this increase in field space.  Anything new to bring to the table?

Hmmmmmm......

The 20 yard endzones are actually a reduction in size and coincides with college nationals this coming year.  I expect to see more of a shift to 20 yard endzones as a standard.  I know that in most all the tournaments I play in, the endzones are shorter than regulation due to size constraints anyways, so it makes sense.

Yeah I think 20 yard endzones are more than enough, despite being a bit smaller than previously.

I think I read somewhere that at one point the endzones were going to be reduced to 10m and that playing field was going to be 100m - I'm glad that idea was scrapped.
