The Ultimus Bowl is the annual playoff championship game of the International Simulation Football League (ISFL). It has served as the final game of every ISFL season since 2016 (S1). The games are scheduled each year in early to mid-February. Winning teams are awarded the Ultimus Trophy, named after the game itself. It is frequently referred to as the "The Ultimus" or other generic terms by non-sponsoring corporations. The week the game is played is often referred to as "Ultimus Week".


The Ultimus Bowl is played on the Saturday before the Ultimini Bowl, which is the first or second Saturday of February. The Ultimini Bowl is played on the Sunday afterwards. The ISFL Pro Bowl and the DSFL Pro Bowl are then played the week later. Teams for the Pro Bowl are selected by gms and coaches votes.

Selection process

The venue for the Ultimus Bowl is selected by the players committee during the early to late stages of the season. Many committee members create a logo and a description of the city of their choice and why the game should be played there. The committee then votes as a whole on which city would be best for the game. First place goes to the Ultimus Bowl, second place goes to the Ultmini Bowl, and every other season, third place goes to the World Football Championship. This selection process was adopted after the 2036 (S21) season. Before the process began, the team with the best record got home field advantage.
