Simon Lizotte’s Contract Details
Simon Lizotte is guaranteed a seven figure payout for the next ten year. He also received a six figure singing bonus and uncapped earning on disc sales. MVP also had to pay a million dollar buyout clause from Discmania. Lizotte just extended his contract for four more years with Discmania in the spring of 2023.
“The Leading Edge in disc golf now is paired with the leading man in disc golf – charisma, charm, and one heck of an arm. This partnership is a perfect match of technical and manufacturing skill, and the most naturally talented disc golfer on the planet – we are ready to turn the disc golf world upside down,” MVP Discs wrote.
MVP already announced the Tour Series Eclipse Hex with an axolotl stamp. The stamp is inspired by Lizotte’s pet. Lizotte is also expected to get his own line of discs. Most likely one of the first discs that will be released will be a Destroyer clone that is missing from the MVP/Axiom/Streamline lineup.
If you haven’t watched his announcement and in the bag video, you should. It is very entertaining and Lizotte is very honest about not knowing much about the plastic types and or the discs. He admits that he hasn’t had a chance to throw them because he’d be recognized in the field or on the course. Lizotte has to cram in a lot of practice before his first event of the rapidly approaching season. he’s keeping his eye out for an abandoned golf course somewhere on the East Coast that he could purchase and turn into “a sick disc golf complex.”
