Fans, start warming up your vocal chords and get ready to cheer your brains out because this weekend is literally bursting at the seams with roller derby.
SEMIFINALS, MAY 5
First up will be one of the most exciting nights of the year for Cleveland roller derby as the league welcomes you to the semifinals for its home team exhibition games. Skaters will compete at the Cleveland State Wolstein Center May 5 with the Hellbombers vs. the Hard Knockers and the Rolling Pin-Ups vs. the Cleveland Steamers.
The Pin-Ups are in first place after an upset of the previously undefeated Hellbombers. But no one is safe in the semifinals. Winners of these bouts will determine who will have a shot at the highly sought Hazard Cup for the June 9 championship games!
Arrive early for a special match-up between our farm team, the Pyromaniacs, and our special guests, the Sandusky Roller Girls.
And don’t worry. While this event is family friendly, with a kids club and other activities, there’s also a bar for those who want to get their Cinco de Mayo fun started for the night. Ole!
Adult advance: $12; Adult day-of: $17; Kids (12 and younger): $6; Special group (Student, Military): $10
