Our home team season is over, and normally, that’s it for fans of the Burning River Roller Girls until our charity bout in the fall.
But this year, the excitement is just beginning.
This Saturday, June 16, our travel teams will compete against the Tri-City Roller Girls from Kitchener, Ontario in a double-header event!
These aren’t exhibition games. This is the real deal. Saturday’s bouts will count toward our regional cred and will posture us in the WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association) national rankings.
The HazMat Crew (B-team) and the Burning River All-Stars (A-team) are made up of the best skaters from our home teams. Imagine the Killustrator of the Cleveland Steamers skating on the same team as Hidden Ajennda of the Rolling Pin-Ups. Or Premo Donna of the Hard Knockers getting an assist from Morbid Cherub of the Hellbombers.
It’s a dream team for Cleveland roller derby fans, and it’s all going down this Saturday. Witness the best of the best of the Burning River Roller Girls as they compete in the first ever international roller derby bout at the Wolstein Center!
And if that wasn’t enough, show up early to watch our special guests, the Glass City Rollers of Toldeo face off against BRRG’s Pyromaniacs, the team from which our home teams draft skaters. You’ll want to keep an eye on these faces — they are the future of BRRG!
Tickets are $12 in advance, $17 at the door. Be there! Oh and don’t forget to wear your orange and blue!
