Reminder: East Coast Derby Extravaganza begins Friday, June 25, 2010

June 23, 2010

The Philly Roller Girls are once again hosting the tournament that's made them notorious, the summer slam of roller derby, the East Coast Derby Extravaganza! ECE is a large-scale women's flat track roller derby event featuring an entire weekend full of competition by teams from across the US and Canada filled with as much fun and sun a derby gal can handle.

East Coast Derby Extravaganza 2010

85+ flat track women's roller derby leagues will face off in some fierce competition June 25-27, 2010 at the Sportsplex in Feasterville, PA.

The East Coast Derby Extravaganza is one of multiple flat-track roller derby tournaments to be officially recognized by the WFTDA in 2010. Two rinks will feature full-length, sanctioned bouts between all-star teams of WFTDA member leagues, while an additional rink will host half-hour challenge bouts between travel teams not participating in WFTDA action, as well as home teams and Extravaganza-special teams composed of players from across the derby world. That's three rinks of simultaneous derby action!

Results from sanctioned games are used to determine regional rankings among WFTDA member leagues. The top teams in each region from these rankings as of July will earn a spot in the first round of WFTDA playoffs. Tickets to the 2010 East Coast Derby Extravaganza are available in single-bout, single-day or full-weekend passes. You can find them here on Ticket Leap.

All registered skaters and staff are free to attend after they have checked in (the registration table is open 5pm - 8pm). Tickets are available online and at the door for unregistered attendees. The first bout begins at 6pm on Friday with the Philly Independence Dolls taking on the Gotham Girls Wall Street Traitors in a regulation bout. Then at 7:30pm the Gotham Girls take on the Windy City Rollers in a WFTDA sanctioned bout.
