WFTDA Releases June 30, 2014 Rankings, Tournament Seeding

July 15, 2014

Today, the WFTDA is excited to release the highly anticipated June rankings of its member leagues. These rankings, which reflect games played through June 30, 2014, are used to determine the seeding for the WFTDA Division 1 and 2 Playoffs.

The international WFTDA Playoffs and Championships tournament series brings together the most talented, highly trained and committed skaters and officials from WFTDA member leagues to display the “Real, Strong, Athletic and Revolutionary” game play that pushes the limits of the sport worldwide. Whether participating on the track, cheering in the stands or watching online, the WFTDA tournaments provide everyone who loves roller derby an opportunity to witness the most anticipated match-ups of the year.

The Division 1 Playoffs include the top 40 teams in the WFTDA that met minimum game play requirements. One team declined their invitation, so the next ranked team was invited to the Division 1 Playoffs. Teams were split among the four Playoffs brackets using “S-curve” seeding, similar to what is used for NCAA basketball tournaments.
