2018 Roller Derby World Cup Hosted by Rainy City Roller Derby

The third Roller Derby World Cup is taking place at EventCity in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. This 4-day event is being held 1 February – 4 February 2018 and welcomes 41 women’s teams from around the world competing on 3 tracks.

The venue, EventCity, is a huge 16,000 sq. metre [172,000 sq. ft] hosting space, located in Trafford, not far from the internationally renowned Old Trafford soccer venue, home of Manchester United Football Club. The borough of Trafford, part of the Greater Manchester metropolitan area, is well suited to hosting international events as a result, with extensive accommodation and facilities.

All tickets are general admission for all 4 days of the event. Children 10 and under are free.

Regular price is $125 USD for all four days (approx. £97.63, €111.77 before fees).

Only 1500 tickets will be sold this round, and more tickets will be added down the road.

Event is expected to begin at 8AM every day and possibly end at 9PM every night. Sunday night may end sooner. Schedule will be released in advance and is subject to change.

More information about the event (teams, schedule, etc) will be posted here and on our website as it becomes available.

Tickets are non-refundable, but you may transfer them to anyone. There are no assigned seats and seating is not guaranteed for all games. There will be bleacher and chair seating available but they may fill up during more popular games. There will be additional space to stand or sit on the floor around the tracks.

For Tournament Head Referees we have: Eric Rawk and Reverend Riot.
For Tournament Head NSOs we have: Petti and Kirahvi.

Rawk and Rev. Riot, from the U.S.A., are both WFTDA Level 5 Certified Referees, with a wealth of experience refereeing the highest levels of WFTDA tournament play. They return as THRs for the Roller Derby World Cup 2018 from the 2011 and 2014 Roller Derby World Cup.

Petti and Kirahvi are both WFTDA Level 3 Certified NSOs – amongst the highest certified NSOs outside of North America. Petti hails from the south of England, and Kirahvi from Finland, but they have both officiated at the highest level tournaments in roller derby, often at the same time. They return to officiate the Roller Derby World Cup from their attendance in 2014, and will hopefully also be taking their matching sequined backpacks acquired at that event!

The application for officials is below. Deadline is May 18, 2017.
