Cheer on Brawlstars at WFTDA Playoffs in Viewing Party on Saturday

Ann Arbor Roller Derby's very own Brawlstars are headed to Seattle this weekend to compete in an international roller derby tournament! This is the first round of three Division 1 Playoffs that will determine who goes to Philadelphia in November for world championships. It will be streamed LIVE via WFTDA TV.

Join Ann Arbor Roller Derby skaters and fans as we cheer on our charter team with locally-brewed beer and delicious food at the Ypsi Alehouse.

Because this is an elimination tournament, the start time of the event will be determined by the outcome of the Brawlstars' first game on Friday. Watch this page for updates on their progress in the tournament and to learn when you can catch them streamed LIVE at the Ypsi Alehouse!

New to roller derby? Don't know the rules? Skaters from our other teams will be in attendance and happy to answer your questions. We will also be sticking around for the third place and championship games on Sunday night - you won't want to miss these world-class roller derby bouts!
