The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is proud to announce locations for our 2019 International Playoffs, Championships and Continental Cups. Montréal Roller Derby will host the first WFTDA Championships to be held outside of the United States, from Nov. 15-17 in Montréal, Québec, Canada.

The path to #WFTDAChamps begins in September, with the first of our International Playoffs series in the beautiful hills of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA, hosted by Greensboro Roller Derby. The following weekend the Playoffs head out west to Seattle, Washington, USA, with host league Rat City Roller Derby. The top three teams from each Playoffs tournament advance to meet the top four WFTDA-ranked teams at the Championships in Montréal — where only 3,000 tickets will be available, so keep an eye out for the ticket release!

The two North America Continental Cups will take place in August, first with the Happy Valley Derby Darlins hosting in Orem, Utah, USA, followed by the Dutchland Derby Rollers hosting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. The European Cup will fill the need for roller derby in October, as Kallio Rolling Rainbow hosts in Helsinki, Finland.
