Get your Flannel, It’s Time for Seattle!

Rat City Roller Derby has put together so much for you to do in Seattle this weekend! From afterparties to halftime games, plus trackside seating in an amazing venue to watch some of the world’s best roller derby. Here’s what Seattle has to offer if you’re attending the 2019 International WFTDA Playoffs!

Want to sit trackside? We got you! Our WFTDA Trackside Fan Zone will be set up with exclusive access only for those who get on the list. What list you ask? Click here! The Fan Zone is the only way to get trackside seating, get your name in the Booty Basket draw, and sign up to participate in halftime games, and all it takes is one click to submit! You can enter right meow in a matter of seconds—all you gotta do is head on over to WFTDA.com/Fanzone.

That’s right, we have halftime games! The participating teams aren’t the only ones competing to earn their ticket to Championships.  We have 8 entertaining and engaging halftime games that will test your skills across multiple disciplines. The winners from each game will continue on to our Sunday night “Champions Halftime” during Game 16 where the champions will be put to the final test. Only one winner will emerge victorious with a pair of 3-day tickets to the 2019 International WFTDA Championships in Montréal, Canada! That’s a $170.00 value just for playing a couple halftime games!

First things first, make sure you stop by the Rat City Roller Derby merch booth. They are the official tournament merch vendor for this event. You are definitely going to want to get yourself one of these AWESOME shirt designs before they’re gone!

We also have some fantastic pregame entertainment lined up for you on Friday and Saturday, both at 5:45pm PDT before the start of evening the games!

Friday we’ll set your toes a’ tapping and your heartbeat a’ racing with the amazing Washington Diamonds Drill Team just before Game 5.
