The tournament kicks off today at 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time) with a matchup between Tampa Roller Derby’s Tampa Tantrums and our west coast host, the Bay Area Derby All Stars. Games run until Sunday at 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. EDT) with battles between Division 1 teams contending just weeks before the June rankings release for the top 36 positions in the 2017 International WFTDA D1 Playoffs: Bay Area Derby All Stars, Boston Roller Derby’s Boston Massacre, Sacred City Derby Girls Sacrificers, Santa Cruz Derby Girls Boardwalk Bombshells, Tampa Roller Derby’s Tampa Tantrums, and Terminal City Rollergirls All Stars. There has been a lot of movement this season in the 11 to 36 positions, and with the new WFTDA Tournament structure, these games are going to have a big impact on D1 versus D2 Tournament placement, along with D1 Tournament seeding. The tournament will also feature pairings between non-charter teams and WFTDA Apprentice Leagues: Santa Cruz Derby Girls B-Team, Tampa Roller Derby’s Bruise Crew, and Misery Loves Company’s All-Stars.
“We’re thrilled that Bay Area Derby is putting this awesome free coverage together for us to showcase on wftda.tv!”
