February 10, 2015 – The St. Louis Gatekeepers will host the 2015 Men’s Roller Derby Association Championship “River City Rumble.” This fast and heavy-hitting weekend takes place October 17-18, 2015 and will feature the MRDA’s top teams in the end-of-season rankings. Competition for those spots will be especially tough as the MRDA continues its mission of encouraging the growth and development of men’s roller derby. MRDA will start this season with 56 leagues internationally and many more seeking membership this year.
The Gatekeepers will carry on the tradition of great events, and be the first league in MRDA to host this event twice, (the first being in 2012.) The Gatekeepers, founded in November 2009, have grown to become a highly respected organization in men’s roller derby, skill-wise and in sheer number of skaters.
The 2015 MRDA Championship will be held at the Midwest Sport Hockey Complex. Midwest Sport is the premier inline roller hockey facility in the Midwest making it the ideal spot for high-caliber roller derby. And, ample stadium seating will provide a quality spectator experience. The complex is located in beautiful Edgar M. Queeny County Park in the St. Louis suburb of Ballwin, just 20 minutes from the city.
Information about the event and becoming involved will be available soon. To stay up to date on the latest details follow the Men’s Roller Derby Association on Facebook.
