Cowtown Butchers Join the Men’s Roller Derby Association


August 4, 2011 – The Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) is proud to announce today its 16th member, the Cowtown Butchers of Kansas City, Missouri. As a new member of the MRDA, Cowtown joins the ranks of the elite men’s leagues that are skater owned and operated. MRDA is the governing body for male flat track roller derby, and it engages in sanctioned interleague play that includes a championship tournament.

The Cowtown Butchers have an upcoming and sanctioned bout August 20 against MRDA members Your Mom Men’s Derby of Des Moines.
About the MRDA

The Men’s Derby Coalition was founded in 2007 as a loose federation of men’s derby leagues. The Men’s Roller Derby Association is a new incarnation of the MDC legacy. With the same passionate men and women at the helm of MRDA, we continue to promote men’s derby through resource sharing. But now – we are focused on developing more benefits to leagues who become members. Such benefits include: umbrella insurance coverage, and the ability to compete in the annual MRDA Championship tournament. With encouragement from the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), MRDA hopes to build a strong and influential organization like WFTDA. Our aim is to complement their contributions to the sport of roller derby and offer new perspectives to the derby community.
