MRDA joins WFTDA in open letter to FIRS and the IOC on the governance of roller derby

Today the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) issued a letter to the Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) to reaffirm its position as the official governing body of roller derby, contrary to any claims by other organizations. The WFTDA also issued a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) asserting its position, presenting its partners in the governance of the sport, and rejecting any claims by FIRS or other bodies claiming to govern roller derby.

The Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) proudly supports the WFTDA as the established official governing body of roller derby and has submitted a letter to the IOC endorsing this statement.
