Rat City Returns to KeyArena on January 19th!The wait is almost over, as on January 19th, the Rat City Rollergirls will return to the track in KeyArena in their season opener!
The evening starts off getting right into season play, as the Throttle Rockets look to blast their way past the ladies in blue of the Sockit Wenches. Both of these teams are looking to start of the year making a statement about their intentions for the championship, but only one will be able to do it for this bout!
The second bout of the night will feature something new for the 2013 season, as we will be welcoming a visiting team for January, February, March, and April action! This month, the Derby Liberation Front will be showing their stuff as they take on a batch of frisky felines from the north, the Faster Pussycats of Vancouver, B.C.’s Terminal City Rollergirls.
This season will also bring with it some exciting new action, as this is the Rat City debut for the new edition of the Official WFTDA Rules! The most noteworthy changes to watch for include the change to a single start whistle, allowing blockers and jammers to go at the same time, and the simplification of the penalty system – minor penalties are no more, with some upgraded to a major, and others no longer treated as a penalty.
It’s going to be a great season – don’t miss any of it!
