The Roller Derby World Cup 2018 is set to be the biggest single-tier Tournament in Roller Derby history.
Roller Derby has continually spread over the lifetime of the Roller Derby World Cup, and so has the number of nations attending the Cup itself. From 2011’s modest haul of 13 nations, to the 30 teams at the 2014 World Cup…
… and now, for February 2018, we have accepted
to come to the EventCity venue in Trafford, Greater Manchester to compete in the third Roller Derby World Cup.
All but one of the 30 teams from previous years are returning, to be joined by teams representing: Korea, the Philippines, Iceland, Russia, Iran, Romania, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Costa Rica, and the Indigenous peoples of the Americas.
In collaboration with our hosts, Rainy City Roller Derby, and with the Roller Derby Nations Committee, we are excited to be able to present an event showing just how international Roller Derby is as a sport.
Ticket sales are already open (and the Early Bird tickets have already sold out)!
The list of teams confirmed as attending is (new teams in bold):
Aotearoa (from New Zealand)
IRN (from Iran)
ZA (from South Africa)

The Roller Derby World Cup Committee is pleased to be able to reveal that our Tournament Head Announcer for the Roller Derby World Cup 2018 is Val Capone.
With 11 years’ experience announcing, as well as 13 years as a skater, and 8 as a coach, Val Capone is more than qualified to lead Team Announcer. Val was Broadcast Head Announcer for the first World Cup in 2011, and announced at the 2014 event as well. She is also currently Assistant Coach for the (USARS) Team USA Men’s Roller Derby.
Val also coordinates well with the other tournament officials, as she shares a matching tattoo with Tournament Head Referee Rawk!
In combination with this, we are also opening submissions for Announcers for the Roller Derby World Cup.
The Roller Derby World Cup will be held from 1 February to 4 February 2018 in Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, hosted by Rainy City Roller Derby.
[Applicants note: while you can state a preference for stream or house work, our default will be to alternate announcers between the two spots.]
Applications for Announcer roles will close on the 13th June.
