You’ve seen them hit, juke, fall, and fly, but they’ve never moved like this before. Roller Derby hits the city starting February 6th, at Buffalo RiverWorks.

Friday, February 6th  the Queen City Roller Girls will make their ‘Icebreaker’ debut within Buffalo city limits at RiverWorks. After 8 successful seasons in North Tonawanda, Queen City Roller Girls plan to bring their brand of excitement south to Buffalo RiverWorks. A new multi-purpose venue located at 359 Ganson St. RiverWorks will host the Queen City Roller Girls on a one of kind, specially purposed roller derby track.

The second of the ‘Icebreaker’ games will be held Friday, Feb 13, and act as a preview of what will be in store when the schedule kicks off in full force beginning Friday, February 27th.

The Feb. 6th game will be a rematch of the 2014 Championship – as the 3-time defending champion Nickel City Knockouts take on the Suicidal Saucies. Feb. 13th matches the Devil Dollies and the Alley Kats.
