With a new year comes a brand new season of flat track roller derby madness in Kansas City, and this Saturday night, the Kansas City Roller Warriors light the fuse on what is guaranteed to be an explosive year at historic Memorial Hall.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m., and the first bout of 2019 begins promptly at 6:00.
Kicking things off, the 2018 Rink of Fire Champions, the Knockouts, face their perennial rivals, the Black Eye Susans. If history is any indication, fans at Memorial are in for a treat as these two talented squads face off in what is traditionally one of the fiercest match-ups of the season. It’s a great way to kick off the new year.
Immediately following, the dreaded Dreadnought Dorothys take on the Victory Vixens in another classic match-up that promises a memorable start to the new year.
LA’s Cuisine will be serving up some of the finest barbecue in Kansas City — including vegan and gluten-free options — and there will also be $2 beers available until 6:00.
Adult tickets are $15 at the door, and kiddos ages 6-12 are just $10 each. The afterparty will be held at the 403 Club just minutes from Memorial Hall immediately following the bouts.
We will, of course, be trackside for Saturday night’s event, and whether you’re able to attend or not, you can get scores and highlights throughout the evening on our Twitter page, no account necessary, and you can also see exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos on our Instagram page.
We hope to see everyone at Memorial Hall this Saturday night as the Kansas City Roller Warriors kick off their 2019 season!
