All season the hard-hitting action will take place at the UIC Pavilion, located in downtown Chicago at 525 S. Racine Ave., and easily accessible from I-290, I-94, and the Blue Line. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at ticketmaster.com and the UIC Pavilion Box Office (312-413-5740).
The Windy City Rollers, Chicago’s #1 roller derby league, continues its ninth home season on Saturday May 4, 2013, at UIC Pavilion, 532 S. Racine Ave.
In 2012, the Manic Attackers won the Ivy King Cup after knocking down the 2010 and 2011 undefeated champions, The Fury. However, this season, The Fury is undefeated again this year and has high hopes for a perfect season and a Championship title.
Throughout the 2013 home season, the Windy City Rollers home teams have partnered with various charities each team has chosen to represent. The charity partner for this bout is CircEsteem. Since 2001, CircEsteem’s mission has been to unite youth from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and help them build self-esteem and mutual respect through the practice of circus arts. This charity partner is represented by the Manic Attackers.
The first bout kicks off at 6 p.m. as the Hell’s Belles will face last year’s champs, the Manic Attackers. Directly following, the Double Crosser’ will take on The Fury in the second bout of the evening.
