FoCo Girls Gone Derby, Northern Colorado’s foremost roller derby league, will bout
Saturday, June 13
at Rollerland Skate Center, 324 S. Link Lane, Fort Collins
Doors open at 6 p.m., bout begins at 7

FoCo Girls Gone Derby’s last bout on May 9 was a close one, with your two hometown teams, Chanel Cartel and Death Row Dolls, duking it out for domination. Death Row took the lead early and didn’t let up, with Chanel Cartel hot on their heels the entire bout. In the end, the Death Row Dolls pulled ahead with a 115-102 win.

That’s how we roll at FoCo. Your hometown teams are evenly matched in skill and strength, but each has its unique assets and cast of characters. Each bout presents a new line-up as veteran skaters are benched with injuries and new recruits join the ranks. Strategy is constantly evolving as the teams adapt new tactics to pummel the opponent. No plays are ever duplicated, and no two bouts are the same. All of this makes every match a must-see and entertaining event for our fans.

For your added enjoyment, FCGGD features halftime entertainment and beer for sale at every bout. Fort Collins band The Piggies will rock the June 13 bout. And fans are welcome to join us at the Aggie Theater for our afterparty on June 13 with bands The Photo Atlas and Ten Timers.
