British Champs Premier tier event to be live streamed

British Roller Derby Championships

The UKRDA is pleased to announce that this weekend’s British Championships Premier tier games will be streamed live online.

The weekend of derby, which is being hosted by Glasgow Roller Derby, will be free to view, and is being provided by Derby Duck Productions.

The UKRDA has been working with DDP and GRD to make the idea of showing the weekend online a reality. The link will be made available on UKRDA social media channels very soon.

Vice chairperson and head of communications, Chasing Katy, said: “This is a great opportunity for the UKRDA to help promote the sport of roller derby. The Premier tier features some of the highest ranked teams in the UK, so it’s great that we can let people around the world see the quality of roller derby we have here.

“Helping to facilitate live-streaming of games has been something the organisation has hoped to do for a while now, and we hope that it will allow people who are new to derby to have the chance to watch the sport we all love.”

The event has been made possible in part by grant funding, and by sponsorship and advertising.
