The Rat City Rollergirls have changed their approach to roller derby, and with it, their league structure, to create a better fan experience.

Just in time for Season 11, the Rat City home teams — Grave Danger, Sockit Wenches, Derby Liberation Front and Throttle Rockets—will rekindle old rivalries and bring fresh faces to the track for home team season while All-Star players prepare for their own separate season this summer. The home team season will run from Jan. to April, and fans can start purchasing season tickets on Black Friday and individual tickets on Dec. 15.

Rat City also revamped bout production, ultimately deciding to host mid-season bouts at The Rat’s Nest, which is located at 19022 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133. At The Rat’s Nest, fans can get closer to the action while enjoying local bands, food trucks, a fan zone, and new opportunities to interact with some of their favorite skaters in the stands.

For fans who love their derby at KeyArena, a “Three at the Key” package will be available starting Dec. 1, which includes tickets to the home team opener, home team championships, as well as the July 11 All-Star bout where the Rat City All-Stars will play the second best team in the world, the Rose City Wheels of Justice.

The home team season will begin Jan. 10 at the KeyArena with a double header—Sockit Wenches vs. Grave Danger and Derby Liberation Front vs. Throttle Rockets.

The mid-season bouts at The Rat’s Nest will be held on Feb. 7, Feb. 21, March 7, March 28 and April 11, with the final championship bout on April 25 at the KeyArena.

Derby Liberation Front, the winner of Season 10 home team championships, will battle all season long to maintain their title.

The Rat City Rollergirls (RCRG) is Seattle’s premiere all-female, flat-track roller derby league. RCRG is composed of about 80 active skaters and many more retired skaters who are still involved. The skaters are divided among four home teams, the All-Stars and Rat Lab. It is Rat City’s mission to maintain a competitive athletic program, promote the sport of roller derby, provide quality sports entertainment for our fans, and make a positive impact in our community.
