WCR fans have twice as many reasons to cheer at the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup in Toronto! Team USA and Team Argentina both have WCR All-Star representation; Varla Vendetta will be skating with Team USA and Sargentina will be skating with Team Argentina.
The first Roller Derby World Cup, organized by Blood & Thunder magazine, will bring 13 teams of amateur skaters from around the world to compete for their respective nations. The inaugural 2011 event is being hosted by Toronto Roller Derby, and is being held December 1 through 4, at The Bunker at Downsview Park in Toronto, Canada.

Argentina (with WCRs own Sargentina) vies against Ireland at 5:20PM Central, followed by USA (with WCRs own Varla Vendetta) against New Zealand. Concluding the day’s game play at 8pm Central, Team USA battles itself in the USA vs USA expo bout.
