2019 marks Gotham Girls Roller Derby’s fifteenth season of hard hits, fast-paced skating, and advancing the sport of roller derby on a local, national, and international level. Founded in 2003, Gotham held our first exhibition game in 2004. Since then, Gotham has won five Women’s Flat Track Derby Association international championships and medalled in every championship tournament for the past nine years. Currently ranked number four in the world, Gotham’s skaters have also represented countries such as the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Ireland, Australia, Korea, Sweden, Portugal, Romania, Israel, and Team Indigenous in the Roller Derby World Cup. Off the track, we are proud to be founding members of the WFTDA and to continue furthering the sport’s values of inclusion and diversity.

Our fifteenth season officially kicks off on March 9, when the Bronx Gridlock will take on the Queens of Pain at John Jay College. Get your tickets here and join us to celebrate throughout our fifteenth season!
