Act fast to get your tickets for the Roller Derby World Cup, which takes place this coming week. The competition is four days of fast-paced contact action featuring 38 women’s teams from all corners of the globe. It is taking over all of EventCity in Trafford, where matches will be played on four tracks from morning until night. Hosting the Cup is something of a coup for our fair city, as this is the first time the event has been held outside of North America. The UK team came third, then second at the previous tournaments, and will be hoping that this time the home advantage helps them climb to the top spot. If you can’t make it to the venue to cheer on our brave girls, then the entire event will be live streamed online for a small fee. The event is hosted by local league, the Rainy City Roller Derby.

Thu 1 Feb – Sun 4 Feb, EventCity, Phoenix Way, off Barton Dock Road, Trafford, Manchester, M4 7TB, 10am – 9pm, £21 (1 day)/ £88 (4-day),

Thu 1 Feb - Sun 4 Feb
