EROC 2015 Recap


This year’s EROC was four whole days of the development of our beloved roller derby, with an emphasis on the sport in Europe. 64 leagues from 18 countries came together to discuss the the future of European derby and its organization.

Instead of focusing on bringing each country’s leagues together, this year’s aim was to bring European derby together as a whole. One decisive result from the conference was the widespread agreement of moving in the direction of a European umbrella organization. This type of organization would be able to lay the groundwork for roller derby all over Europe, as well as further strengthening the ability for intercontinental play. Read more →
