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 →

The second Blood & Thunder Roller Derby World Cup took place from the 4th till the 7th of December, 2014, in Dallas, Texas. The number of teams had grown from the thirteen national teams that participated in the last World Cup held in 2011 in Toronto, Canada, to include representing rosters from 30 different countries.
Well-established nations like the USA, Australia and Sweden were joined by Columbia, Japan, Greece and Italy this year.
Bear City Roller Derby’s successful year didn’t stop with the World Cup either. Three European national teams featured players from BCRD: Team Italy with Mad Meid, Ouch Capone and Sixxi Blitz; Team Germany with Donner Doro, Hanna Hellfire, Heavy Rotation, Lizzy Slaughter, Master Blaster, Paulina Pocket, and Titty Twister; and Team France with Kozmic Bruise.
To end the Roller derby season, Harbor Girls’ Sea Gals (Hamburg B-team) hosted a Nikolaus-themed bout. The fans was dressed accordingly in Santa-accessories and the gym hall in St. Pauli was totally packed. It did not take long until the hamburg fans’ notorious glitter rain was pouring down over the audience. But Berlin Bombshells C-team did bring a treat of their own during team introduction: a super talented Bear mascot, whose cartwheels and dance moves woke up the fully seated arena.
