The Sulphur City Steam Rollers' Motley Crew will be facing off against members of the original New Zealand roller derby league: the Pirate City Rollers, as their Broadside Brawlers venture south in the hopes of crushing our rockers on home ground!

Half-time entertainment will include a performance by members of the Rotorua Roller Skating Club, and kids in the crowd in costume will be invited down to the Track for Treats!

Prizes will also be given to the Best Dressed Adult and Child Halloween Costumes, as well as those with the Best Supporter Signs for their favourite team or skaters.

The Sulphur City Steam Rollers will be selling team merchandise and raffle tickets, offering you a chance to win a horrifically frightening visit to Spookers in Auckland!

In every one of the Sulphur City Steam Rollers' events to date, tickets have sold out up to a week prior to the event. So the organisers recommend that you purchase your tickets well in advance. We're not even kidding!

In the game of roller derby, which is full contact and has been likened to ‘rugby on skates’, players skate around an oval track in a pack made up of eight skaters, four from each team, who hold the position of blockers. Blockers must remain within a certain distance from each other at all times. Also on the track are jammers, one from each team who are the point scorers. It is the jammers’ role to attempt to ‘break’ through the pack and score points for each opposition player they pass.

Following an extensive rule set, modern roller derby also includes a large group of officials who keep the players in line and track game statistics. There are up to seven referees required during a game, each with individual responsibilities. Up to 14 Non-skating Officials are also required, and generally include newer skaters, or in Steam Roller terminology, Groupies.

Doors open at 6pm with game formalities commencing at 6:45pm. Food, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.

Doors open: 6:00pm
Game start: 6:45pm
Est. end time: 8:45pm
