Pirate City Rollers - The Grudge Match

Pirate City Rollers presents The Grudge Match


 Saturday 18th June

Auckland City YMCA (Corner of Pitt Street & Grays Avenue)

Mascara Massacre versus Dead Wreckoning

In The Art of War, Sun Tzu said, “If you know your enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.”

Pirate City Rollers’ two oldest teams know each other well; they’ve come head-to-head time and time again since 2007. Crowd favourite Mascara Massacre has come tantalisingly close many times, only to have their efforts snatched in the last seconds by three-time season champions Dead Wreckoning. Now, on June 18 you can see these old foes battle it out in the re-match of the year.

Mascara Massacre has been strengthened and revitalised this year, with a crop of new skaters joining the ranks, next to a number of fighting fit veterans who are ready to prove they can take down the women in black once and for all.

Meanwhile, fear-inducing Dead Wreckoning has held the top-of-the-table position since 2009 and is the current holder of the Black Dahlia Cup, Pirate City Rollers’ coveted home season prize. Dead Wreckoning’s veterans are a mix of powerhouse blockers and agile jammers, but they too have a number of up-and-coming athletes with big skates to fill.

Tickets to the re-match of the year are strictly limited. Pirate City Rollers’ last bout sold out, leaving many punters disappointed. Book now to avoid being left out in the cold!

Tickets available from Under the Radar now, or at Real Groovy from 2 June.
