The Men’s World Cup of Roller Derby for Dummies

Like with many other major tournaments, navigating schedules, venue layouts and what’s happening on each track can be a daunting task for even the best prepared of us and this weekend’s Men’s World Cup of Roller Derby in Birmingham, England is no exception! Although I will not be attending in person, I will absolutely be watching this exciting event play out over online feed but in order to ensure I knew what the hell I was watching, I decided to compile and arrange a simplified guide to share with whoever else may be interested! Below you will find the complete schedule for Friday’s bouts, a direct link to where the live feed can be found and additional links to the tournament structure, team division pools, websites for each national team and schedules for both Saturday’s currently undetermined Knockout Bout competitors as well as the Playoff and Finals schedule for Sunday.
