Come to our 5th annual B-Cup Tournament!
Bleeding Heartland is hosting a B-team tournament on April 18-19, 2015, and we would like to invite your league to participate. The goal of this tournament is to assemble the top surrounding WFTDA B-teams for some badass derby action. The fifth annual “B Cup” will be an eight-team tourney run according to WFTDA rules and standard practices. We will again be able to guarantee all participating leagues three games (please see the example bracket below). Previous years’ participants have included B-teams from Madison, Minnesota, Detroit, Charm City, Arch Rival, Toronto, Naptown, Nashville, Grand Raggidy, Tri-City, Cincinnati, and Fort Wayne. We are planning to submit referee evaluations at this event in an effort to recruit the best refs possible!

The arena is an excellent facility with a polished concrete floor. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about it. You may also contact the ILCs of these leagues that have played at the arena to get an outside opinion: Windy City, Little Steel, Hammer City, Circle City Derby Girls, Race City Rebels, and Nashville.
