Keep Banked Track Roller Derby in St. Pete! 

Deadly Rival Roller Derby is one of the best events in all of St. Petersburg. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic they have had to cancel all practices and future matches. If they aren’t able to make rent this are may lose its dedicated banked track. Here’s a message from the organizers and how you can help:

“Deadly Rival is Florida’s only Banked Track Roller Derby Team. We are a volunteer, skater-run operation that relies on our public events, merchandise sales, and donations to bring in the majority of our monthly revenue. If we are unable to make our rent, our Deadly family will be forced to shut down, move out, and find another venue.

We’re asking for your help to keep the roof over our heads while we anxiously wait to get our skaters back on the track. In order to do that, we set our donation goal to $30,000 to help us pay our rent for the next few months until we can bout again!

Your donations are greatly appreciated, we cannot thank you enough. Without support from our community, fans, and dedicated volunteers, Deadly wouldn’t exist.”
