British Roller Derby Championships

2017 Tiers and Divisions!

We’re excited to announce the Tiers and Divisions for 2017!

We welcome some returning teams and bid a hopefully temporary adieu to some rebuilding teams. We try to follow promotion and relegation as decided this year as closely as possible, but will occasionally move teams to replace gaps from teams not returning this year.

We are excited to expand the Champs to a wider range of B teams after last year’s successful integration of Brawl Saints. We appreciate that some elite teams need to split their focus on international WFTDA and MRDA games while still competing in Champs. As a result, in the Women’s tournament, while Leagues are only allowed to enter one team in Champs, certain leagues can submit a B team instead of their A team, for any leagues who are listed in the top 100 global WFTDA teams and whose B teams are in the top 100 Flat Track Stats European rankings of Quarter 3 this year. In this way, we hope to continue to grow British Roller Derby, while still making Tiers and Divisions competitive and evenly matched (as much as we can).

Additionally, we are trialling our first B team in the Men’s Tournament, Mild Discomfort. As with the Women’s tournament last year, we shall see if the tournament can sustain a B team before deciding on widening this offer in future years.

Based on feedback from the Leagues, we have also revised our policy on forfeits. In 2016, many Leagues felt that the 300-0 penalty for forfeiting leagues, while an effective penalty for those forfeiting, inadvertently over rewarded the Leagues they were facing on that day. As such, for 2017, if a League decides to forfeit by either not rostering a team, or not attending the game on the scheduled date or time, then the opposing League will be awarded a win with the score of 200 – 0 points. This is to prevent Leagues forfeiting in a way that may give them a tactical advantage. If a League forfeits during a game, the opposing League will be awarded a 200 – 0 win or the current score in that game, whichever points difference is greater. If a League forfeits 2 games, they will receive the above points differentiation result for each game forfeited. They will also receive the loss of 1 Tournament point. If a League forfeits 3 games, they will be disqualified from the tournament and all games, played or unplayed, will be recorded as a 200-0 loss.

The Leagues are now confirming fixture dates and we will post these as soon as confirmations are through. In the mean time, here are the 2017 Tiers and Divisions!!!
