The Chicago Outfit Announce a Portion of 2011 Season

You can never have too much roller derby, amiright? We here in Chicago are lucky enough to host two national-ranking derby leagues (Windy City Rollers and the Chicago Outfit) and a burgeoning junior league (the Chicago Riots). Perhaps a roller skate should be added to the Chicago flag instead of another red star. Just a thought. Chicago Outfit Roller Derby low res.jpg

Last year was an exciting season for the Outfit as they were accepted into WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association), which allows them to compete and rank on a national level. Unlike WCR, who plays both interleague games as well as competes with other teams across the nation, the Outfit only competes nationally.

While the Outfit are still working on their 2011 home schedule, they have announced their upcoming away game schedule.

March 19: The Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade (B-team) vs. Glass City Rollers of Toledo, Ohio

March 26: A double header--The Chicago Outfit Syndicate (A-team) & The Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade vs. the respective A & B teams of Bleeding Heartland of Bloomington, Indiana

April 2: The Chicago Outfit Syndicate vs. Detroit Derby Girls

April 30: The Chicago Outfit Syndicate & The Chicago Outfit Shade Brigade vs. North Star Roller Girls of Minneapolis.

The only home bout announced thus far is on May 14 at the Windy City Fieldhouse against the Tri-City Rollergirls of Ontario.
