Chicas Furiosa Goes For Threepeat! Ivy King Cup Defense At Stake With Season Premiere At Hand

Fasten your seat belts, little babies.

This could be a rough ride.

"I want that Cup."

The Windy City Rollers, Chicago's all-female flat-track roller derby league, officially kicks off its eighth home season on Saturday, February 11 at the UIC Pavilion.

In 2011, The Fury skated undefeated to their second consecutive WCR championship, winning the Ivy King Cup. (The ring acceptance ceremony was held at Reggie's Rock Club.) The slate is clean in 2012 as all four Windy City Rollers home teams gear up to claim this year's championship.

Fury co-captain Kola Loka has high hopes for another championship win in 2012:

"The Fury had back to back amazing seasons, culminating in the second successive and third time winning the Ivy King Cup. We owe that to the excellent leadership of Ol Drrrty Go-Go and Tori Adore. This year, we have a very new team, having lost six veteran blockers, and are focusing on building the new generation of Chicas Furiosas. We plan on trying out some new strategies, but focusing on good ole hard hitting, fast skating, and fun to watch derby!"

Bout one kicks off at 6 p.m. as the the Hell's Belles will take on last year's champs, The Fury. Directly following, the Manic Attackers will face the Double Crossers in the second bout of the evening.

The 2012 home team season continues through June, ending with the home team championship bout, the Ivy King Cup. The Windy City All-Stars have their first home bout on March 31, which will give audiences a taste of what the North Central Region's #1 team can do. They return to the UIC Pavilion in July to take on some of the nation's top competitors.

The Windy City Rollers are back for another thrilling year of hard-hitting action at UIC Pavilion, located in downtown Chicago at 525 S. Racine Ave., and easily accessible from I-290, I-94, and the Blue Line. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the action starts at 6 p.m.. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at ticketmaster.com and the UIC Pavilion Box Office (312-413-5740).
