If you plan to attend, we recommend purchasing your tickets at least 2 weeks before the game. Online ticketing is available until the game sells out or until midnight the night before the event, whichever occurs first. Don’t miss out, get your tickets early!
LOCATION: All Ohio Roller Derby home games are held in the Ohio Building at the Ohio Expo Center, 717 E 17th Avenue.
DOORS: Doors open at 4:00 p.m. The game begins at 5 p.m. The second game begins at approximately 7 p.m. Die-hard derby fanatics will stay for the whole night. If you’re new and just want to get your feet wet, you may choose to watch only one game!
PARKING: The Expo Center charges $5 per vehicle for parking; carpooling is strongly encouraged. The venue is a short walk from the OSU campus area and COTA bus routes stop right outside the Expo Center.
CONCESSIONS: Concessions are available on-site. Please do not bring outside food or drinks into the venue. The Expo Center sells standard fairground fare and beverages, including beer.
WHAT’S HAPPENING: Roller derby is a full-contact sport and the action on the track is fast, so sometimes things can get confusing! Check out our Roller Derby 101 page for more info. On game day, we’ll keep you informed with information in your program and helpful commentary from our knowledgeable announcers – or feel free to ask a passing derby skater to help you figure out what just happened!
FAN ACCESS: One of the best things about roller derby is how accessible the athletes are – roller derby players really love talking to our fans! Please feel free to flag us down when you see us roll past. We’ll sign autographs and pose for photos – we will entertain most reasonable requests! We strive to make our games kid-friendly, and we love to see your little skater tots cheering in the stands! Children under 8 are always admitted free.
