Viva La Revolucion!
Assassination City Roller Derby (ACRD) is a flat-track roller derby league based in Dallas, Texas. Founded in 2005, the league currently consists of four home teams, and two travel teams. The home teams compete against each other in intraleague play during the official home season, which typically runs from February to September. The league's All-Star Skaters make up the "Travel Team". This group of skaters compete at the interleague level, similar to the structure of play used by Major League Baseball. The games or bouts played at this level affect the league's overall ranking among the top teams in the WFTDA.
Founded in 2005, ACRD has become active not only as competitors in the roller derby community, but as participants in the local community.
The 2011 season was moved to the Fair Park Coliseum, where it attracted 2,000 fans to its first bout. At the close of the 2013 season Assassination City went back to its roller rink roots at Broadway Skateland, where they played to a packed house and a sold out crowd for the 2014 season opener, held February 8, 2014.
