The Border City Brawlers (BCB) is a roller derby league based in Windsor, Ontario. Founded in July, 2010, the league consists of two teams, The Border City Brawlers All Stars who compete in WFTDA sanctioned games and the Canadian Clubbers, a B level travel team.

By the start of 2012, the league had about fifty skaters, and was practicing at the Windsor Armories. However, the building was closed for renovation, forcing the training sessions to relocate.[1]

In July 2012, the league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme.[2] In addition, its newer skaters took fourth place in a tournament hosted in Toronto.[3] On December 23, 2013, Border City was made a full member in the WFTDA.[4]

The league has also received media coverage for raising money for local charities at its bouts.[5]
