Gates for onsite parking and tailgaters open at 5:30 PM, and cost $5 per car.

As part of their Love City Roller Derby Cares initiative, LCRD, will be hosting a non-perishable food drive to support Philabundance at the event. Bring your canned goods and show your support.

In addition to their regular season schedule, Love City hosts bi-monthly "College Nights" on Wednesdays starting Feb. 13. For $5 admission with college identification, students can get their adrenaline pumping with some hard-hitting roller derby action, including a one-hour on skates lesson, and scrimmage preview.
