The final 2016 International WFTDA Playoff tournament in Madison, Wisconsin will decide the final three Division 1 teams that will attend Championships along with London, Texas, and Montréal from D1 Montréal; Rose City, Denver, and Jacksonville from D1 Columbia; and Victoria, Angel City, and Rat City from D1 Vancouver. After the award ceremony on Sunday, WFTDA will also announce seeding for the Champs bracket in Portland, Oregon this November.

Get up to speed on the ten teams attending this weekend with our Madison preview, and get to know more about The Smacktivist from Ohio and how they found a non-binary space in roller derby. All the games this weekend will be played in Central Daylight Time (CDT) and the schedule below shows games in local time and Eastern European Summer Time (EEST). (Convert to your local time here.)
