The Championships for the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) is taking place in North Richland Hills, Texas, and hosted by Texas Men’s Roller Derby. Over the 15th and 16th, ten teams will battle through the bracket to decide the 2016 Champion.

The seeding for this tournament was based off of the top ten teams in the MRDA’s fall rankings. The bracket starts out much like WFTDA’s Playoff tournaments, with last year’s Champions St. Louis GateKeepers and 3-time Champion Your Mom Men’s Roller Derby earning a first round bye, but there isn’t a full consolation bracket to place all teams. Catch up on how it all works and how each team got this far with Muckety Muck’s preview.
