Sponsorship and Fundraising

Welcome to the RCRD FunShip – we’d love it if you could help us out.

Richter City Roller Derby (RCRD) league is a community based, non-profit sports league. The majority of the costs of the local roller derby events that make up our home season can be covered through our ticket sales (thanks to our wonderful dedicated fans) and our skaters pay both yearly and monthly fees to be a part of the league.

However, there are many other costs involved in running a community sports organisation like RCRD. We need to pay for things like travel and accommodation for our away bouts, training venue costs, training equipment, uniforms and health and safety equipment and courses.

It is important to us that we keep the ticket prices and costs for our skaters within a range that is accessible to as many people as possible. So, we still need help to cover our costs.

You spin our wheels and we’ll spin yours.

RCRD has over 3670 followers on Facebook, over 3460 followers on Twitter and we also have many followers through Instagram. Up to 600 fans come to each of our home bouts and our travel teams bout both nationally and internationally to sell out crowds.

Read on for information about getting on board the Richter FunShip and help us to remain at the top of New Zealand and International Roller Derby. You can get more detail by emailing us at sponsorship.richtercity@gmail.com
