Team France Men's Roller Derby sticker

Description (Brief):

Team France Men's Roller Derby sticker. As in skateboarding, stickers are an inexpensive and productive way to spread the roller derby culture throughout the world.

Description (Brief)

Modern roller derby began in 2001 after four teams were formed and founded under the Bad Girls Good Women Productions name. In 2002, the Texas Rollergirls were formed from 65 members of the first BGGW teams after a disagreement over management practices caused a permanent split. BGGW took the remaining 15 skaters and became the TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls forming a banked track league. The flat track derby uses a not-for-profit organizational model with skaters running the leagues and using their own money to buy rink time, produce tournaments, print programs and putting any money earned back into the organization. The men's leagues were formed in 2007 and follow the same rules as WFTDA.
