Another international addition for MVC IV!

Following up on the announcement earlier this week that Tyne & Fear Roller Derby would be coming to the Mohawk Valley Cup IV all the way from the UK to make it an international tournament, The Quadfathers are pleased to announce the additional early acceptance of Chinook City Roller Derby League's Glenmore Reservoir Dogs coming all the way from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

MVC IV is shaping up to be pretty exciting with at least three countries represented in MRDA sanctioned play. We will be announcing 4 more teams in early January that will be joining the tournament field.

Mohawk Valley Cup IV: Another international affair!

Happy Holidays everyone.
We are excited to announce that the 4th annual Mohawk Valley Cup
will be held August 8-9 2015 at the same venue (JFK Arena, 500 W Embargo St, Rome NY 13440). You can get updates and let us know you are coming on the Facebook event page here.
Another exciting piece of news to share: While you can expect to see the full team lineups announced in early 2015, we made the decision to offer early acceptance to the men of Tyne and Fear Roller Derby from Walker, Newcastle, England so that they may raise funds and plan games with plenty of time. Tyne & Fear will join the defending MVC champions, the New York Shock Exchange, tournament hosts, the Quadfathers, and five yet to be announced teams for the 2015 tournament.
Look out soon for another potential (and very exciting) early acceptance for another international league, and we will update as soon as we have the remaining slots confirmed.
Can't wait to see you all in August!

Once again this year, the official event photographers of Mohawk Valley Cup will be Sean Hale (Hale Yeah), and Walter Romero (Hispanic Attack). The official event videographer will once again be Chuck Campbell.  Only these official folks will be treated as event staff will access to more of the venue. But, with admission we welcome and invite others who wish to take photos or video of the event to do so (anyone wishing to bring in pro-grade equipment)

All photographers and videographers (including assistants, crew, helpers, etc) planning to record images or videos of MVC 2014 should use the link below to download, print, and sign the Photography and Video Release document.

We truly value the amazing folks in the derby community who go above and beyond to create amazing works of art at our events. Please be assured that our intention with this release is not to restrict you, but simply to protect ourselves legally speaking.
That said, if you have any questions about the meaning or intent behind the wording, please email us at and we will do our best to answer ASAP.

MVC 2014: The Afterparty

This year's Mohawk Valley Cup afterparty on Sunday 8/17 will be held at the official tournament hotel, the Wingate By Wyndham.

Its a relatively easy drive from the arena to the hotel, with ample parking
Directions HERE

This is a BYOB event. Well, its actually 'bring your own liquids' in general, including non-alcoholic stuff. Guests of the tournament are encouraged to stop at one of our fine local groceries or specialty stores and stock up on tasty beverages.
We will have some food available, but it will likely go fast. If you plan to take your time getting to the afterparty, you may want to think about grabbing food on the way. There is also made to order options at the hotel bar/restaurant.

For those who enjoy specialty beers, Marcy Discount Beverage is just down the road towards Utica (maybe 12-15 min from venue) and has a vast selection to choose from. They're open Mon-Sat 9-9 and Sun 12-5, so plan accordingly before you make the trip.

If anyone wants to go bigger, McCraith Beverages in Yorkville (~20 min from venue) will sell kegs and rent taps.
