Coming Summer of 2014 ... A FAN BASED LEAGUE  that will create a true fan experience that will showcase roller hockey as affordable PRO sports entertainment.

The MLRH Super League will be like all true pro sports leagues - a league with a product capable of, once again, attracting paying fans to roller hockey.

The MLRH Pro Tour (November through March) will continue as a prize money series.  However, at MLRH, we believe the present system of "PRO" roller hockey cannot be marketed as a professional league.  There is little incentive for owners to invest or sponsor teams as, under the present system, their teams never play home games.  While Roller Hockey TV has attracted over 750,000 viewers over the past year, both fans and advertisers find the present system baffling.  A league must have true "home and home" schedules to be taken seriously by mainstream media and develop a paying fan base.

The MLRH Super League will debut with an eight-game "demo"  season with a $1,000 per game salary cap and a $5,000 prize.
THE PLAYERS
Super league rosters will be a mix of minor league
pro ice players from the ECHL, Central League,
Southern Professional and Federal league players plus college ice players plus "pure" roller hockey players with MLRH experience .
WHERE WE WILL PLAY
Super League teams will play in affordable rinks and small arenas that are brightly lite, attractive
facilities capable of providing an attractive environment  for pro roller hockey.  In certain
cases, outdoor facilities will be considered that
can provide an outdoor festival atmosphere.
THE SUPER LEAGUE
GAME EXPERIENCE
If the Super League is to succeed, it will require
