The Emerald City Roller Girls (ECRG) is a roller derby league based in Eugene, Oregon. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of three teams, and a mixed team which competes against teams from other leagues.

Emerald City was founded in January 2007 by a group of women who had met through a knitting circle, and a posting on Craigslist.[1] By January 2010, the league had around 80 skaters.[2]

The Junior Gems junior roller derby league is an offshoot of Emerald City.[3]
