Gothenburg Salty Seamen are Sweden's first men's roller derby team, founded in 2013 as a part of Västsvenska Roller Derby Sällskapet.
The Seamen played their first proper bout as a team at home against Rollin' Menace from Aarhus, Denmark i august 2014.
In 2015 the team stepped up their game and played five bouts and one tournament in four different countries! They are now unofficial Swedish champions after having beaten the Killer Apes from Outer Space from Norrköping at the Swedish Championship Week in Sundsvall. In 2015 they took part in the BEARDi 2015 tournament in Cannock, England and in 2016 they played the Men's European Cup 2016 in Newcastle, England.
Since the summer of 2016 the league and the team are members of the Men's Roller Derby Association! The first MRDA sanctioned bout was played at home in Gothenburg against the Nottingham Super Smash Brollers in February 2017.
