The New York Shock Exchange (NYSE) is a men's roller derby league, based in New York City. The league consists of two teams, which bout against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded by Gotham Girls Roller Derby referee Jonathan R in 2006. He organised a bout against from Pioneer Valley Roller Derby and quickly gathered a team which won 109-51 in April 2007.[1] Later in the year, both leagues were founder members of the Men's Derby Coalition (MDC).[2] They went on to win their first 23 bouts, including the 2010 MDC Championships, before finally succumbing to the St Louis GateKeepers at the Spring Roll tournament in early 2011.[3] In late 2010, National Public Radio described the Shock Exchange squad as "quite possibly the strongest men's roller derby team in the country".[4]

During 2011, the Shock Exchange organised its bouts as doubleheaders with the women's league, the Long Island Roller Rebels, in Bethpage, New York.[1] The Men's Derby Coalition became the Men's Roller Derby Association (MRDA), and Shock Exchange hosted the 2011 MRDA Championships at the venue,[3][5] successfully defending their title.[6]
