The new Rocket League eSports domain details the format and schedule for the upcoming competition. Across 3-month seasons, teams of three will compete for part of a $75,000 Prize Pool.
Spanning two platforms (PS4/PC) and two regions (North America & Europe), the RLCS will open for registration on March 25th. After two separate months of Qualifiers and Group Play, top teams from both regions will be invited to the live finals to compete for the final prize pool.
The RLCS is a huge step forward for competitive Rocket League and its exciting to see a well formatted league created by Psyonix to promote their scene. Registration begins March 25th for competitors and spectators will be able to tune in to the competition on Rocket League’s official Twitch channel.
Although Rocket League recently saw a release on the Xbox platform, Xbox One will not be a component of the RLCS.
