Rocket League creator Psyonix have partnered with Twitch to bring forth the all new Rocket Leagure Championship Series. Starting in March, players interested in competing in the inaugural season of the Rocket League Championship Series can register in teams of three for a chance to win the very first Rocket League championship title. The three-month season kicks off with open qualifiers and will have a total prize pool of $75,000 USD.
"From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate esport," says Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix. "Twitch and its streamers have been an instrumental part of our success since we launched last July, and that made them a perfect match for us. We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with a team that we respect as highly as we do Twitch, and we can't wait to show the world what we can do in esports together!"
“The Twitch community has collectively rallied around Rocket League to help it achieve organic success on our platform,” said Nick Allen, Director of Esports Operations, Twitch. “By working with Psyonix to build an official professional league around this grassroots phenomenon, Rocket League’s legions of players and fans can potentially turn their passion into a career.”
