Psyonix And Twitch Team Up For Rocket League Championship Series

Competitive Rocket League players get ready! Psyonix announced that they will be teaming up with Twitch for the Rocket League Championship Series. The Championship Series will be a three month long season played across the Playstation 4 and PC. Starting with open qualifying matches and concluding with a live international final for the season between the highest ranked teams. The competition will have a total prize pool of $75,000.

The Director of Esports Operations at Twitch, Nick Allen, said this about Rocket League and the partnership with Psyonix, “the Twitch community has collectively rallied around Rocket League to help it achieve organic success on our platform. 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.” Jeremy Dunham, the Vice President at Psyonix also said, “From the moment we hit the pitch last July, we knew that Rocket League was a legitimate eSport. 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!”

Anyone interested in signing up can do so from March 25th and the sign ups will be in teams of 3. Rocket League is available now for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC although the Championship series will only be played on the PC and Playstation 4.
