ELEAGUE Is Beginning a Rocket League Tournament in DecemberImages via Turner Sports Games News Rocket League
We’ve all enjoyed Psyonix’s absurdly fun car soccer game Rocket League, and now we’ll finally get an opportunity to watch some high-level play, courtesy of ELEAGUE. The ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League will bring “the world’s best eight teams” in a high-stakes round robin tournament, with a grand prize of $150,000.
The teams will compete in the ELEAGUE Arena at Turner Studios in Atlanta, and gameplay will air on TBS, Twitch and YouTube. Additionally, TBS will air a three-part documentary following the teams and players participating in the competition. The ELEAGUE Cup will begin on Dec. 1 with a live invitational streaming on Twitch and YouTube, and continue on Dec. 2-3. The first part of the aforementioned TBS feature will air on Dec. 1, with the second and third parts airing on Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, respectively.
In the meanwhile, followers of e-sports can continue watching the Injustice 2 World Championship and look forward to a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Championship in January, both from ELEAGUE.
