The yearly Rocket League World Championships hold a huge number of professional teams. We will talk about all you need to know about it.

RLCS: Rocket League World Championships

The RLCS 2021-22 Winter Split Majors are just around the corner and teams will soon be battling it out for a spot in the Championships this year. Here are all the details to keep an eye on.

The Rocket League Championship Series is entering its next round with the Winter Split Major, and it’s even bringing fans back to the event in California. In fact, it’s the first time fans will be back at an RLCS event since Pandemic 2020 began. Already since then, on platforms such as, you can support your favourite competitors. The last time it was played in front of spectators was at the Season 8 Rocket League World Championship – and that was in December 2019. Since then, players from all over the world are excited for the Championships to return.

Reason for the hype

There are now countless Rocket League tournaments around the world, both large and small, where teams and players can compete. However, if there is one major focal point of the Rocket League eSports scene, it is the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS for short). The RLCS has been played twice a year since spring 2016. The tournament is organised by developer Psyonix.

The RLCS is an international tournament series in which the best teams in the world compete in regional championships before the ultimate Rocket League champion is decided in the World Championship. The regional championships take place in Europe, South and North America, and Oceania. This mode is thus similar to the LCS in the MOBA title League of Legends.

RLCS Winter Major with $300,000 prize pool

However, the group stage will kick off without fans. There will be 16 teams divided into four groups of four teams. In the well-known Best of Five, the first race will be for the group victory, which will lead to the Upper Bracket. Second and third place will go to the Lower Bracket.

After that, it’s on to the playoffs. In front of spectators, the organisations will play in best of seven games for the tournament title. In addition to the important RLCS Circuit Ranking Points, which lead to participation in the RLCS World Championship, a respectable amount of prize money will be distributed. First place will receive 90,000 US dollars, second place (60,000 US dollars) and third place (30,000 US dollars) will also get a large piece of the prize pool. The total prize pool is around 300,000 US dollars.


The Rocket League World Championship hosts incredibly strong teams, all of which have been able to prove themselves through their performances so far. Numerous individual players are world-renowned for their incredible talent. It is not for nothing that those players have formed teams to now play for the title. Their individual skills, which they have demonstrated in each tournament, show that no single player – and therefore no single game – should be underestimated. We are very excited to see who will win the title and the glorious prize money in the end.
