Independent video game developer and publisher, Psyonix, and Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, are bringing the Rocket League Championship Series back for a second season.
Players interested in competing can register in teams of three for a chance to win the Rocket League® championship title. The three-month season kicks off with a brand new format and a total prize pool of over $250,000 USD.
“RLCS Season 2 is going to be awesome,” says Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Psyonix. “We learned a lot from Season 1 and so did our players, and we can’t wait to apply that knowledge to the next competition. Our newer, more simplified format and bigger prize pools are a reflection of what our viewers, pros, and community have been asking for, and we’re incredibly proud to give it to them.”

Nearly 2.3 million unique viewers watched official league broadcasts over the course of the season, with more than one million viewers tuning in for the weekend-longInternational Finals, where number-four-ranked North American team, iBUYPOWER Cosmic, won the first-ever Rocket League ® world championship.
