Psyonix has announced the first ever Rocket League Championship Series.

After teasing plans to bring the game into the eSports arena the official league has been announced. In a statement, Psyonix Vice President Jeremy Dunham 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!”

The Championship Series will kick off it’s first season this month and is boasting a prize of $75,000. The league will be available on PC and PlayStation 4 and will include the standard 3v3 mode with each season lasting three months. The season includes open qualifiers where teams will battle head to head on the field until the last two are standing where they were face off for the ultimate prize.

Currently the league will not be available on Xbox One but the platform is not completely out of the picture as it will be discussed at a later time. You can find more information on the official Rocket League eSports website.
