Eleague unveils Rocket League tournament

"Eleague has been a leader in bringing esports to new audiences with its groundbreaking broadcasts", said Rocket League developer Psyonix's esports manager, Josh Watson.

Since its creation in 2016 by Turner and IMG, ELEAGUE has expanded quickly in terms of the number of games it has featured in its unique take on esports.

Turner and IMG have added yet another title to their growing ELEAGUE esports lineup in the form of the somewhat odd but incredibly popular sports-action title: Rocket League. Eastern Time. That tournament will continue across streaming platforms throughout that weekend.

The eight teams will be split into two groups, and there will be a round robin with the top two finishers from each group proceeding to the single elimination playoff.

The ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League, created in partnership with independent video game developer and publisher PSYONIX, will begin Friday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m. ET with a live invitational tournament on Twitch and YouTube. $150,000 in prize money will be distributed amongst the top-ranking teams, but it's not yet clear how that money will be divided.

A feature series will also be produced as a kind of documentary throughout the competition. The series premieres Dec. 1 at 10pm ET/PT on TBS, with the second and third episodes airing Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, both at 10pm ET/PT. And, it seems TBS agrees, as it's signed on to showcase a three-part series on the biggest teams from the Rocket League ELEAGUE Cup.

The competition was created in partnership with developer Psyonix, and will invite the world's eight best teams to compete, with two four-team groups being whittle down to the best two, who will advance to a single-elimination playoff, with $150,000 Dollars of prize money at stake.

While Rocket League certainly doesn't need the exposure to make them game profitable - the game has reportedly sold around 11 million copies and has generated $110 million in sales - this move may help the game's competitive scene gain some necessary exposure.
