Rocket League Championship Series Season 3 World Championship Announcement

We are excited to announce the RLCS Season 3 World Championship will take place from June 2nd-4th at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Taking place over an unprecedented three days, the Season 3 World Championship will be our biggest event to date, starting with the inclusion of two teams from our brand-new RLCS Oceania region. A total of ten teams will be battling for the lion’s share of our largest-ever $300,000 total prize pool.

Tickets for the RLCS Season 3 World Championship will be going on sale the week of April 15 and additional details will be announced then.

We’re just over the halfway point in League Play of RLCS Season 3 and with only 2 weeks of matches left, there’s still much to be sorted out in North America and Europe. This weekend, however, we’re briefly setting aside the main competition and throwing some mayhem into the mix!

Midseason Mayhem is back for a 2nd season, but this time around we’ve made a few adjustments including the addition of the popular new mode Dropshot! Just like last season, YOU will be able to vote on twitch.tv/RocketLeague and directly influence the maps and mutators that the pros will play on. These teams are going to have to be highly versatile, overcome a variety of obstacles, and outmaneuver their opponents if they want to walk away as winners and snag a large chunk of the $10,000 prize pool. We covered Midseason Mayhem in full detail earlier today on RLCS Overtime, so if you missed that be sure to check out the VOD.
