It's finally here. The Rocket League World Championship is making its triumphant return and touching down at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas this August. You can grab your tickets (once they're available for purchase) to the first World Championship in nearly three years beginning on June 3 at 10 a.m. PT (5 p.m. UTC)!
There's a bunch to go over, so let's dive right in!
The Biggest World Championship Ever
The World Championship for the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) 2021-22 Season will be the biggest RLCS live event yet. Previously, the World Championship was a three-day event, but now it's a 10-day event split into two distinct phases beginning August 4.
The first phase is the four-day World Championship Wildcard where 16 teams will clash to see which eight teams will survive the Swiss Format and move on to the next phase. That next phase is the World Championship Main Event, where teams will compete in two eight-team, Double-Elimination Groups, and the top four teams from each group will compete in a high-stakes, Single-Elimination Bracket. The team that conquers that bracket will be crowned Rocket League World Champions!
Attending As a Fan
If you plan on attending the World Championship in person, there are multiple types of tickets you can buy. Attendance for the World Championship Wildcard and the first three days of the World Championship Main Event will be limited to 1,000 attendees each day. The final three days of the World Championship Main Event will then move to the main stage in the Dickies Arena where up to 13,000 fans can join us for the weekend!
