Rocket League Championship Series Split 1 Qualifiers Open

Last week it was announced that Sub-Saharan Africa has a route to the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) wildcard division. It has now been announced that the route to the wildcard division has started, with the Split 1 qualifying series.

The “Fall Split” [we don’t have the heart to point out its Spring outside of the northern hemisphere] will feature three Regional events. Each boasts a prize pool of $15,000 (around R220,000).

Registrations are open and free to players of Rocket League on all platforms.
