Let’sPlay.Live, Australasia’s premier esports tournament platform and broadcaster, are excited to announce the LPL Pro Rocket League Oceanic Championship!
The tournament, sponsored by Psyonix, serves as the official pathway for Oceanic players into Season 8 Rocket League World Championship. A prize pool of $50,000 USD is available for top-placing teams, as well as $5,500 USD in player accolades to recognise outstanding players across the season.
Open Qualifiers will run over two days: 14th and 15th September 2019 to determine the current best six teams in the region. These six teams will join the remaining two auto-qualified Oceanic teams from Rocket League’s previous Season 7 World Championship. Seven weeks of round-robin league play every Sunday will result in a live Regional Playoff at LPL Studios in Auckland on November 17th, to determine the Oceanic Champion.
Our champion and runner-up team will head to the Season 8 Rocket League World Championship between December 13th to 15th 2019 to represent the OCE region on the global stage!
Oceanic players currently residing in New Zealand, Australia, South-East Asia and the Pacific Islands who are over 15 years of age are eligible to form a team and enter the Open Qualifiers.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Rocket League players in our region, and I look forward to seeing the best of the best compete each week!” says LPL Head of Platform and Leagues, Amy Potter. “We’re incredibly excited to be working with Psyonix to introduce Rocket League to our platform and community, and to be offering the biggest prize pool in LetsPlay.Live’s history to date.”
