Update April 6:

The Rocket League ICE Championship has been cancelled due to "insurmountable logistical challenges". Clarion's ICE London Expo is still going ahead.

Original article:

Hot off the Rocket League Championship Winter Major, some of Europe's top Rocket League teams will be converging on London to take part in the Rocket League ICE Championship.

Boasting a £25,000 prize pool, the invitational will feature Dignitas, SMPR, 00 Nation, and Team Queso who went all the way to the final in Los Angeles, narrowly losing out to G2 to be crowned champions, although will be playing with their substitute Noah "Noah" Hinder in place of Axel "Vatira."

The tournament, organised by Clarion Events and produced by Allied Esports, will take place from April 12-14 at ExCeL London as part of the ICE London Expo and for many of the players will be their first-ever LAN event having been starved of such in-person events due to the pandemic.

Competitors will come from the HyperX Esports Truck, which will itself be surrounded by "cutting-edge holograms to deliver a next gen experience for fans in the arena."

Commentary will be provided by Mike "Gregan" Ellis and John "JohnnyBoi_i" MacDonald, two familiar faces in the world of Rocket League esports. All the action will be streamed live on the Allied Esports Twitch channel.

The full schedule for the event can be found below.
