While Johnnyboi’s Fusion tournament is still ongoing, announcements for future events were sorely lacking. What are the next few months going to give us? Well, now we know.

No less than ten community organisers get a chance to put on a show in June and July. Rocket League’s developer Psyonix is partnering with these organisers and providing them with the prize pools. Whether it’s community figures like Dazerin, Lawler and Lethamyr or brands like Rocket Street, APL Esports and Beyond the Summit – they all made a name for themselves by organising tournaments in the past. Now they get to do that with Psyonix’ help. 
The prize pools of these tournaments add up to over $300,000 with RLO Grand Slam ($46,000), The Kickoff ($45,500), the Summer Shuffle ($45,000), the Summer Grand Prix (€40,000) and LATAM Championship ($40,000) having the largest individual prize pools. 
 

With these tournaments, Psyonix shows support for many regions. EU and NA are still the regions with the most competition, but the others are not forgotten. Oceania gets the RLO Grand Slam, South America has the LATAM Championships, and even some regions outside of the RLCS get their own tournament: The Kickoff. The Kickoff consists of two separate tournaments, one for the Middle East and one for Asia.
