Rocket League Esports has announced their plans for 2017. Rocket League Esports is receiving more than $2.5 million in investments and plans significant changes to their competitive ecosystem. These changes include a bigger prize pool than before which all together equals up to more than $1 million in total prize pools. Rocket League Esports also hopes to provide larger venues at competitive gaming events such as PAX, SXSW, and others.
More money also means more funding for tournaments, and Rocket League Esports will be helping fund communities that want to run their own tournaments. There will also be expanded weekly tournament support in all regions, which means that if you live somewhere that didn't have Rocket League tournaments before, they may be coming near you soon. There will also be a new series of tournaments available for the Xbox community.
For the Rocket League Esports 2017 season the Rocket League website will also be getting a new eSports hub that will allow fans to keep up with Rocket League Esports events quicker and easier than ever before.
