Rocket League World Cup details

The first of its kind event doesn’t have too many details available just yet but what we do know is that we can expect a new format, new teams and that more is coming later this year.

The 30 second video posted to X confirmed that 16 different countries are going to take part. These countries are going to be selected based on the number of representatives from each country at previous RLCS event. We can certainly hazard a guess at some countries, the USA, Canada, France, Australia, Brazil and the UK should be able to field rosters at a moment’s notice.

But with only 12 countries represented at the RLCS London Major, and with only 7 of those countries sending 3 players or more, there are still plenty of opportunities for new talent from other countries to enter the pro scene.

FIFAe x Rocket League

FIFAe has been running tournaments for FIFA (shockingly) for many years. Adding Rocket League to their roster of events seems like a natural step, especially since all RLCS events are splashed across the homepage of the site.

“The FIFAe World Cup featuring Rocket League marks a new era for FIFAe, providing a groundbreaking platform for FIFA’s member associations to compete on one of the most relevant esports titles. This milestone partnership highlights our commitment to evolve our football esports ecosystem and continue to build the biggest stages for all communities to fame their game.” – Christian Volk, Director eFootball and Gaming at FIFA

Interestingly, the statement on their website seems to confirm that players who aren’t affiliated with any pro orgs will still have the opportunity to qualify and take part. They encourage players to sign up on FIFA.gg to find out how to qualify in their country.
