Game developer Psyonix has announced the schedule for its upcoming Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) off-season.

The off-season will see the return of the Collegiate Rocket League, as well as more than 10 other community-organised tournaments in all major RLCS regions.

The 2022-2023 season of the RLCS, Rocket League’s top-tier esports series, concluded in August with Team Vitality beating the title holders Team BDS, breaking the game’s viewership record by around 100,000 viewers.

With the main season concluded, Psyonix has announced a series of off-season tournaments to keep the action going until the next RLCS season, which has now been confirmed will take place in 2024.

In a blog post, the organisers detailed that a large number of tournaments hosted by community organisations and members are set to take place, with each tournament being fully open to any interested players. The tournaments will feature several game modes, ranging from one-on-one matchups to standard three-versus-three games. Some events are also set to include unique twists on the standard Rocket League formula.

Probably the most high-profile off-season tournament is the Collegiate Rocket League, the official Psyonix esports league for colleges in North America, first founded in 2017. The CRL will feature a total of 32 teams for its 2023 Fall Semester, and take place between October and November.

Raidiant Esports will organise a new edition of the Star Chasers Showdown, a women’s tournament in North America and Europe, with a $30,000 (£24,230) prize pool. The Asia Pro League will host a series of 15 tournaments across APAC, MENA and SSA regions which will conclude in one major $50,000 (£40,400) tournament. In South America, the Rocket Street Latam Championship will take place to decide the new LATAM champion in Rocket League.

More regional tournaments will also be announced during the off-season.
