The Twitch sponsored Rocket League Asian Open tournament is the first of its kind in Asia and will be held online.
Rocket League is one of the most popular game in the esports scene and it is also among the most watched games on Twitch. There is something about playing football with cars that everyone enjoys. But despite being popular throughout the world, Psyonix has mostly neglected its player base in Asia. It hasn’t held any of the qualifiers in Asia for the Rocket League Championship Series. Even the upcoming season 5 of the Rocket League Championship Series will have qualifiers held only in NA and Europe. But all that may change due to the efforts of Rocket League India community. They have put together an online tournament, the Rocket League Asian Open.
We hope you guys are HYPED for the upcoming #RLIndia 's #AsianOpen ! Make sure to register at the earliest at https://t.co/wx1dKtuhDY ! 23 Days to go!#RocketLeague #twitch #India #RocketLeagueIndia #RLIAOhttps://t.co/9DUsAmynzE

Anyone from Asian counties can sign up for the tournament. The tournament will be sponsored by Twitch and has been featured on smash.gg.
The entry for the tournament is free.
Matches will be standard 3 vs 3 and the pool stage will begin on 31st March until 1st April. Pool stage Matches will follow the Swiss Bracket pattern and the matches will be BO3. 16 teams will qualify for the main leg of the tournament.
The Main Event, which will also be held online, will take place on 7th and 8th April. 16 teams will battle it out in BO3 Double Elimination Brackets. By the final day only 8 teams will remain. They will compete against each other in a BO5 series.
Rocket League Asian Open will have a prize pool of INR 32,500 and some really cool giveaways. Moreover, the main event will also be featured on the Twitch front page.
This is a commendable effort by Rocket League India, which is one of the fastest and largest Rocket League communities in Asia. We hope Psyonix notices their efforts and finally brings official Rocket League tournaments to Asia.
