During the Rocket League Champion series Season X, Wolves reveals that their esports team will participate, making history.
This complements their already comprehensive portfolio of esport teams, including the Player Unknown’s Battlefields (PUGB), Identity V, FIFA 21, FIFA Online 4, and Pop Kart Racing, which already have the squad of the first team of the Premier League to join the ranks in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS).
The Rocket League is a mega-popular video game which includes the first release of rocket-powered football cars in 2015. But in recent years, the game has developed into an esport itself with Rocket League players from the very best pros vying for large prize pools. In September 2020, the game was played free of charge.
In addition to the professional sporting competition organized at the college level by the Rocket Ligue Championship Series (RLCS), which will be presented by the Wolves of Psyonix, a San Diego based video game corporation that has created the Rocket League.
In the RLCS X Winter Split, the newly formed Midlands will compete with a team of three teams.
Rix Ronday left Libertas, Captain of the team, to join Luis Puente Pena from Edelweiss, and Ole Van Doorn from Barrage. More information about the squad can be found on the Website of Wolves.
In a tweet, Wolves CEO Russell Jones says: ‘we are very pleased to announce the launch of a team from the Wolves Esports Rocket League.
“Today Rocket League is played by millions of people worldwide who feel like the perfect next step into esports considering its resemblances with football.
“Gaming and esports remain a key part of our brand development strategy, and it is a further step forward in our quest to create stories beyond football and to broaden the appeal of the Wolves brand across out the world to sign young and ambitious players to represent our Rocket League Esports squad.
“We’ve been scouting the last six months and are happy to welcome Rix, Luis, and Ole, who will be Wolves Esports for the rest of current season X of the RLCS. We will provide the team with our full support during the Winter Split competition.
