X Games reveals the lineup and schedule for its $75,000 Rocket League tournament
Team EnVyUs will be making their competitive Rocket League debut at the X Games tournament on July 14.
The FACEIT X Games Rocket League Invitational was announced in June, bringing together fast cars and extreme sports to fit into the X Games identity. Rocket League is the first esports title at X Games since Call of Duty was played at the event in 2014 and 2015, which makes this a milestone achievement not only for Rocket League, but for esports in general.
EnVyUs will be joined by several heavyweights of the Rocket League scene, with Gale Force, G2 Esports, NRG, and more ready to face off at the event. Competitors will battle each other from July 14 to 16 for a chance to win their share of the $75,000 prize pool.
The teams will be split into two groups, each featuring two NA teams and two EU teams. Both groups will feature best-of-five double elimination brackets, with the top two teams advancing to the best-of-seven knockout stages until a winner is determined.
FlipSid3 will face Selfless in the opening matchup on July 14 at 1:30pm ET, with all eight teams playing throughout the day. On July 15, viewers will know the four teams left standing to duke it out in the semifinals before the event concludes on July 16.
All X Games Rocket League matches will be streamed on ESPN3 and FACEIT's YouTube channel.
