Rocket League is the third and final game announced for the Gfinity Challenger Series, joining Counter-Strike:Global Offensive and Street Fighter V.

The Gfinity Challenger Series is an open competitive series designed to give all players a chance to become pros—competitors are given the opportunity to build a profile, climb rankings, and compete. Individual cups start on March 27, with the tournament itself starting on April 3.

The goal for those competing in the Challenger Series is to make it to the elite draft—the premier of Gfinity competition—which is invite only. If you are part of the top 30 ranked players from the Challenger Series, you’ll be put into a draft for each Elite Series season and have the opportunity to be drafted to a pro team to play at the Gfinity Arena in London. After all the teams have been finalized, they will then compete over 10 weeks in the Gfinity Arena for a chance at the £100,000 ($125,000) prize pool.

Rocket League was released in July 2015 to critical acclaim, with an esports following slowly growing over time. Season three of the Rocket League Championship series kicked off on March 18 and is set to conclude April 23, before the North American and European Championships commence sometime in May. The World Championship will begin in June, where FlipSid3 Tactics will be looking to hopefully defend their title from last year.
