This Major will be an historic event, as it will be the first time since the pandemic began in early 2020 that we will see the return of in-person attending fans at a live RLCS event. In fact, this will be the first time since the Season 8 Rocket League World Championship – in December 2019 – that we will see the return of fans to the theatre.
