RLCS World Championship 2022: Dates And Facts
The RLCS World Championship is the esports highlight in Rocket League and by far the biggest tournament of the season. Here, the best teams of the past year battle it out in the arena for fame, honor, prize money and the right to call themselves World Champion.
This year's prize pool is over $2 million – the 2022 RLCS World Championship winner will go home with a staggering $600,000 in total. All matches at the biggest tournament of the year will be best of 7, so we're in for a packed few days of Rocket League action.
The Rocket League World Championship 2022 will take place from August 4th to 14th, 2022. During these 10 tournament days, all of the games are played in two separate blocks. In between, there will be a small break of two to three days so that the participants have some time to recover. So if you don't want to miss the most important games, you should probably try to keep your weekend schedule a little lighter.
Rocket League World Championship: Tournament Schedule
The schedule on the official Rocket League World Championship website is really, really long and not that enjoyable to read. We'll try to break down the entire process briefly, concisely, clearly and yet completely for you.
Basically, all you need to know is that the RLCS World Championship 2022 is divided into two pieces. The Wildcard phase ran from August 4th to 7th, in which 16 teams competed against each other for the eight remaining spots in the main event.
The Main Event started on August 9th – that's the actual final tournament of the World Championship. As with the Wildcard round, the first match always starts at 11 a.m. CT (9 a.m. PT/4 p.m. UTC), while the last game of the day should take place at around 2 p.m. CT (12 p.m. PT/7 p.m. UTC). The only difference to the Wildcard phase is that the last day with quarterfinals, semifinals and finals should be a bit longer.
If they can stick to the current schedule of the RLCS, then the grand finale will conclude the Rocket League World Championship 2022 on August 14th at 5 p.m. CT (3 p.m. PT/10 p.m. UTC). However, since the pairings have not yet been determined and individual matches take different lengths of time, there may be minor delays here.
