While the tournament will be streamed on Twitch and YouTube, TBS will also air a three-part series on the ELEAGUE Cup focusing on the competitions, teams and players. The first episode of the three-part series airs on December 1st, and will be similar to their original airing of the “Road to the International” which aired prior to Dota 2’s biggest competition.

“Rocket League is such a fun and entertaining blend of creative vehicles and soccer.  With competition at its core, it’s also a popular esports title that resonates with audiences of all ages,” said Christina Alejandre, GM of ELEAGUE and VP of esports, Turner Sports.  “We’re very excited to feature this compelling game as we further expand our ELEAGUE portfolio and provide immersive content experiences across all platforms.”

The competitions will also run in accordance with other soccer competitions featuring two groups who will play in a round-robin with the top two finishers moving on to the single-elimination playoffs.
