ELEAGUE and Rocket League developer Psyonix have teamed up to develop a comprehensive broadcast offer that will feature sales, exclusive content and advertisement rights.
Esports platform ELEAGUE owned by Turner Sports is one of the most prominent organizations out there that supports Psyonix and their flagship title, Rocket League. The tournament host and event organizer has renegotiated its partnership with Psyonix to include exclusive broadcast rights, dedicated TV coverage, advertisement rights and more.
The partnership comes ahead of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) which is launching its Season 7 this April. The tie-up will feature exclusive content from all major competitive gigs throughout the season as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the organization and day-to-day life of competitors.

Rocket League has carved itself a status of a highly-competitive collegiate esports game. In fact, ELEAGUE and Psyonix have agreed to run the Collegiate Rocket League (CRL) Spring Invitational in North America.
Here’s what Turner Spots Chief Content Officer Craig Barry had to say on the occasion:
This is a unique, multi-faceted partnership with ELEAGUE aligning with Psyonix to create compelling experiences for fans and work collaboratively to identify new strategic business opportunities. We’re excited to partner with them as we build on the success of the previous ELEAGUE Cup: Rocket League events and launch new fan-friendly live experiences, including at this year’s Final Four in Minneapolis.
Psyonix Vice President of Publishing Jeremy Dunham also welcomed the new opportunity to pursue new horizons with ELEAGUE:
We’re excited to bring Rocket League Esports and the Rocket League Championship Series to new television and collegiate audiences. This is a significant step forward for our sport and ongoing relationship with our partners at ELEAGUE. We’re excited to see what the future will bring!
Rocket League remains one of the fastest developing esports titles of 2018 and possibly 2019. The game is heavily featured in collegiate esports thanks to its mild learning curve, plenty of wiggle room to master the game itself, and generally non-violent nature.
