RLCS European Open Regional: How to watch, teams, schedule, format, prize pool

What you need to know about the RLCS European Open Regional, from the schedule to the prize pool, how to watch all the action and the teams competing.
The Rocket League Championship Series is back on, and Europe can’t wait to take it to the pitch after a four-month drought.

The old continent will be kicking off their season this weekend as they try to keep up with the spicy pace North America brought to the viewers in a Twitter beef grand finals.

If that isn’t enough pressure, now rocketeers are playing for a real chance at a LAN, unlike their past campaign that ended anticlimactically -- so every single series, goal and circuit point matters.

So, without further ado, from money to who, here’s everything you need to know about the region's first event, the European Open of the 2021-22 season.
