RLCS X Fall Split: Schedule, format, teams, prize pool and how to watch

One year-long competition with three splits and a World Championship means Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) Season X is the biggest to date.

Anticipation for the return of RLCS has never been higher. With a revamped format, which will give players and fans even more opportunity to enjoy their favourite esport, and with the game set to go free-to-play all the signs point to this season becoming the season for Rocket League to truly announce itself among the worlds foremost esports.

Everything has changed, gone are the two seasons plus their regional and world championships, and in its place a year-long split format with over $4M on the line.

There will be more teams involved, more games to watch, and certainly more eyes watching them. New teams will be joining the fray including David Beckham's backed Guild Esports and, for the first team ever, esport royalty Team Liquid will be entering the scene.

The format of RLCS X is also different from what has come before, the season will be split in three, starting with the Fall Split, then Winter, followed by Spring before the World Championship set to be held in May 2021.

Each Split will have its own format, with the first up, Fall, which is itself split into three parts, using a Swiss Format to whittle down the teams in Stage 1 and 2 before the end-of-Split Playoffs where the top 8 teams will compete for the lion share of the $100,00 prize pool as well as RLCS Circuit Ranking points, these points will help earn them a place at the Major and ultimately the World Championship.

Getting your head around it all may not be the easiest thing, even for Rocket League esport veterans, so we have brought together all the info you need allowing you to kick back, relax, and enjoy what is set to be a transformative season.
