The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is bigger than ever this year! If you missed the news last month, we added South America (SAM) as an official RLCS region starting with Season 7. As part of that initiative, we have teamed up with Rocket Street to unveil the Grand Series, a brand-new tournament showcasing South America’s greatest Rocket League talent and giving SAM players a shot at qualifying for the Season 7 World Championship.

How Can I Qualify?

The Grand Series will use an open qualifier and play-in format to fill the eight available slots within the league. This means that any eligible players from within the region can grab a couple of teammates and compete for their chance at a spot in the Grand Series.

The Open Qualifiers will feature a double-elimination bracket format, with the top four teams from each qualifier moving on to a Play-In stage to find out who’ll take part in the Grand Series!

Open Qualifier Schedule

  • Open Qualifier #1: March 2, 2:00 p.m. BRT

  • Open Qualifier #2: March 9, 2:00 p.m. BRT

  • Open Qualifier #3: March 16, 2:00 p.m. BRT

  • Open Qualifier #4: March 23, 2:00 p.m. BRT

Play-In Schedule

  • Play-In Day #1: March 30, 2:00 p.m. BRT

  • Play-In Day #2: March 31, 2:00 p.m. BRT

In the Play-In stage, teams will first be split into four groups of four and compete in a round robin stage. Teams that take first in their group will auto-qualify for the Grand Series, while teams that come in fourth will be eliminated from contention. Teams that take second and third in their group will be re-seeded for day two and will then compete in a double-elimination bracket to determine the final four teams that qualify for the Grand Series!

What’s the Grand Series Schedule Look Like?
