Here are the twenty-four teams that are going to the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) 2021-2022 World Championship.

The RLCS World Championship is coming soon! With the end of Spring Major, the points are locked and now we know who is going to attend the main RLCS event of the season. This is the biggest RLCS tournament yet, with twenty-four teams from 8 regions and a $2,085,000 USD prize pool.

The Worlds will start less than a month away, starting from August 4 – 14. It will take place in Fort Worth, United States at the Dickies Arena. The event is divided into two main stages: the World Championship Main Event and the World Championship Wildcard.

Seeded into the RLCS World Championship Main Event

Eight teams have secured themselves a spot in the Main Event. These slots are reserved for the top best regions of the season, with them getting an auto-qualification directly to the Main Event. Every Major, the teams not only won points for themselves, but also for their region. There are 3 European teams, 3 North American teams, one South American team, and one Middle Eastern and African Team.

Moist Esports

The winner of the last Spring Major will go to the World Championship as a favorite. They have been quite consistent in the regionals with three regional wins. We will be seeing this roster on the main stage:

  • Joe “Joyo” Young
  • Axel “vatira” Touret
  • Finlay “rise.” Ferguson
  • Noah “noah” Hinder (Coach)

G2 Esports

Although they exit early in the Spring Major, no one can deny their achievements of winning the Winter Major and claiming four regional wins this season. We will see this roster on the main stage:

  • Jacob “JKnaps” Knapman
  • Reed “Chicago” Wilen
  • Massimo “Atomic” Franceschi
  • Matthew “Satthew” Ackermann (Coach)

FaZe Clan

Standing in second place in the North America Rankings, they are always a challenge with their Faze and Furious gameplay, and having one (or three!) of the best mechanical players in the world doesn’t hurt. We will see them making names for themselves with this roster:

  • Jason “Firstkiller” Corral
  • Austin “AYYJAYY” Aebi
  • Caden “Sypical” Pellegrin
  • Alexandre “AxB” Bellemare (Coach)

Team BDS

With four Regional wins, the champion of the Fall Major is no normal team. Their performance in the Spring Major was a disappointment but they promised to come back stronger. Here is their roster:

  • Evan “M0nkey M00n” Rogez
  • Alex “Extra” Paoli
  • Enzo “Seikoo” Grondein
  • Marc “MaRc_By_8.” Domingo (Substitute)
  • Théo “Mew” Ponzoni (Coach)

Team Falcons

Let’s be honest: it is long overdue to see another region in the top 8 teams, specifically the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). They were always in the scene prior to Rocket League’s region expansions and they finally get a chance to prove that they are as good as the top teams in the world. Team Falcons had delivered an excellent performance in the Spring Major. They were already a scary predator in the MENA region, grabbing every Regional win. They will be playing with the following roster:

  • Ahmad “Ahmad” Abdullah
  • Khalid “oKhaliD” Qasim
  • Mohammed “trk511” Alotaibi

The General NRG

A line-up of Worlds champion is a scary sight. They won the last RLCS World Championship before the world shut down due to COVID-19. With two regional wins this season, they are definitely looking to be the first org to win the championship twice. Here is their roster:

  • Garrett “GarrettG” Gordon
  • Justin “jstn.” Morales
  • Mariano “SquishyMuffinz” Arruda
  • Wyatt “musty” (Substitute)
  • Emiliano “Sizz” Benny (Coach)

Endpoint CeX

They had their ups and downs this season, with two regional wins during the fall season. They managed to stay at the top of the European Rankings and they are ready to steal the show. Endpoint CeX will be performing with this roster:

  • Lucas “RelatingWave” Rose
  • Otto “Metsanauris” Kaipiainen
  • Archie “archie” Pickthall (Loan)
  • Aron “Eclipse” Jones (Coach)

FURIA Esports

The hope and pride of the South American region have given everything they got to prove they belong in the top teams. They dominated the SAM Region with 6 regional wins and we are excited to see their next milestone. FURIA Esports will be going to the main stage with this roster:

  • Caio “CaioTG1” Vinicius
  • Gabriel “card” Vieira Cardoso
  • Yan “yanxnz” Xisto Nolasco
  • Wesley “Kairos” Silva
  • Mateus “STL” Santos

Seeded into the RLCS World Championship Wildcard

Sixteen teams will have to go through a wildcard event with a Swiss System format. Only eight teams will go through to the main event. The slot allocation is fixed for every region.

North America is holding tight to their Worlds dominance

These powerful teams had not managed to clinch the auto-qualification slot for the Worlds and now we will see bloodshed.

Spacestation Gaming is always there at the top, just needing to find the right tweaks to secure the victory. OpTic Gaming backed by Turbopolsa, the 4-times Worlds champion as their coach, will surely have a few tricks up their sleeves.

APAC’s beginning spark in the RLCS scene

Gaimin Gladiators and Tokyo Very Esports will be representing the APAC region. They have both been powerful forces in their respective region, with eight and six regional wins respectively.
