VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Put on your driving gloves, top off the tank, and get ready to experience the utter joy of Rocket League. TGS Esports Inc. ("TGS" or the "Company") (TSXV: TGS) has teamed up with Crimson Wings to host the 3rd season of the Women's Car Ball Championship, the world's premier Rocket League tournament explicitly held for women.
"The WCBC is an amazing showcase of women's esports talent, and we're helping to make it bigger and more exciting than ever," said Spiro Khouri, founder and CEO of TGS Esports. "This is going to be an exciting partnership - tons of action, tons of fun, and some of the best casters and hosts around."
On November 12, the WCBC officially announced Season 3 which will kick off December 12. This season features a partnership with Rocket League developer Psyonix who is already showing support by sharing the news of Season 3 among their network.
The 2020 WCBC features divisions in Europe and North America, pitting teams of three in a round-robin style tournament starting in December. The total prize pool for this season is $10,000. Jeff "Hunted" Lowe will host the event. Casters include Deep "RJsaurus" Nadar, Andrew "Squidd" Riffe, Layla "TamashiiKanjou" Abbott, and more.
"In its first year of existence, WCBC has given women a solid footing in the world of competitive rocket league, and some tier-one esports organizations use it to scout talent and plan for their future," said Chase "Kilk" Mitchell, founder and CEO of Crimson Wings Entertainment. "This season, we're better and stronger than ever, and we're so excited."
As part of the kick off for the upcoming 3rd season TGS and Crimson Wings will be holding two open tournaments for any female Rocket League teams. November 28th will be open to any teams in Europe while December 5th will be for North American based teams. Both open events will have a cash prize.
