The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is set to return to London, UK, for its second Major of the 2024 season. Taking place once again at the Copperbox Arena from June 20th to 23rd, this event promises thrilling matches and fierce competition.

A Historic Venue

The Copperbox Arena in London has been a staple venue for RLCS events, having hosted both the RLCS 2021-22 Spring Split Major and the Rocket League World Championship of the fifth season. Renowned for its electric atmosphere and passionate fans, the arena is the perfect setting for the high-stakes action of Rocket League esports.

The Evolution of RLCS

In January, the tournament operator BLAST inked a multi-year deal with Epic Games, the owner of Psyonix, the developer of Rocket League, to oversee the RLCS. This marked a significant shift as ESL had previously managed the league.

With this partnership, RLCS aims to elevate its competitive scene and provide players with more opportunities to showcase their skills on the global stage.

Road to the Majors

The RLCS 2024 season consists of two LAN Majors followed by a World Championship at the end of the season. Teams earn their spots in the Majors by accumulating RLCS points through regional leagues held across seven major regions worldwide. With a prize pool of $4.3M, the stakes are higher than ever, motivating teams to perform at their best.

Exciting Year for UK Esports

The return of RLCS to London is part of a larger trend of major esports events coming to the UK in 2024. From the Worlds of League of Legends to the ESL One of Dota 2 and the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2024, the UK esports scene is thriving.

This influx of international tournaments not only showcases the country’s passion for esports but also solidifies its position as a premier destination for competitive gaming events.


The RLCS’s decision to return to London underscores the city’s significance in the esports landscape and highlights the growing popularity of Rocket League esports. As the tournament draws near, fans can look forward to witnessing top-tier gameplay and memorable moments at the Copperbox Arena.
