Rocket League Announces Esports Partnership with Ford

Rocket League developer Psyonix has announced this Wednesday that they will be partnering up with the American car manufacturer Ford for a new set of esports events and a limited-time bundle.

This bundle will feature a bunch of customizable assets from Ford and, perhaps most significantly, the addition of the most sold truck in the United States to the roster of vehicles in Rocket League: the Ford F-150.

You will be able to acquire these new items from February 20 through February 28, with the full bundle being priced at 1500 credits.

But that isn’t all, Ford will also be leading a number of sponsorships throughout the Rocket League esports scene, as a presenting sponsor for the RLCS X Winter Majors circuit, starting with this weekend’s South American Regional Major.

The developers have also announced the introduction of the Rocket League + Ford Invitational, a two-day event that will pit eight of the best Rocket League freestylers, as they flip, boost and fly under the guise of a panel of judges.

The Invitational will take place on February 24 and February 28 and be broadcasted on Twitch, just ahead of the North American Major Grand Finals.

While these eight participants are yet to be unveiled, the prize pool is already known: an actual 2021 Ford F-150 truck.
