The new organizations in the Rocket League Esports Shop
Originally, the Rocket League Esports Shop featured a handful of organizations which were added and removed once in a blue moon. But with the new update, Psyonix has provided organizations with the tools to create their own decals. This makes for a much faster turnaround on decals and gives organizations the freedom to design something themselves.
Because of this, 34 teams will have cosmetics in the shop at the beginning of the season. More can, and will, be added over the course of the Rocket League Championship Series 2021-22 season as new organizations take the plunge into Rocket League esports.
Away kits were already announced with the RLCS 2021-22 season reveal, but were only given a teaser in the latest trailer. The alternate versions of the decals will become available at a later date. The decals will go for 300 credits, or approximately $3, and will be available for the Octane, Dominus and Fennec battle-cars.
The teams that are included in the Rocket League Esports Shop are as follows:
- Vodafone Giants
- Guild Esports
- Karmine Corp
- SMPR Esports
- SK Gaming
- Team BDS
- Team Liquid
- Team Queso
- Team Singularity
- Team Vitality
- Evil Geniuses (pending roster reveal)
- FaZe Clan
- G2 Esports
- Ghost Gaming
- Pittsburgh Knights
- Shopify Rebellion
- SpaceStation Gaming
- Susquehanna Soniqs
- Torrent (likely Alpine’s rebranding)
- True Neutral (moved from SAM)
- Ground Zero Gaming
- PWR (PWR is set to make its debut in Rocket League with an announcement on Oct. 8.)
The RLCS 2021-22 season is set to begin on Oct. 15 with the Fall Split Regional 1 event.
