Introducing the Nordic Championship

Rocket League Nordic Championship is coming 11th to 13th of September! 16 teams will play in the tournament, four from each hosting Nordic country – Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The winner of the national league of the four hosting countries has a direct invite to the Nordic Championship group stage.

Iceland will also be introduced to the tournament, Icelandic teams can join in the Danish qualifier, as Iceland does not have their own qualifier for this first edition of the Nordic Championship. For future championships, we’ll be looking to extend the qualifiers, with Iceland having their own national qualifier as well.

National open qualifiers are held August 23rd and August 28th. All qualifiers are 3v3 double-elimination. Teams can play in both qualifiers. On August 23rd, two teams per qualifier will make it into the Nordic Championship. On August 28th, one team per qualifier will secure the final spots in the tournament.

The players permitted to play are country specific, meaning that each country has their own qualifiers where only the citizens of the specific country can play. This is to emphasize the “national team” atmosphere we’re looking for in the Nordic Championship, playing on the brotherhood and natural rivalry that exists between the Nordic countries.
