Elmhurst Park District is offering an opportunity for players of all ages to participate in a 3v3 or 1v1 esports Rocket League* competitions this spring in partnership with GGLeagues, a recreational esports league based in Chicago.

 

GGLeagues is an esports management platform that is focused on making gaming a social experience for players. Due to COVID-19, GGLeagues is supporting the esports community by offering free full service 6-week intramural leagues for all interested schools and organizations.

Rocket League is a video soccer game held in a virtual stadium featuring rocket-powered cars playing in a challenging, fast-paced soccer contest with elements of a demolition derby.  Participants in the Park District league may form a team or register solo for some friendly online competition from home. Don't have enough for a league- these leagues will run at the same time as other park districts across Illinois so your league can combine with other park districts if you don't have enough teams to run a full league completely on your own! Five weeks of play will conclude with playoffs in week six.

*Players must own Rocket League and have the ability to play to online matches on any approved platform: PC (Steam), XBox (Xbox Live), Playstation (Playstation Plus), and Nintendo Switch (Nintendo Switch Online).
