Psyonix announced today that Collegiate Rocket League (CRL) will soon be back in action, with a new Spring 2020 season set to begin in the coming weeks. As with previous seasons, $75,000 in scholarship prizing is available to participating teams.

The Top 4 teams each from the Eastern and Western Conferences will earn an automatic spot in league play, with another eight teams from each region set to come from open qualifiers. Those qualifiers take place very soon, on January 17th and 24th, with sign-ups open now.

The University of Akron Zips will be one of those returning teams in the mix, and after a 20-0 season, dominant grand finals win, and back-to-back CRL championships in 2019, they’re looking to continue their winning streak and keep claiming titles. As Buzz “Buzz” Krager told Rocketeers following their November win, “As many as we can get, we’re gonna take all of them.”

Collegiate Rocket League has evolved over the past few seasons, with much tighter competition and higher-skilled players that could be banging on the door of the Rocket League Rival Series very soon. Read more about that evolution and why CRL and RLCS caster Joey “Jorby” Ahrens “can’t shill for CRL hard enough.”
