The organizers of the Rocket League Championship Series 2021-22 - Winter Split Major have announced that the Sandrock Gaming team will miss the championship. Players are reportedly having trouble getting permission to enter the United States, forcing the team to pull out of the tournament.
Ahead of the Rocket League Championship Series 2021-22 - Winter Split Major, the Psyonix team has been working to secure all the documents and visas needed for the teams to travel to Los Angeles. Due to personal reasons and complications related to the visa process, Sandrock Gaming will unfortunately not be able to come to the United States. We set aside as much time as possible to resolve the situation, but ultimately things got out of our control.
This means that 15 teams will take part in the championship. There will be no changes to the competition format and schedule. Group D will feature three teams. In addition, we will award Sandrock Gaming $3,000 and 120 ranking points.
This is a very difficult situation and we share the frustration of Sandrock Gaming and our fans. We are incredibly proud of the team's success this season and look forward to welcoming Sandrock Gaming to RLCS tournaments in the future.
Recall that Sandrock Gaming was supposed to play in Group D, where Dignitas, Spacestation Gaming and Pioneers are also represented.
Rocket League Championship Series 2021-22 - Winter Split Major will be held from March 23 to March 27 in Los Angeles. Sixteen teams from all over the world will compete for a prize pool of $300,000, as well as the rating points needed to qualify for the RLCS 2021-22 World Championship.
Sandrock Gaming's current Rocket League roster is as follows:
- Senzo (reserve player).
- mits (coach).
