The General NRG finds its stride in 2021 and secures a spot in Fall Major Championship

In April 2021 The General partnered with NRG, one of the world’s largest premier esports teams, marking the first time a brand has had naming rights to an esports team in the North American Rocket League. Season XI of Rocket League Champion Series (RLCS) officially kicked off on October 8 and is slated to be the biggest and most exciting season in Rocket League history. Some of the major developments to this year’s series include a large prize pool, an updated format, and additional regions that haven’t received as much exposure in the past— proving that Rocket League is truly becoming a global esport.

What happened?

The General NRG Rocket League Team came into this season wanting to continue their successes from last season, which consisted of winning multiple championships — and that’s exactly how they kicked this season off.

The General NRG defeated G2 ESports and was crowned the RLCS Regional #2 champions after the three-day tournament that took place between October 29-31. By securing this win, The General NRG became the first team to qualify for the Fall Major Championship in Stockholm, which will take place from December 8-12.

A ring ceremony to showcase the team players and their hard work to achieve a first-place win in Season X recently took place. The rings, which included the RLCS logo, year of the win, and The General NRG logo, were presented to each player by family members and loved ones and serve to commemorate the impressive and memorable Season X win. Snippets of the feel-good ceremony can be seen HERE.
