Announcing the CCA Open: Fall 2021 Presented by Psyonix

CRL Fall 2021 is shaping up to be the most competitive season yet! We know that there are more than 24 schools that are able to compete at the top of the collegiate landscape so it is our honor to announce the CCA Open Presented by Psyonix! Four open events take place over the course of October and November for both Eastern and Western Conference teams to decide the top teams that just missed the cut for league play, with $20,000 in prizing up for grabs! These top teams may just get a chance to compete in future Collegiate Rocket League events later down the road.

Sign-ups for the CCA Open: Fall 2021 events are now live on smash.gg! Grab your team, sign up, and get ready to hit the pitch and represent your school! In addition, don’t forget to join up with the official CRL Discord server to stay in the know about all things CRL.
