Ally Partners With RLCS: Women's Rocket League Tournament Announced For March 2023
The Ally Women’s Open aims to advance women in esports and features a $20,000 prize pool.
The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) has partnered with financial services company Ally to create a women’s tournament for the massively popular soccer-on-wheels online multiplayer sports game Rocket League. It will be called the Ally Women’s Open and takes place this month with a $20,000 prize pool for North American and European competitors. The goal is to advance women in esports.
“Investment in all sports, including esports, has long been biased towards men’s competition. To address this inequity, we’ve made a pledge to reach equal media spend across men’s and women’s sports over the next five years because we believe there should be a level playing field for all athletes – whether on the field, the racetrack, or in gaming. This sponsorship gives us a way to engage with the fans and players of a massively popular industry, while providing increased exposure and income opportunities for the incredibly talented female competitors,” said Executive Director of Brand and Partnerships at Ally Bridget Sponsky.
This event may be watched on Rocket League’s official Twitch channel, starting at 11 A.M. EST / 8 A.M. PST on March 26.
