CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Rogue Rocket League Team and Guaranteed Rate, a leader is mortgage lending and digital financial services, today unveiled brand-new graphics for its Championship Series vehicles.
The sponsorship, first announced in Oct. 2021, marks the first time the Rogue Team has featured any brand’s logo on its Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) vehicles.
In the past, RLCS fans have been able to show support for their favorite teams by purchasing team decals. Guaranteed Rate graphics, which will be displayed on Rogue Team’s Away RLCS cars, are now available in the Rocket League online store for fans to customize their own vehicles.
“Esports is such an exciting realm for fans to interact with their favorite brands, and the Rogue Team is truly delighted to showcase Guaranteed Rate branding on our digital assets,” said Anna Baumann, EVP of Esports at ReKTGlobal.
The Rogue Team, owned by ReKTGlobal, is one of the longest-competing organizations in the RLCS. Rocket League, an award-winning game by Psyonix, brings together soccer and driving in a high-octane hybrid.
“We are excited to be part of the action as the first-ever brand featured on an RLCS vehicle,” said Guaranteed Rate Vice President of Sports Marketing and Partnerships Steve McNelley. “This innovative partnership with ReKT pairs us with a company that shares our vision for cutting-edge technology.”
Rogue Rocket League’s 2021-22 season is divided into Fall, Winter and Spring Splits, leading to the Rocket League World Championship. To learn more about Rocket League Esports, visit https://esports.rocketleague.com.
