Order is set to present a Rocket League invitational event from the Australian Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, uniting Oceanic and Middle Eastern esports teams on the world stage. This event is the first-of-its-kind at the international exhibition, which is dedicated to showcasing the achievements of nations globally.
The Rocket League teams representing Oceania are Renegades & Ground Zero Gaming. They will be facing off against Middle Eastern/North African representatives, Sandrock Gaming and Falcons Esports online.
The Oceanic caster on-the-ground at the event will be Max “Formal” Vonneumann, who recently won the 2021 Commentator of the Year at the RLO Awards.
After two qualifying matches, an OCE vs. MENA final will be showcased live at the Australian Pavilion for World Expo 2020 attendees and via Order’s official Twitch channel on February 5 at 1am AEST.
Both finalists at the invitational will receive a 50/50 share of the 10,000 Dirham ($3,800 AUD) prize pool.
“As Order continues to grow and diversify operations, we’ve recognised gaming events as a key driver of the ecosystem,” said Order CEO Marc Edwards.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the Australian Pavilion and the Victorian Government to bring esports and gaming to the World Expo Dubai 2020.”
The Australian Pavilion is an event space at the World Expo 2020 dedicated to sharing advances in Aussie innovation, mobility and sustainable futures.
The Rocket League invitational event presented by Order is set to be an immersive and entertaining emblem of many of these advances, including the innovative use of technology to connect competitors globally and make events more accessible.
