UniRocketeers are teaming up once again with Psyonix and eFuse for the return of Europe’s biggest university esports competition.
The UniRocketeers Circuit 2022-23 will feature a series of Rocket League events taking place throughout the Winter and Spring semesters. Hundreds of universities from all over Europe will be able to compete in a tournament eco-system containing more than 25,000€ of prizing.
The UniRocketeers Circuit will welcome players of all skill levels – with teams playing in mass-participation National Leagues to earn qualification for exclusive European events. The six most successful teams from the UniRocketeers Circuit will get the chance to represent their university on the global stage at Psyonix’s CRL World Championship in Summer 2023!
You can watch the UniRocketeers Circuit on the UniRocketeers Twitch channel where CRL item drops will be enabled. UniRocketeers will broadcast the EU Last Chance Qualifier for the CRL World Championship on the Official Rocket League Twitch channel!
To participate you must be a full-time student at an eligible institution. A full breakdown of the rules and tournament structure can be found here.

The UniRocketeers Circuit will offer students a clear path of progression, from the National level through the European level all the way to the CRL World Championship.
The core of the UniRocketeers Circuit will be the National Leagues, run by our partner organisations across Europe. Last year, 542 teams from 289 universities competed across all of our member countries.
For the Winter Season, we have partnered with 6 different organisations to run National Leagues. We have also created the UR Wildcard League, so that universities outside of those countries still have a way to compete.
Teams will need to play in these competitions to be able to qualify for UniRocketeers’ European events.
- Belgium – Belgian Student League
- Germany – Uniliga Germany
- Ireland – Nativz Collegiate
- Netherlands – Dutch Student League
- Nordics – Uniliga Nordics
- United Kingdom – National Student Esports
- Rest of Europe* – UR Wildcard League
*Universities from Russia are not permitted to compete in this year’s UniRocketeers Circuit.
We are looking to partner with more organisations to increase the number of National Leagues available in the Spring Season.
