Editor’s note: This post was updated on Dec. 1 after Pysonix adjusted the Fall Major schedule.
The RLCS Fall Major kicks off on Dec. 8 and runs through Dec. 12 in Stockholm, Sweden. It will be the first Rocket League LAN event in two years. On Tuesday, Psyonix revealed the full schedule for the five-day event.
With sixteen teams competing, the RLCS Fall Major schedule revealed that team streams are back for the Swiss phase, just like the regional events. It was originally announced that several games would take place simultaneously, with featured games broadcasting on the main channel. All the others were to be hosted on the teams’ own Twitch channels. All the single-elimination bracket games will be broadcast on the main channels. However, after just one day and ample fan outcry over the streaming schedule, Pysonix announced that it adjusted the Fall Major schedule in order to broadcast all games.
The RLCS Fall Major Schedule
The first four matches begin at 11 a.m. ET on Dec. 8, while the pre-show begins 30 minutes prior. Every day of the RLCS Fall Major follows that same schedule, with a new round of matches expected to start on the hour. The days as a whole are approximately four to five hours long.
The Swiss stage will take three days. The top-eight single-elimination knock-out bracket games happen on Saturday, Dec. 11 and Sunday, Dec. 12.
Fans of specific teams were originally able to watch all the matches on the main channel. The community’s initial reaction to the schedule included some disappointment. Fans have looked forward to watching the first international RLCS LAN since December of 2019, so the chance of some teams not even appearing on the main stream was upsetting to them. But, with four matches happening at once, Pysonix implemented a B-stream to accommodate fans for each match.
The main Fall Major stream will be broadcast in multiple languages, with the English broadcast happening on the official RLCS Twitch and YouTube channels. Fans will also have the option to watch in Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, French, Latin American Spanish and Spanish.
