With the first weekend of the Universal Open Rocket League Regionals in the books, it’s time to find the next four teams who will punch their ticket to the Grand Finals in Santa Ana, California! This weekend's events will be livestreamed on NBCSports.com, the NBC Sports app, with the final hour of each Regional televised on all eight NBC Sports Regional Networks. The entire Universal Open Rocket League will also be available on Twitch, where viewers will have a chance to earn Fan Rewards; so be sure to link your Twitch account before watching! With some of the best players in the world facing off this weekend, let's take a look at what's to come.

The Midwest Regional

Kicking off the action this weekend, we head to the Windy City to see who will represent the Midwest in the Grand Finals. One duo everyone will be watching is Renegade's star Dappur and NRG's playmaker GarrettG playing under the team name DapG; this 2v2 powerhouse is one of the favorites heading into the weekend. Another dynamic duo to watch out for, Karma and Pluto, were just signed by Splyce. Known for their 2v2 synergy, they’re looking to challenge Dappur and GarrettG for the 2v2 Regional Championship in Chicago.
