Rogue Rocket League Championship Announces Groundbreaking Partnership with Guaranteed Rate
Sponsorship marks first time Rogue vehicles will feature branding
October 19, 2021 (CHICAGO) – The Rogue Rocket League Team today announces that its Championship Series vehicles will now feature graphics from Guaranteed Rate, one of the top 5 retail mortgage lenders in the United States. The move marks the first time the Rogue Team has featured any branding on its Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) vehicles.
Guaranteed Rate graphics will be displayed on Rogue Team’s Away RLCS cars. In addition, the kit will be available in the Rocket League online store for fans to customize their own vehicles.
“Sporting Guaranteed Rate branding on our digital assets in official matches is an exciting new activation for the Rocket League fanbase,” said Anna Baumann, EVP of Esports at ReKTGlobal. “We’re proud to partner with Guaranteed Rate on this first-of-its-kind milestone for the Rogue Team.”
The Rogue Team, owned by ReKTGlobal, is one of the longest-competing organizations in the RLCS. Rocket League is an award-winning game by Psyonix that brings together soccer and driving in a high-octane hybrid. Fans of the RLCS show support for their favorite teams by purchasing team decals.
“Guaranteed Rate is thrilled to enter the esports market with the Rogue Rocket League Championships,” said Guaranteed Rate Vice President of Sports Marketing and Partnerships Steve McNelley. “This groundbreaking partnership puts us in front of a new audience that is driven by digital innovation.”
Rogue Rocket League's 2021-22 season will be divided into Fall, Winter and Spring Splits, leading to the Rocket League World Championship Series. The Fall Split kicked off Oct. 15 and runs through December 12.
