There’s a new major Rocket League tournament on the horizon! The tech giant Acer has announced the EMEA Predator League 2022, a new Rocket League competition open to all EMEA players, regardless of skill level.

The Predator League offers a prize pool that includes cash and computer hardware totaling €85,000. Various countries from the EMEA region will participate in the competition, with teams being able to register now.

Acer Predator League format

The Acer EMEA Predator League will be held in three phases, starting with the national qualifiers and ending with the EMEA international finals on November 20. During these three months, teams of three can compete to become regional Rocket League champions in a structure that is quite simple.

In the first phase, the teams compete against each other in the national qualifying rounds, with each country having to go through two qualifying rounds. The top two finishers in each round then advance to the national finals. Finally, the winners of the final round will get a chance to compete against the winners from other countries in the international EMEA final.

The Middle East domestic finals are scheduled for November 12, while the UK domestic finals will take place a day later on November 13. You can catch the grand finale a week later on November 20 on PredatorGaming’s Twitch channel. All other information on teams, schedule, and broadcast can be found on the official Predator League website.

Countries allowed to participate in the event

For a team to be eligible to participate in the Acer EMEA Predator League, two of the three players in a team must be citizens of the respective country. The countries that can participate include the Benelux region (i.e. Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg), the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland), and the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden). Italy, Portugal, France, Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Spain, Hungary, and the United Kingdom are other countries allowed to participate in the event. 

From the Middle East, teams from the following countries are eligible: Egypt, Iraq, Qatar, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, and Oman. Moreover, teams from the South Africa region can also qualify. 


The winners of the national playoffs will win €2,500 and a 3X Predator Helios 300, while the runners-up will receive €1,500 as well as a 3X headset, mouse, mousepad and backpack. The top three in the EMEA Predator League playoffs will receive prize money of €8,500, €4,500, and €2,000, respectively.

In addition to the grand prize, the Predator League will also feature exclusive promotions from 15 local retail partners. The fans can also expect giveaways and raffles, entertainment and other prizes.

This isn’t the first time ACER has hosted the Predator League for the EMEA region, however it wasn’t Rocket League that the event was held in. Previously, the company was responsible for the EMEA CS:GO Predator League series, which launched in 2016 in partnership with the Electronic Sports League.
