Orlando Pirates Exdee

The above-mentioned trio, who are part of the Exdee Gaming organisation and are supported by Orlando Pirates, qualified for this World Championship event with two qualifiers in hand. 

They booked their spot in Dallas after a consistent showing in the Rocket League Championship Series. 

World Championship Wildcard event will consist of 16 teams that qualified from the eligible continents, with the top 8 going into the RLCS Main Event.

The team prepped hard in a boot camp in Dallas before the World Champs. They take on Version1 to kickstart their campaign.
