Reno 1868 FC to Compete in USL eCup: Rocket League Edition
RENO, Nev. - Reno 1868 FC will be competing in the USL's first-ever eCup Rocket League tournament. The 32-team tournament features clubs from the USL's Championship and League One competing in 1v1 duel games. The tournament has a charitable tie-in as well, with each club selecting a charity that will be linked to each game's stream, with fans encouraged to donate. Reno 1868 FC will be playing for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
"We just wanted to create something fun and entertaining," said USL Senior Vice President of Digital Lizzie Seedhouse. "More than anything, this tournament will be a great way to give clubs and supporters the ability to come together, compete and have some fun."
The tournament begins with eight four-team groups. Group stage will run from next Tuesday, March 31 to Friday, April 10. Each group-stage game will be a best-of-three, with the top two in each group moving on to the knockout stage.
Reno's group will include western conference foe Tacoma Defiance, as well as eastern conference sides North Carolina FC and Louisville City FC.
Every game of the USL eCup: Rocket League Edition will be streamed live on Twitch, and Reno's club representatives for the competition will be announced next week.
