Turner & IMG’s ELEAGUE, in partnership with Psyonix, will continue bringing fans the best moments from its recent professional Rocket League tournament with the second episode of a three-part feature series premiering tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 21, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS. The show will offer behind-the-scenes access to the game’s top players along with the best plays from the event, in which eight top-ranked teams competed for a $150,000 purse.

At ELEAGUE, the winning team advances to ELEAGUE’s Grand Final to face We Dem Girlz.

The ELEAGUE series will conclude with its final episode – Friday, Dec. 28, at 11 p.m. on TBS – which will capture The ELEAGUE Cup’s Grand Final match.
