The Rocket League Season 9 World Championship has been canceled because of global fears about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Psyonix announced Thursday.
"The safety and health of our professional players, personnel, and fans will continue to be our first consideration as we navigate our future plans," the developers wrote in a blog post. "Thank you for your patience and understanding as we explore the best options moving forward."
The event was scheduled for April 24-26 in Dallas, Texas, at the Curtis Culwell Center. Any tickets bought from the ETIX website should receive a full refund plus fees, and anyone who purchased the parking passes will also receive a refund. If you have failed to receive a refund by March 11, contact ETIX support at email@example.com.
Those who used a third-party website to purchase tickets need to contact them immediately for a refund. The rest of Season 9 will be played as planned up until the Regional Championships and Promotion Tournament. Rocket League Esports is looking into replacing the World Championship and will share more information when they have it.
And those worried about the "attendee in-game Wheel," anyone who purchased a ticket via ETIX will receive one code via email.
