Psyonix has announced its plans to celebrate Hispanic and Latino Heritage Month and the Independence Days for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile. First up is the free iFiesta Latina bundle, which can be picked up free of charge from the in-game store between September 15th and October 15th. The bundle contains the Acero-Florentina Wheel — a Mexican Sunflower-inspired wheel — and three Player Anthems recorded by AL3JANDRO: Loca, So Good, and We Own the Night. The three tracks will also be added to Rocket League Radio.

Additionally, Rocket League Esports and Rocket Street will be hosting the Goals for Change: Campeonato de las Americas online open tournament, running from September 18th to October 2nd, with sign-ups now open on the Rocket Street website.

  • 2nd Place — $6,000 per team.
  • 3rd Place — $4,000 per team.

  • 4th Place — $1,000 per team.
