ESports Tokens in Rocket League
In early April 2019, Psyonix announced that Rocket League is launching a brand new shop that works in collaboration with its profession Esports league, the RLCS. Known as the Rocket League Esports Shop, this pilot program allows players to support their favorite pros by amassing Tokens to get cosmetic items, each relevant to specific teams.
Here is everything you need to know about how to get Rocket League Esports Tokens, what they do, and much more.
What Esports Tokens Are & What They’re Used For
Esports Tokens are the newest form of currency in Rocket League, as you’ll have to have a certain amount to be able to unlock specific cars, banners, and wheels in the shop. At the moment, only a handful of teams are apart of the Esports Shop pilot program:
For each of the teams pictured above, players can purchase featured items to place on their cars for cosmetic purposes. Those items include two decals for Octane and Dominus cars, one player banner, and a number of different wheels.
Alongside the skins and other virtual goodies, each pro team that is participating int he program is going to receive 30% of the revenue from items sold in the shop, meaning you’re literally supporting them. An undisclosed amount will also go toward “a Prize Pool bonus” for the North American and European RLCS League Play too.

In order to purchase Tokens, you’ll need to head over to the Shop tab of the Main Menu in Rocket League. Once inside, there is a new option for the Rocket League Esports Shop.

Currently, Psyonix is offering four different purchasing options for Tokens in the Rocket League Esports Shop, with the lowest amount you can spend sitting at $1.
Tokens will be sold in the following packs (varies by region):
