In collaboration with Rocket League's publisher Psyonix and live streaming service Twitch, the Raidiant Rocket League Series will take place February 26-27, 2022 and offer one of the largest prize pools for a Women's Rocket League tournament.

The tournament will offer a $15,000 prize pool and will be open to a mix of professional, amateur, influencer, and collegiate all-Women's teams. All Women's teams and individuals can sign-up for the event at Raidiant.gg/RocketLeagueSeries . The event will be produced from the Verizon 5G Gaming Center in Los Angeles , on Verizon's impressive XR Stage.

The Raidiant Rocket League Series is uniquely positioned to provide multiple engagement opportunities for players and fans. Raidiant will create shoulder content with participating teams, as an opportunity to celebrate the exponential growth of women in gaming. Twitch creators will have the opportunity to apply for co-streaming. Professional teams competing in the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) will have an opportunity to support the Women's teams by co-streaming matches on Twitch, broadening the viewership for the aspiring women's rosters. Rocket League Fan Rewards will be available to viewers watching on Twitch.tv/RaidiantGG .

Dignitas is the first RLCS team who has pledged support of the event through its Rocket League team, with Joris "Joreuz" Robben, Jack "ApparentlyJack" Benton, and Kyle "Scrub Killa" Robertsen - who recently won the BMW Rocket League Open - all co-streaming matches. Dignitas also will support the event through its popular content creators Elyse "Herculyse" Herrera, Demi "TigerQueen" Green, Sam "Sam" Zuhair and Max "MaximusAemulus" Andersen, who will create content from the event on their personal channels while co-streaming the tournament Twitch.

The tournament is created in collaboration with the Twitch Women's Alliance . The Twitch Women's Alliance program is dedicated to supporting women creators on Twitch. The primary objectives are to build a direct support network, develop targeted educational and social programs, and increase representation of women in the Twitch community. Twitch Women's Alliance aims to strengthen the Twitch community and amplify, support and uplift all women streamers.

Raidiant.gg is an initiative and content hub focused on celebrating and championing opportunities for women gamers. As the next stage of Dignitas' women's initiative, Raidiant provides educational, social and competitive resources for gamers. In June 2021 , alongside Dignitas and Riot Games, Raidiant collaborated on the Verizon VCT Game Changers, an all Women's VALORANT tournament which was one one of the most viewed Women's esports events in history with over 400,000 viewed hours and more than 30,000 concurrent peak viewers.

Rocket League esports has historically been a highly sought after opportunity for brands seeking an entryway into esports. With the game's similarities to traditional football, paired with rocket powered flying cars, it's an easily understandable esport title that's brand friendly. Further, the Raidiant Rocket League Series will welcome a truly diverse audience from across the globe as both men and women are expected to tune into the stream.

Raidiant partner, VIRUS International, will be providing all competitors with custom Raidiant jerseys for their participation. NYX Professional Makeup, a founding partner of Raidiant, will support the event through content and product giveaways.

Introducing The Evolution of CBD Retail

We're excited to introduce an evolutionary step in CBD sales with www.gonzogummies.com . Over the last 3 years as CBD has exploded in popularity consumers are faced with either a more expensive in-store experience which was designed to provide an educational format for newcomers, or an innumerable selection of online sources, with very little ability to decipher the reputation and quality or gain any sort of guidance based on individual needs.

Gonzo Gummies has partnered with several reputable high-end manufacturers, as well as a dedicated staff of CBD specialists to provide the best of both worlds. This next step in CBD allows consumers to experience a wealth of innovative CBD products, including Delta 8, Delta 10, THCO, THCV, THCP and HHC along with easy access to guidance and support from specialists from every category of use. Gonzo Gummies is committed to expanding the awareness and use across the country as well with products that align with current cannabis formats, such as disposable vapes, wax (dabs) products and edibles that may provide a higher potency as well as benefits that may be a closer resemblance to traditional cannabis products.
