More about Rocket League’s Esports Shop

The esports-themed Goal Explosions can only be purchased using Esports Tokens, an exclusive currency made for the shop. Players acquire Esports Tokens by purchasing various bundles.

Upon entering the game, Esports Shop is accessible via Item Shop, the game’s regular shop. A separate Esports tab will then pop up, and a catalog of esports-related items will be shown on the screen.

Rocket League’s new esports Goal Explosions are all made available without using the usual shop rotation system, meaning that listed items will remain as long as they are featured. In other words, players will have to make sure not to miss them.
