The collaboration between DreamHack and Psyonix stems back to 2017 when DreamHack entered into the Rocket League esports and hosted two large scale competitions. Moreover, the two companies also launched the DreamHack Pro Circuit in 2019.

Esports Insider says: Psyonix has recruited two of the biggest events organisers in esports for its new RLCS season. Besides providing top-notch event organisation services, DreamHack and ESL should be able to boost RLSC’s reach to new and existing audiences, while also helping Psyonix expand to less-explored esports ecosystems.
