Carvana, an industry pioneer for buying and selling used cars online, and esports and gaming leader NRG are thrilled to partner in hosting a new skills challenge event in search of the world's next Rocket League pro. The Carvana | NRG Combine, in collaboration with the Network of Academic and Scholastic Esports Federations (NASEF), invites outstanding student esports athletes aged 18 and up to compete for a one-year content creator contract Carvana and NRG, a grand prize of $10,000 and the chance to make a name in the esports industry.

Over two days starting November 11, 2023, the iconic NRG Castle in downtown Los Angeles will transform into the Carvana | NRG Combine. This event will not only feature top gamers and aspiring esports professionals competing and showcasing their technique, but will also serve as a boot camp for esports business acumen. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts as they hone their craft. In addition, student athletes will meet Rocket League ace Musty and other NRG team members, all while watching gaming's best in action.

"NASEF is thrilled to partner with Carvana and NRG to present such a fantastic event for students," said Claire LaBeaux, Chief Marketing Officer at NASEF.
