With the postseason flying by and the New Year just around the corner, we wanted to share some details about the 2022 Call of Duty League season.
Regular Season Updates
For the 2022 season, the Call of Duty League will feature 12 teams playing four regular season Majors on a hybrid LAN/online model. The game modes for 2022 will be Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and Control.
Each Major will consist of four weeks of matches. The first three weeks will feature qualifying matches where each team plays five prescheduled online matches against randomly drawn teams.
Following those three qualifying weeks, the top eight teams will compete in one week of bracket play at a live LAN event in front of fans where the winner of the Major will be determined. OpTic Texas will host Major 1 with the other hosts to be announced at a later date.
We’re making several important changes for the 2022 Playoffs and Champs. Eight teams will enter Playoffs however the top two seeds will no longer get byes and the bottom two seeds will no longer start in the Losers Bracket. Instead, all eight teams will start in Winners Round 1.
For the first time, the Call of Duty League will introduce a Pro-Am tournament as well as a Call of Duty: Warzone event featuring Call of Duty League pros, streamers, and other influencers.

We are excited to announce that the 2022 Kickoff Classic presented by Zenni Gaming will take place Jan 21 – 23. It will feature all 12 teams battling on LAN with a live audience in attendance at Esports Stadium Arlington in Texas. More info on ticketing coming soon.
Finally, the 2022 Call of Duty League season will officially start on Feb 4 – 6 with these first matches being played online. We can’t wait to see what this third season of the Call of Duty League on Call of Duty: Vanguard has in store for all of us.
