I may have to watch this cross-eyed, but there are four matches starting us off in the Call Of Duty League Pro-Am, with Atlanta Faze versus Seattle Surge to begin the day on the main stage. I apologize, we won’t be able to cover everything as deeply as we usually do given there are TWELVE matches today and tomorrow, but the exciting thing is we get to see four Challengers teams competing versus the big 12. The top eight will exit Friday with a chance at $250k, and we’ll get to see it happen starting now. Below is intel from the Call Of Duty League blog, get your fix and find a stream!

Here’s everything you need to know about this tournament:
The first Challengers Open was held at the Minnesota RØKKR’s Major II tournament in early April, where 96 amateur teams battled it out to claim one of the top four spots and secure an invitation to the Pro-Am Classic. Those top four amateur teams joining the 12 Call of Duty League teams are: Strike X, Team WaR, Ultra Academy EU, and Ultra Academy NA. Take a look at the full Groups here.
These top four Challengers teams will join the Call of Duty League pro squads in Columbus, Ohio, to compete on LAN at the Belong Gaming Arena.
The 16 teams are divided up into four Groups of four for round-robin competition from May 5–6.
The top two teams from each Group will qualify for an eight-team single elimination bracket to decide the winner.
