It’s honestly hard to believe we’re at the mid-point of the Call Of Duty League already. We’ve had a perfect stage (Atlanta Faze in Stage I), a miraculous underdog story (Toronto Ultra’s zero to hero Major II win), and who knows what awaits us in Major III. I’m personally rooting for my Atlanta Faze bois (love you aBeZy), but there are a lot of great teams playing and it’s truly anyone’s game. There’s some cool info that’s been dropped over the last couple of weeks, and we’re slapping that down below along with the Major III schedule and the links to watch them on Youtube.
Call of Duty League Goes Back to LAN
Today, we are proud to announce Call of Duty League Major IV will be played in a live event setting, hosted by the 2020 Call of Duty League Champions Dallas Empire.
Following the Stage IV online regular season, Call of Duty League will venture to Esports Stadium Arlington for the first LAN event of the year: Major IV, taking place June 17-20, 2021.
As part of our initial return to live events, Major IV will adhere to strict League health and safety protocols and attendance will be limited to players in the League as well as limited Call of Duty League and team staff.
Attendees will follow strict COVID-19 protocols, including Rapid Response testing throughout the event.
We have been diligently exploring ways for the Call of Duty League to return to a live event format, so long as it is safe to do so. Today is the first step in that process. Stay tuned for more details!
