Activision clarified the venue and dates for the year’s showpiece Call of Duty esports event.
Everything you need to know about the Call of Duty Championship
The competition has been fierce thus far in the 2021 Call of Duty League, and it’s only going to get tougher as we inch closer to the Call of Duty League Championship. The tournament with a prize pool of $2,150,000 will see the best teams from around the globe compete for the ultimate glory. League officials have now confirmed that the championship will take place in Galen Center, Los Angeles, from August 19 to 22.
Activision announced the Stage 5 Major structure a couple of days ago but the Championship stage details were not clear yet. Now we know that the August 19-20 weekend will decide the winner of this season’s CDL trophy and the big prize.
LAN esports is back for Call of Duty
Unlike the Stage 5 Major, which will take place in Arlington, the championship will transpire in Los Angeles. However, similar to the previous major, the entire event will commence in a LAN environment.
Tickets for the Championship will be available to the public from July 16. League officials are yet to reveal ticket pricing but expect it to be around $59, similar to the cost of a Major ticket which includes a two-day pass. Even though tickets are not on sale yet, Activision offers pre-sale access in exchange for subscribing to their newsletter.
Atlanta FaZe have already secured a round-two start and are favorites to win it all. Dallas Empire, Toronto Ultra, New York Subliners and OpTic Chicago are the other teams that are in contention for a spot in the championship. However, fans will have to wait until August 1 for a clear picture of all the participating teams.
