Just over a million dollars is up for grabs this weekend at the Call of Duty League Championship. Happening from August 19-22, the eight best teams in the league are set to square off for Black Ops Cold War glory before Call of Duty Vanguard releases this fall.

If you’re in California, tickets are still available to watch the event in person at the Galen Center; be ready to mask up, show proof of vaccination for COVID-19, or a negative PCR or antigen test within 72 hours of the day you’ll be attending.

The eight teams set to compete are:

  • Atlanta FaZe – (aBeZy, Cellium, Simp, Arcitys)
  • OpTic Chicago – (Dashy, Envoy, FormaL, Scump)
  • Dallas Empire – (Shotzzy, iLLeY, Crimsix, Vivid)
  • Florida Mutineers – (Havok, Skyz, Owakening, Neptune)
  • Los Angeles Thieves – (Drazah, Kenny, SlasheR, John)
  • Minnesota RØKKR – (Attach, MajorManiak, Priestahh, Standy)
  • New York Subliners – (Mack, Clayster, HyDra, Asim)
  • Toronto Ultra – (Bance, Cammy, CleanX, Insight)

Atlanta comes into the event in the first seed with the most CDL Points from the season, but they’ll have to hold off a hot RØKKR squad, among others. The foursome from Minnesota is coming off of a big win at the Stage V Finals against Toronto. OpTic, Dallas, and Toronto have each proven they can be dangerous on LAN.

The winning squad will bring home a cool $1.2 million in prize money, while second place will earn $650,000. Third place will walk away with $300,000.

The action starts on Thursday with Minnesota taking on Dallas, followed by New York taking on OpTic. Keep an eye on this page all weekend for the updated schedule and results!
