by on February 17, 2016

Activision have announced the first series of challenge division events for the Call of Duty World League, as they plan to take CoD eSports to the next level.

The Challenge Division will offer amateur players outside of the Pro Division a path to the Call of Duty Championship.  At the end of the season, based on performance through the year, 80 teams worldwide will be invited to the Championship Qualifiers. In addition to the Call of Duty Championship Qualifiers, top performing teams in Challenge Division events in February and March can make it to the Stage 1 Relegation tournament, where they can take on Pro Division teams and earn their place in the CWL Pro Division and maybe their own guaranteed spot in the Call of Duty Championships.

Players can now sign-up for the first three European online events, each with $5,000 prize pools. All teams are welcome to compete, with players competing for World League points and their shot at the Call of Duty Championship:

·         20th – 21st February presented by ESL

·         27th – 28th February presented by ESL

·         12th – 13th March presented by ESL

In addition to the online tournaments, Europe will host its first live event ‘EGL Open’ at the Truman Brewery in London on the 5th & 6th March, with $25,000 in prize money and World League points up for grabs for competing teams.
