Gfinity today announced that, in partnership with Activision, they are hosting a new European Call of Duty Pro League to help develop and further the Call of Duty eSports community in Europe. The league is set to start on June 10th, with qualifiers starting May 27th.
In association with Activision, Gfinity will run an online professional league for the remaining competitive season of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The league will be hosted on Gfinity.net and will be appropriately divided into separate divisions.
The two highest divisions, Premier and Championship, will feature the most elite teams within the European competitive Call of Duty community, while the following “Call of Duty League” will be comprised of the best up and coming talent in Europe, across multiple divisions.
Within each division, there will be 8 participating teams, with fixtures occurring on a “home” and “away” basis. Therefore, in total, teams are required to play 2 games per week, 14 games a season.
Prior to start of the League Season, teams will be allowed to register a maximum of 6 active players on their roster.
In regards to qualification, the Premier Division will have 6 teams invited and 2 spots open for qualification. The Championship division’s sports will be open to any teams to qualify. Each league season will have up to £14,000 in prize money, with £10,000 for Premier Division, and £4,000 for Championship division.
