We are excited to announce that Major League Gaming, in collaboration with the Call of Duty® World League, Presented by PlayStation®4, will be hosting the MLG Anaheim Open. Held at the Anaheim Convention Center on June 10-12, the event will feature up to 96 amateur teams and 12 North American CWL teams competing head-to-head in Call of Duty®: Black Ops III on PlayStation®4 for a $100,000 Prize Pool and 10,000 CWL Pro Points. The Anaheim Open will be one of the key events where players can earn CWL Pro Points for a chance to qualify for the Call of Duty® Championship, Presented by PlayStation®4, which will take place this year.
The format for the event has also been announced. The 96 amateur teams will compete in a Double Elimination Open Bracket. The final four teams will advance to Pool Play, where the 12 CWL Pro Division teams will be separated into four different pools based upon CWL Pro ranking. From there, each team will play one match against another team in their pool. The final pool play standing will determine the team’s placing in a Double Elimination Championship Bracket.
Spectator tickets for the event is now available here. Team passes will be available April 26 at 8PM PDT.
