Activision has officially announced the dates for the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship, presented by PlayStation 4. The event will take place August 9-13 in Orlando, Florida at the Amway Center.
32 teams from around the world will compete for their share of the $1.5 million prize pool.
Through week two of the Pro League, Team EnVyUs (NA), Splyce (EU), Mindfreak (APAC), Evil Geniuses (NA), FaZe Clan (NA), and Rise Nation (NA) have punched their ticket for the first 6 spots in Orlando.
“The CWL 2017 season is already shaping up to be the biggest one yet,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and general manager of Call of Duty, Activision. “The live events all over the world, including Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Paris and Sydney have been incredible, and the Global Pro League has already featured intense match ups with teams going after the big Stage 1 prize purses. So, the CWL Champs in August becomes even more fitting as the culmination of the best that Call of Duty esports has to offer this year. We can’t wait for Orlando.”
Activision said that tickets will go on sale soon. The event takes place from August 9th through August 13th, but spectators are allowed only from August 11-13. August 9 and 10 will consist of group play action, while August 11-13 will be the double elimination bracket matches.
