Here’s the full message from Activision:
The year’s premiere and definitive Call of Duty competitive event, the Call of Duty World League Championship, is coming to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, August 9 – 13. For the first time on the East Coast, CWL Champs will offer fans the chance to see the top 32 teams in the world compete for a prize pool of $1.5 million as part of the largest CWL season-long prize pool to date of $4 Million. Top teams already are battling it out in the CWL Global Pro League to earn a shot at an automatic berth in the grand finale of the Call of Duty World League year, CWL Champs. 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.”
