COD World League's Global Pro League Kicks of April 21

The first-ever Call of Duty World League Global Pro League starts April 21.  Over the next 10 weeks the top 16 Call of Duty professional teams from around the globe will face-off across two stages of competition, each offering $700,000 in prize purses.  Placements in the Global Pro League will dictate seeding in the grand finale of the Call of Duty year, the Call of Duty World League Championship, where another $1.5M will be on the line, bringing the total CWL prizing to $4M for the year.

Through the next five weekends, 16 professional teams will descend on the MLG Arena in Columbus, OH, for the Stage 1 competitions.  In addition to the $700,000 payout, the teams will be competing for seeding heading into the Stage 2 contests starting in June in Columbus.  The 16 teams hail from North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

The groups and schedule for Stage 1 contests:

  • Team EnVyUs, Splyce, Cloud 9, Mindfreak – April 21 - 23
  • FaZe Clan, Rise Nation, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses – April 28 - 30
  • eUnited, Luminosity Gaming, Millenium, Epsilon – May 5 - 7
  • OpTic Gaming, Red Reserve, Enigma6 Group, Elevate – May 12 - 14
  • Playoffs of the top eight teams – May 21 - 23

The teams secured their spot for the Stage 1 Global Pro League by earning CWL Pro Points through months of intense Call of Duty competition.  Featuring group play, the Stage 1 action will unfold over the next five weekends as teams compete in double round-robin competition and look to continue the action into Stage 2 competition starting June 29.

The top two teams from each group move on to the playoffs and automatically qualify for Stage 2 of the Global Pro league.  The bottom team in each group will need to battle their way back into Stage 2 through relegation matches.
