Activision have announced
the first series of Challenge Division events for the Call of Duty
World League, which will allow amateur teams from around the world the chance to compete at the highest level.
The Challenge Division will offer amateur players outside of the Pro Division a path to the Call of Duty Championship. At the end of the season, based on performance through the year, 80 teams worldwide will be invited to the Championship Qualifiers. In addition to the Call of Duty Championship Qualifiers, top performing teams in Challenge Division events in February and March can make it to the Stage 1 Relegation tournament where they can take on Pro Division teams and earn their place in the CWL Pro Division and maybe their own guaranteed spot in the Call of Duty Championships.
All teams are welcome to compete, with players competing for World League points and their shot at the Call of Duty
Championship. Players can sign-up for the first wave of online Challenge Division events based on their region below:North AmericaFebruary 20th - 21st presented by UMGFebruary 27th - 28th presented by UMGMarch 5th - 6th presented by ESLMarch 12th - 13th presented by ESLEuropeFebruary 20th - 21st presented by ESLFebruary 27th - 28th presented by ESLMarch 12th - 13th presented by ESLAustralia/New ZealandFebruary 20th - 21st presented by ESLFebruary 27th - 28th presented by ESLMarch 5th - 6th presented by ESL
