Who will rise into esports stardom when the Call of Duty World League holds the CWL Atlanta Open this weekend? It’s an open competition that anyone can enter, but which precious few will make it all the way to the end?
Over 170 teams are in contention for a $4.2 million prize purse, the largest in the competition’s history. In this weekend’s events alone, $200,000 are up for grabs. Established CoD teams are part of the tournament, but they won’t be alone by Sunday.
“The city of Atlanta has become a critical staple in the Call of Duty World League event calendar, and we’re thrilled to return,” said Call of Duty Esports Director, Kevin Flynn. “Last season in Atlanta, we saw a team battle from the massive open bracket and win the event championship in one of the most memorable moments in CWL history. It’s those moments that make our competition stand out, and we can’t wait to see what our competitors can accomplish this weekend.”
Here are the established teams who will be playing this weekend in the CWL Atlanta Open pool bracket, and who they’ll be facing:
There are four more spots open in the bracket, but who winds up there depends on the results of the competition. Over 170 teams will be facing off to get there!
