Presented by Xbox in partnership with Major League Gaming (MLG) and other international eSports partners, The Call of Duty Championship returns in 2014.
“Last year’s championship came down to the final minute of the final match with everyone holding their breath to see who would win. The skill, passion and energy brought by these teams and the crowd looking-on showed just what makes our community the best in the world,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty is more than a video game. It’s a pastime shared by millions. It’s exciting to play and fun to watch, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s event has in store.”
This year, the Championship rounds will take place March 28 – 30 in Los Angeles where the winning teams from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will compete in Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Xbox One for a hefty portion of the $1 million prize pool.
