Call Of Duty League Is BACK This Weekend – How To Watch via YouTube Gaming
In partnership with Call of Duty League…
As a sports fan, it’s a really tough time right now. Given the ongoing pandemic that our world’s dealing with, we’re forced to watch replays of classic sporting events, scroll social media for any sports-related news, and, generally speaking, find new ways to scratch that itch for live sports.
Instead of putzing around and complaining about all that, though, it’s time to get into something that’s become the rage for the past few years now: esports.
We all know about the phenomenon, but, for those who haven’t experienced it, now’s the time to check it out. That’s because the latest Call of Duty League season is returning to action this Friday, April 10 at 4 p.m. ET on YouTube Gaming, with the league shifting to an online competition and broadcast production format — and there’s no telling how it’ll all shake down.
Sounds pretty awesome, right? Given the tough times and need for sports right now, the Call of Duty League will satisfy your hunger to get live events without being around thousands of other people. Take a look below at the dopeness of the upcoming esports league.
In the new, fully online format, players, team staff, and production personnel will compete and work safely from locations of their choice, while still maintaining the same competitiveness esports fans have witnessed at live events. The action, intensity, rivalries, play-by-play and smack talk is all back — while also giving players and teams the most safe and fair way of competing remotely, given the unique challenges posed by the current health situation.
The nine remaining regular season Call of Duty League events will be played Friday to Sunday, and will start at the same time each day (Fridays at 4 p.m. ET, Saturdays at 1 p.m. ET, and Sundays at 4 p.m. ET).
The Call of Duty League is a global affair—with 12 professional teams representing 11 different cities across both North America and Europe—so this is a great time to pick a favorite team and enjoy world class esports competition. And with pro teams competing in 5-on-5 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer matches — all battling for the chance at the ultimate prize: The Call of Duty League Championship — the stakes have never been higher.
