Activision and its partner Major League Gaming's $1 million Call of Duty Championship will begin today, and events will stream on MLG's official site through the end of March, the eSports organization announced this week.
Beginning at 12 p.m. ET today, Feb. 1, more than 300 U.S.-based teams — including Complexity, Curse LV, Curse NY, Deinal, Envy, Kaliber, OpTic and Strictly Business — will compete in the first of two Online Qualifiers.
The U.S. Regional Final will follow at Full Sail University on March 8-9, when the top eight teams from each qualifier will compete for limited spots in the Championship. Tickets for the event will be available beginning Feb. 3 at 5 p.m. ET in the MLG store, including $100 VIP passes that grant access to both days, reserved seating, a behind-the-scenes tour and more. General admission passes will also be available for $25.
The Call of Duty Championship finals will take place in Los Angeles March 28-30, where 32 qualifying worldwide teams will compete. That event will be streamed at MLG.tv and on Xbox One.
