Call of Duty League Championship Weekend will return to Southern California for 2022, welcoming CWL fans to sunny Los Angeles. Here you will find everything you need to know, from the event location to ticket sales.
LA will be home to the last three physical CDL World Championships as it prepares to host the best teams in the league in a familiar venue.
Although we still have New York Subliner’s Stage 4 Major to look forward to at the end of July, Activision is giving CDL audiences a couple of months to organize their trip to SoCal.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to get to CDL Champs 2022 to see Call of Duty’s biggest stars compete for the lion’s share of $250,000.
Home of the CDL Champions
Activision is running it again at the USC Galen Center, where the top eight teams in the league will battle it out for the right to be called the 2022 CWL champions.
Aside from the 2020 season, Champs has graced the City of Angels since 2019, much to the disappointment of those who wanted to see the event in London.
Regardless, the 2022 CDL campaign will have an exciting conclusion in August when the teams fly to the Golden State.
CDL Champs Dates and Format
the CDL Championship Weekend will take place from August 4-7, when fans will find out who can call themselves the best in the league.
There will be a couple of format changes compared to what we saw in 2021 which will now have all eight teams in the same bracket to determine the ultimate Call of Duty team.
Biggest change in playoff format for CDL champions:
- Eight teams will enter the playoffs
- Unlike in 2021, the top two seeds will no longer get byes and the bottom two seeds will no longer start in the losers bracket.
- All eight teams will start in Winners Round 1.
CDL Champs Ticket Sales
Fans will have two opportunities to purchase CDL Champs tickets through an advance sale June 27-29 and a general public release scheduled for June 30.
Call of Duty fans are excited to see who will be crowned the CDL champion for the 2022 season, and they won’t have long to wait before the most prestigious event of the year.
