It's Champs season!

The 2020 Call of Duty esports season is nearing its conclusion and while the professional teams prepare for the CDL Championship, amateur and semi-professional teams are gearing up for the biggest tournament of the season, the CDC Challengers Championship.

Due to the current global situation, the tournament has been split into three regions where the best teams from Europe, North America and Asia Pacific will do battle online to be crowned the best team in their respective regions.

Find all the information surrounding the event, including prize pool, how the tournament will work, which teams will be competing and more.

Format

CoD Challengers Champs

With one big tournament where teams from across the world will face off in person not possible, each region will have its own tournament. A total of 32 teams from North America and Europe will battle against each other while 16 teams from the APAC region will compete.

The top 16 North American and European teams in Challenger points as of the Toronto Home Series will qualify while eight teams will qualify through the last-chance qualifier which takes place from August 1st-2nd.

The tournament will be double-elimination, enabling teams that fall in the early stages another chance of making a deep run into the money.
