December 5, 2022: Ahead of the second batch of qualifiers, we've updated the guide with a full list of results from a controversial opening week.

Following a lengthy off-season, the CDL Major 1 qualifiers are here. The competitive Modern Warfare 2 season sees 12 of the best teams in the world battle it out to win Majors and ultimately become the CDL Champion at the end of the season.


Just like last season, three weeks of online qualifiers will determine seeding for Major tournaments. The first of the 2023 season takes place in Raleigh, North Carolina and is the first time MW2 appears on LAN. With huge amounts of prize money up for grabs, beginning the year on the front foot is key.

Where to watch CDL Major 1 qualifiers

Previous CDL seasons were available to watch exclusively on YouTube but for 2023, things are slightly different. You can watch the Major 1 qualifiers on Call of Duty's Twitch channel, a place where competitive Call of Duty blossomed before the franchising of the league took place.

We've embedded the stream above so you don't miss a single second of the action.
