The Sun doubles CoD Open Prize Pot to £10,000!


We are thrilled to announce that The Sun has decided to get behind UK esports and will be doubling the prize pot in this weekend’s Call of Duty Open to an amazing £10,000!



As a way to support the grassroots development of esports in the UK and to help us unearth the next Call of Duty esports stars, The Sun has decided to back the Gfinity Call of Duty Open, our first ever UK Open event at the Gfinity Arena in Fulham Broadway in London.

In order to get as much support behind the up and coming Call of Duty players, we’ve made all of the spectator tickets completely free. The final 16 teams will be playing to packed out crowds on Sunday in our two stages seating up to 600 spectators with all of the action being streamed live for everyone else on

We’d like to say a big thank you to The Sun for getting behind UK esports and we hope to see you all there online at or in the Arena!
