The Call of Duty World League’s Pro Division will start on April 20th according to a press release from Activision.
The press release, which was sent out to give further details on MLG Dallas, also revealed the start date for the LAN league, which was previously unknown.
“The CWL Dallas Open is the final event where teams and their rosters can earn CWL Pro Points for a chance to qualify into Stage 1 of the CWL Global Pro League, beginning April 20,” reads the press release. “The CWL Global Pro League, taking place live at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio, will include 16 teams worldwide over two stages of competition, each with a hefty prize pool. This weekly LAN league is a first for the CWL, working with MLG.”
The competition will be the first weekly LAN league in the Call of Duty World League, with all other league competitions being online. Teams are currently trying to assemble enough pro points to qualify for the competition, with LAN events such as the upcoming Gfinity London tournament giving away thousands of points to its top placing teams.
