Who’s next to join the Call of Duty Esports League? The roster just got larger with two new teams added to the tournament. Who are they?
Currently, the Call of Duty Esports League has teams from five regions: Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Paris, and Toronto. Soon they will be adding two new locations: Los Angeles and Minnesota.
· Los Angeles, CA – Immortals Gaming Club (IGC) is the world’s first vertically integrated, truly global esports and gaming company. IGC owns and operates IGC esports, which houses the company’s competitive esports brands Immortals, Los Angeles Valiant (Overwatch League), OpTic Gaming and MIBR; and Gamers Club, the leading matchmaking platform and community hub for gamers in Brazil and Latin America.
· Minnesota – WISE Ventures, an investment fund based in Manhattan focused on early and growth stage investment opportunities that leverage our strategic value. Led by an ownership group with deep sports & entertainment and real estate experience, WISE is able to assess, champion, and add value to next-gen companies in those industries.
“I’m excited to welcome the newest teams, Los Angeles and Minnesota, to our incredible lineup – Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Paris and Toronto – for Call of Duty esports,” says Bobby Kotick, Activision CEO. “Together, these ownership groups represent some of the very best organizations in esports and traditional sports who will join us in paving the way for the future of professional, city-based competition for Call of Duty.”
These two new teams will compete later this year in the Call of Duty World League, featuring Black Ops 4.
