Who won the latest Call of Duty World League Championship? And what is the future of the tournament going forward?

The 2019 Call Of Duty World League Championship took place from August 14 through the 18, with 32 teams from around the world competing in Los Angeles for a shot at a slice of a massive prize pool. An immense five-day competition capped the Championship, and the victors were the group calling themselves eUnited.

Led by MVP Chris “Simp” Lehr, eUnited pulled off their win yesterday, leaving runner-up 100 Thieves in the dust. OpTic Gaming and Enigma6 were the two other teams competing in the final.

“Congratulations to eUnited for their victory at the 2019 Call of Duty World League Championship,” said Johanna Faries, Commissioner of Call of Duty Esports. “Thank you to the teams at Activision and Treyarch as well as our league sponsors for helping us deliver an incredibly competitive and entertaining season of gameplay for our fans around the world.”

So what’s next? The tournament grows bigger. Activision announced today that in 2020, Call of Duty Esports will grow to a city-based franchise league, featuring games in home markets around the globe. These include announced teams in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Minnesota, New York, Paris, and Toronto, with more team announcements to come.
