Call of Duty Championship to award winners with $1 million


It pays to be good at Call of Duty, quite literally.


Activision is awarding the winners of the next Call of Duty Championship a cool $1 million.

The tournament, which begins on 28th March in Los Angeles, sees 32 of the best Call of Duty teams from across the world compete for a share of the prize. 

"Last year’s championship came down to the final minute of the final match with everyone holding their breath to see who would win. The skill, passion and energy brought by these teams and the crowd looking-on showed just what makes our community the best in the world," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

This year’s tournament will also serve as the first official competitive Call of Duty event played on Xbox One, where prize money will be awarded. Programming covering the weekend’s hard fought matches will be live streamed on the Xbox Live and MLG.tv.

Call of Duty teams from six continents covering North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will contend for their place at the Call of Duty Championship in a range of qualifying events hosted by eSports organisations. Qualifying for the Call of Duty Championship will be handled through online tournaments played on the Xbox 360 and broadcast on MLG.tv, with select live regional finals taking place late February through early March in Australia, the United Kingdom and the U.S. The live regional finals will be played on Xbox One and will also be broadcast live on MLG.tv and through other broadcast partners.

The Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox tournament is open to all qualified players, whether professional gamers or not, provided they meet the requirements of the official rules and regulations.

At least they will keep to the age rating, so no 12 year olds playing

Won't make much difference, they do it on physical age, not mental age.
