Call of Duty League 2021 Opening Weekend dates and Kickoff Classic event announced

Activision has announced the start dates for the Call of Duty League 2021 season, along with a one-year anniversary event to kick off proceedings. 

This year’s season will start with Kickoff Classic on 23-24th January, designed to celebrate the anniversary of the Call of Duty League with fan-voted matches, a group selection show and further details about the 2021 season. 

Fans will be able to choose the opponents of the top three 2020 season teams, namely Dallas Empire, Atlanta FaZe and OpTic Chicago (formerly Chicago Huntsmen). 

The group selection will allow teams to select which team will be placed in its next-ranked opponents group, meaning Dallas Empire will pick Atlanta FaZe’s first opponent in their group. Other teams will subsequently pick dependent on their 2020 CDL position.
