Challengers Champs is here. For the first time under the Challengers banner, we have a World Championship on our hands.

Teams from all four regions of the Call of Duty world have travelled out to Los Angeles for the biggest tournament of the year.

Previously, each region had their own separate Championship event, with varying prize pools.


Whilst the actual Call of Duty league may not have released a graphical form of the bracket for Challengers Champs, here is ours.

How to watch

Unlike the Call of Duty League broadcast, not every match from Challengers Champs will be broadcast.

Only half of the WR1 matches, LR1 matches and LR2 matches will be broadcast.

That means that fans will miss out on four of the 14 matches that will make up the Challengers bracket.

Matches will be broadcast from 10:30 PT (18:30 BST) on Friday, August 5.

The broadcast will run on Youtube. 

Stay tuned to The Rotation for comprehensive coverage of both Challengers and Call of Duty League Championship Weekend.
