The Call of Duty League isn’t wasting any time. With the franchise model set to kick off next year, Activision Blizzard has announced that there will be home and away match-ups starting with season one in 2020. Their other league for Overwatch beta-tested home and away match-ups in a limited fashion this year. They’ll also be going to a full time home and away style for next season.
So far, seven teams have been announced for the Call of Duty League. Six of those teams also participate in Overwatch League. The seventh is based out of Minnesota, and is owned by the same group that owns the Minnesota Vikings. It’s worth noting that Overwatch League had a season and a half to get fans excited to see their teams come home and play. It’ll be interesting to see whether Call of Duty will be able to elicit the same reaction.
