College CoD (CCL) announced today that they will be partnering with Belong Gaming Arenas to host the first ever live National Championship LAN in Columbus, Ohio. The tournament will take place June 11th-12th.
There will be 100 spectator tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets start at $25 and will cover both days – check them out here.
Belong’s Columbus venue hosted the Call of Duty League Pro-Am classic earlier this month, bringing in top CDL and amateur teams to compete for a $100,000 prize pool.
The top 8 teams in Collegiate CoD will compete in a nationwide bracket as they fight for the title.
The Top 8 College CoD Teams
- Ottawa Gold
- Cue Maroon
- CSULB Black
- LA Tech Red
- Ryerson Rams
- Penn State
- CU Black
- UTD COD Orange
Each of these teams have competed fiercely over the past year. However, none have been quite as impressive as Ottawa Gold and Cue Maroon, who have won every single match they’ve played, without conceding a single map.
However, that doesn’t mean this competition will be a cakewalk. CSULB Black and LA Tech Rams also hold a 100%-win rate, losing only a handful of maps throughout the year.
Likewise, Ryerson Rams, Penn State, CU Black, UTD COD Orange all hold a win-rate of 94.12%, or 16-1, a near perfect record.
