Call of Duty League CDL Launch Weekend

The Call of Duty League’s inaugural season is set to begin on Jan. 24 in Minnesota. Dubbed “Launch Weekend,” this is the first time we’ll see every CDL organization playing Modern Warfare on LAN. Obviously an exciting time for fans and players alike, Launch Weekend should be one of the biggest events we’ve seen in Call of Duty esports. With such a huge event, many fans at home are wondering how they can get in on the action and cheer on from home. Well, that’s exactly what we’ll be going over today.

How to watch the CDL Launch Weekend

As with any Call of Duty event, there will be several ways to watch at home. Activision has traditionally been great at streaming its events on multiple platforms, allowing for the maximum viewing experience.

The CDL will be no different, as there are several streams going on all weekend. The first of which is the official Call of Duty Twitch channel, which will showcase every match. Unlike in previous years, every match will be played at a different time, so there’s no need for the Bravo and Charlie streams.

In regards to other platforms, like YouTube, details on that will be released leading up to the event. However, a full video with every match should be uploaded to the official Call of Duty League YouTube channel. So, for those of you that can’t watch live, you’ll still be able to view the event.

Above, you can find the entire schedule for the event. It will take place over three days from Jan. 24 to Jan. 26, with around four matches happening each day. All of the series will be a best-of-five with three modes being played: Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and Domination. Unlike other events, there will no “winner” declared for this event. Instead, teams will earn CDL points for each victory they secure.
