Machine Soldiers competing at CWL London

Gfinity will be hosting Call of Duty World League (CWL) London in May, as well as a separate amateur tournament for up-and-coming teams. CWL London will take place at the 7,500 capacity Copper Box Arena in London from May 3rd to 5th 2019.

It will see 16 of the top CWL pro teams competing for a share of the $325,000 prize pool.

As well as this, there will be an amateur open tournament, which will feature up to 200 teams and has its own $75,000 pool.

Gfinity executive chairman Garry Cook said: "In May, London will become the focus of the gaming world. Gfinity is going to put on a show and deliver an experience that will excite the global Call of Duty esports community.

CWL London marks Gfinity's first major Call of Duty event since 2016, and a return to the Copper Box Arena for the first time since the Last Chance Qualifier event during the 2017 CWL season.

We can't wait to play at the event, which will be the biggest Call of Duty event that we have attended after losing out on Vegas tickets last year. Our team is going to be working hard over the coming months to improve and to get ready for the event.
