The 2022 Call of Duty League season is underway, with teams hard at work in Vanguard and taking on the highest level of competition in Call of Duty history. Here’s all the info you need on the 2022 season including schedule, standings, format, and more.

The Call of Duty League is back with a bang in 2022. We’ve had brand new franchises entering the fray, players and teams seeking revenge on their 2021 rivals, and reigning champions Atlanta FaZe looking to become Call of Duty’s greatest-ever dynasty.

They’ll have to fend off competition from the likes of LA Guerrillas and newly-formed OpTic Texas, a result of the merger between OpTic Chicago and Dallas Empire in the offseason.
