The 2022 Call of Duty League season is well underway, with three Majors down and just one more to go before CoD Champs. Here’s all the info you need on the 2022 season including schedule, standings, format, and more.
The Call of Duty League came 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’ve had to fend off competition from the likes of Seattle Surge and newly-formed OpTic Texas, a result of the merger between OpTic Chicago and Dallas Empire in the offseason, but to no avail: they’ve come second at every Major this season so far.
Take a look for the full rundown on what to expect over the coming season.

The regular season of the CoD League kicked off on February 4. Four months later, here’s how the standings look before Major 3. It’s worth noting, too, that only the top 8 teams after Major 4 will qualify for Champs, meaning teams like New York Subliners have found themselves in a very tough situation.
|Position||Team||Series record||Map record||CDL Points|
|4||London Royal Ravens||17-14||64-61||190|
|8||New York Subliners||14-15||59-61||160|
The CDL Kickoff Classic took place from January 21-23, with all 12 teams looking to get themselves off to a hot start before the season officially got going. Toronto Ultra ultimately took home the win, beating a surprisingly strong Seattle Surge side in the grand finals.
From then onwards, the regular season has played out as follows:
Major 1: February 4-March 6
Major 2: March 11-April 3
Midseason tournaments: April 9-May 8

- May 5-8: Pro-Am Classic (LAN)
- All 12 League teams are scheduled to compete on LAN in front of a live audience alongside the top four Challengers squads. $100,000 in first place prizing is on the line as the pros face off against their Challenger foes. No CDL points will be awarded for this event.
