The Call of Duty World League has revealed the dates and location for the CWL Finals event that will feature both the Pro League Playoffs and qualifiers for the 2019 CWL Championship.


As the 2018-19 CWL season draws closer to its end, the stakes, glory, and prize money are raised even higher, with there being a lot for players to play for over the span of just a few more events.

One such event will be the CWL Finals event, which will feature both the conclusion of the Pro League as well as the finals for the Amateur Circuit. 


The CWL Finals will kick off Friday, July 19 and culminate on Sunday, July 21, taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.

This will set the stage for the grand finale of the Black Ops 4 season, the 2019 CWL Championship, which will likely take place just a few weeks after the CWL Finals. 

CWL Pro League Playoffs

After 12 grueling weeks of Pro League action, the top teams from the regular season will come together in Miami to play a three-day Playoffs, which will determine this year's Pro League champion.

The teams that will be in attendance will include the top four teams from each of the two Divisions, and two more from the bottom eight teams that manage to qualify via the Play-In tournament. 

The Playoffs will feature an overall $1.25 million prize pool, $500,000 of which will go to the team that finishes in first place.

The CWL Finals will feature 10 of the 16 Pro League teams competing in a $1.25 million playoffs.

CWL Amateur Finals and Champs qualifiers

The other portion of the CWL Finals will be dedicated to the CWL Open Bracket Finals for amateur teams and players, which will feature a $150,000 prize pool of its own. 

The Open Bracket will feature 256 of the top amateur teams battling against each other for not only a slice of the prize pool, but also a chance to compete at the 2019 CWL Champs.

The top 16 teams from the Open Bracket tournament will both receive a share of the prize money and qualify for Champs, where they will compete against the 16 Pro League teams that have already qualified. 

The Open Bracket Finals at CWL Finals will not only award prize money to the top amateur teams, but will also stamp their ticket to compete at the 2019 CWL Championship.
