Los Angeles Guerrillas release entire CDL & Academy roster


Los Angeles Guerrillas are looking to start fresh in 2022. The team has officially announced that they are releasing all eight of their players. This includes everyone from the CDL and the Academy roster.

There haven’t been many highlights for the Guerrillas in their two CDL seasons. The team saw success early on in the season finishing Top-6 at Major 1. However, it was a downhill slope from there on out.

The team never managed to regain and put out consistent performances and as a result, they missed out on the 2021 CDL Championship.
