European based Call of Duty team Red Reserve have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
The org became the first team from Division A to clinch a spot in the postseason on the virtue of picking up their ninth win in Stage 2.
Coming into Week 6 of the Pro League, Red Reserve led Division A with a strong 8-2 record, and would need just one win or a loss from one of the lower teams to qualify for the Playoffs.
However, they did not wait around and instead took the initiative, winning their first match of the day 3-1 against the winless Epsilon eSports team.

With their ticket to the postseason stamped and ready, Red will now look to ensure that they finish the regular season first in Division A.
Their remaining matches are against Team Kaliber, Team EnVy, and Splyce, and they will clinch the first seed if they win all three.
The CWL Pro League features a total of 16 teams divided into Divisions A and B, with the 8 teams of each group playing each other twice.
While every team receives a base cash prize for participating, the top four teams of each Division qualify for the Playoffs, where a whopping $500,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.
