ESHUB’s Call of Duty: WWII LAN tournament in Blackpool has been cancelled due to lack of interest from teams.
Although the venue was booked, staff was hired and gaming equipment was ordered, not enough teams were signed up to justify holding the tournament.
The Esports Hub announced the cancellation via Twitter.

The tournament was set to take place on August 10, a week before the Call of Duty Championships in Columbus, Ohio.
It was unlikely that teams playing in CoD Champs would have attended ESHUB’s LAN, but a number of EU amateur teams that may have had interest were still competing for a Champs spot through National Circuits and the LCQ.
Not all hope is lost for EU based CoD fans in search of a LAN event, the Esports Hub announced that their cancellation is actually a postponement and the LAN will be shifted to Black Ops 4 instead.
With the excitement of a new game and a date far away from the biggest CoD event of the year, ESHUB is expecting a better turnout.
The Black Ops 4 tournament will be held at Norbreck Castle in Blackpool, UK at a date that is to be determined.
