MLG has announced their next Call of Duty World League event, MLG Orlando. The event will take place from August 5th through August 7th at The Loews Royal Pacific at Universal Studios Orlando.

We are excited to announce that Major League Gaming (MLG), in collaboration with the Call of Duty® World League, Presented by PlayStation®4, will be hosting the Call of Duty® MLG Orlando Open. Held at The Loews Royal Pacific at Universal Studios Orlando on August 5-7, the event will feature up to 96 amateur teams and 12 North American CWL teams competing head-to-head in Call of Duty®: Black Ops III on PlayStation®4 for a $100,000 Prize Pool and more than 2,500 CWL Pro Points. As part of the Call of Duty MLG Orlando Open, players can earn CWL Pro Points as a chance to qualify for the highly-anticipated Call of Duty Championship, Presented by PlayStation®4, which will take place later this year.
The format of this event will be the same as MLG Anaheim. The 96 amateur teams will compete in a Double Elimination Open Bracket. The final four teams will advance to Pool Play, where the 12 CWL Pro Division teams will be separated into four different pools based upon CWL Pro ranking. From there, each team will play one match against another team in their pool. The final pool play standing will determine the team’s placing in a Double Elimination Championship Bracket.
