It seems that it's now a case of "when" and not "if" live esports competitions are cancelled, with events all over the world shutting their doors to public. A common tactic is taking the competition online, and that's exactly what the folks behind the Call of Duty League are planning. Here's the crux of the statement they just put out.
After careful review and working in close collaboration with our teams, we are shifting all currently scheduled 2020 Call of Duty League live events to online-only competition, effective immediately. For details on previously ticketed events, please visit host team websites and follow their social channels.
The new online-only matches will be broadcast live to fans. Dates will be announced shortly, along with tune-in details.
Call of Duty League has seen firsthand the power of our live events in our inaugural season, and will return to city-based competition in front of live audiences as soon as it is safe and logistically possible.
Watch this space for more details soon, and hopefully, things will be back to normal sooner rather than later.
