Introducing the CWL Sydney Open 1 & 2!
ESL Australia, in partnership with Activision and Playstation 4, are delighted to announce our APAC activity for the Call of Duty World League, Presented by PlayStation®4, as well as details and registration information for the first APAC event of 2017 - the CWL Sydney Open.

ESL Australia will be hosting two APAC events, both taking place in Sydney and open to all Asia-Pacific Call of Duty teams, featuring a total of $60,000 in prize money throughout both events. The first APAC event of 2017, CWL Sydney 1, will give teams a shot at a $30,000 prize pool on offer and all-important CWL Pro Points. These points are the key to qualifying for the CWL Global Pro League beginning in April and for the CWL Championship later in 2017.

CWL Sydney, hosted at the ESL Sydney Studio, will take place over 3 days on March 3rd-5th. All competitors must be 18 years of age or older to participate in this competition. Teams must purchase a team pass ($220 per team), with spectator passes also available for those aged 15+. All tickets can be purchased here. CWL Sydney will host Asia Pacific’s most elite Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare teams, competing for a first place prize of 10,000 CWL Pro Points and the lion's share of the $30,000 prize pool. As an added bonus, the top two finishing teams from the SONY Call of Duty Asia Championship, UnVeiL.NoVa and RamPaGe Gaming, will be attending the first APAC CWL Event, increasing the competition for the event.


Later in the year, the CWL Sydney Open 2 will take place on May 12-14, again hosted in the ESL Sydney Studio and offering up another $30,000 in prize money.

  • Competition is restricted to players in the Asia-Pacific Region aged 18 or older on or before the first day of competition. Spectators are restricted to those aged 15 or older. Photo ID will be requested on arrival. NO ID = NO ENTRY.

The CWL Sydney Open 1 will consist of a 16 Team Double Elimination Championship Bracket, preceded by pool play where all registered teams will be split into 4 equal pools. Pool play will be seeded by CWL Pro Points. Pro Points at the time of registration cut off (11.59 PM AEDT March 1st 2017) will be used to seed pools. Pool play will begin 10am AEDT Friday March 3rd.
