Esports fans, mark your calendars because the Call of Duty League (CDL) is set to return in grand style in 2024. Oxygen Esports‘ Boston Breach has just announced that it will host the eagerly anticipated first Major tournament of the 2024 season. This thrilling event is slated to take place at the iconic MGM Music Hall at Fenway in Boston, Massachusetts, from January 24 to 28, 2024.
This isn’t the first time the Boston Breach has stepped into the spotlight as a CDL Major tournament host. Just one year ago, they successfully organised the second Major of the 2023 season. Now, in 2024, they’re partnering with the renowned events company Live Nation to ensure that this year’s event surpasses all expectations.
The 2024 Major promises to be nothing short of epic, with Oxygen Esports revealing that they anticipate a staggering 15,000 guests to attend the event, making it the largest LAN tournament of the CDL season.
But that’s not all—in addition to the Call of Duty League Major 1, Boston Breach will also play host to the Call of Duty Challengers tournament. Featuring an impressive lineup of 96 teams from around the world, the Challengers tournament will see them battling it out for a jaw-dropping $75,000 prize.
An important detail to keep in mind is that the Challengers tournament will unfold at the Citizen’s House of Blues Boston, providing a unique esports experience for those in attendance.
Owned by Oxygen Esports, the Boston Breach is a prominent esports organisation that also oversees the Boston Uprising in the Overwatch League. Their operations extend across various titles, including VALORANT, Rocket League, and Rainbow Six.
The merger between Oxygen Esports and Boston Uprising in 2021 allowed the organisation to claim the coveted Call of Duty League slot, which was left vacant after the merger of OpTic Gaming and Envy Gaming. The Boston Breach has been on a remarkable journey since, with their standout achievement being a commendable third-place finish at the COD League 2022 Stage 2 Major.
Murph Vandervelde, the President and Co-Founder of Oxygen Esports expressed his excitement about the upcoming event, stating, “Oxygen Esports and the Boston Breach have established Boston as a destination for esports, and this tournament fortifies our position in this ever-growing industry. Being the largest esports event that has ever been hosted in Boston, diehard fans and those curious about the world of professional esports can expect a weekend full of excitement and unique experiences.”
