Maiden edition of the ACDL officially kicks off


The inaugural round of the African Call of Duty League (ACDL) began on November 5, with eight of the continent’s best Call of Duty (COD) teams competing for a $500 prize pool.

The ACDL is Africa‘s first Call of Duty League, with eight of the continent’s best teams competing in a 4v4 double elimination battle on several maps and modes every weekend in November to become the ultimate Call of Duty African champion.

The competition opened with the first-ever inconclusive result, with Ugandan esports organisation Arudem Gaming tying 1-1 with Nemesis. After defeating Tonka 2-1 in Game 2, Ghanaian esports giants, PlayProvince advanced to Round 2. Skids defeated Swerv Only 2-0 in Game 3 to advance to the competition’s second round. Yollo ZA would be eliminated in the loser bracket after falling to Skare 2-0.

Because the tournament is a double-elimination event, the defeated teams will advance to the ACDL Losers Bracket, which means Tonka, Swerv Only, and Yollo ZA are still in contention to become the competition’s first-ever champion.
