The teams and players of the Call of Duty League and Activision have reached a new revenue deal. This new deal will allow players and teams to earn more revenue while also adding in gaurantees.

“While the Call of Duty League’s popularity continues to grow, evident by this past season where we saw the highest viewership in history and record-breaking attendance at our in-person events, we are redoubling efforts on the business side to ensure the success and longevity of competitive Call of Duty,” Daniel Tsay, GM of Call of Duty Esports, said.

“For the better part of a year, we’ve been working with Team Owners on a new approach that sets us up for mutual success. Today, I am excited to share details from our updated team deal structure to help secure the longevity of competitive Call of Duty.”

As part of the new deal, all outstanding entry fees are being eliminated as well as refunds being made to teams that have paid. In addition to the fees, teams “will earn increased revenue tied to the sale of their in-game merchandise” as well as Champs bundles, increased subsidy amounts for hosting in-person events, and a two-year minimum revenue guarantee.

“Our teams have a huge role in shaping that future and by investing more into them with these changes, we hope to continue propelling the CDL forward,” Tsay said.
