Nerd Street has created a global list of the upcoming esports championships for 2024. Here are the ones in the USA and Canada (as well as one that might be here).
It’s a new year, which means a new slate of esports tournaments and events to look forward to. The Counter-Strike 2 and Call of Duty calendars are already pretty robust, and we know of a handful of events in League of Legends, VALORANT and Rainbow Six. We’re still waiting to see what’s on deck for Rocket League, Halo, Dota 2 and Overwatch 2. For now, here’s a preview of some of the biggest esports tournaments and events in 2024.
CDL Major 1 - Call of Duty - Jan. 25-28 – Boston, Massachusetts
The first Call of Duty League Major of the year will take place in Boston. A couple weeks of qualifiers have already taken place in December, and there will be two more weeks of qualifiers in January leading into the Major. Unsurprisingly, the always-in-contention Atlanta FaZe and defending champion New York Subliners are both undefeated in qualifiers. Surprisingly, the revamped and rebranded Miami Heretics also are 3-0. All 12 CDL teams will be at the Major, but records during qualifiers will determine seeding.
CDL Major 2 - Call of Duty - March 21-24 -- Miami, Florida
If the Miami Heretics continue winning like they have during Major 1 qualifiers, then the crowd should be hyped up as they host their first-ever Major. We’ll see who the contenders are after the results of Major 1.
CDL Major 3 - Call of Duty - May 16-19 -- Toronto, Canada
Toronto will once again host a CDL Major, and the Toronto Ultra should be a contender to lift a Major trophy at home.
CDL Major 4 - Call of Duty - June 20-23 -- Charlotte, North Carolina
The newly relocated Royal Ravens will host the final CDL Major of the year. We’ll see who the contenders are after the results of the first three Majors.
CDL Champs - Call of Duty - Location TBD
We don’t know the dates or location of CDL Champs this year, but it’ll likely take place in July and/or August. As for a location, Los Angeles has frequently been the host, but Champs was held in Vegas last year. The New York Subliners are the reigning CDL Champs.
