eFuse Partners with College CoD, Launching Two Summer Events to Help College Players Get Discovered


July 15th, 2021 - This week, eFuse announced a partnership with College CoD to host two events for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, a Summer 8’s Tournament and a Summer Open, with $6,000 in prizing on the line. The two are joining together to showcase and identify the best talent in collegiate Call of Duty throughout elite College CoD tournaments and events.

“We’re dedicated to helping gamers get discovered,” said Matthew Benson, CEO of eFuse. “That’s especially true in the college market where a path to pro is nearly uncharted. By partnering with College CoD, we’re helping tomorrow’s esports stars get the visibility they need today. Can’t wait to tune in - it’s going to be a great show full of impact.”

Together the two will spotlight top talent across professionally produced, high-profile events and custom-written/video content giving gamers the visibility they need to be discovered and develop their path to pro.

"College CoD provides the opportunities our community of dedicated gamers need to showcase their talent, make lasting memories and explore a career in esports," said Jaden Shaw, Founder of College CoD. "eFuse's commitment to the Call of Duty and Warzone community has been exceptional and together, we'll elevate the production, discoverability and competition we see in the collegiate space this summer."

The Collegiate Call of Duty League has completed 3 successful seasons. Each season has seen incremental growth and buy-in from the collegiate community. This past season had 130+ unique schools represented and in total, the league has over 3,600 actively engaged community members, over 180 registered teams and over 150,000 unique viewers. College CoD has received recognition in the gaming community through engagement with professional players/teams, organic engagement generated from events, and from participating talent in challengers and events.

“The 2021 College CoD Summer 8’s” is scheduled for July 29 - August 1st ($1k prize pool), and “The College CoD Summer Open” will be held August 28 - 29 ($5k prize pool). Players can now register for the ‘Summer 8’s’ event by visiting: https://efuse.gg/o/ccl-8s.

College CoD provides an exemplary competitive experience for college students through their games, player engagement, and pursuit of professional-grade services and support.

“College CoD over the last 2 years has been an amazing experience. The CCL provides excellent production value with limited resources and is run in a very professional manner. Most importantly it has allowed me to make new lifelong friends who I would’ve never had the chance to connect with. For that, I will forever be grateful for the CCL and everything they do for the collegiate call of duty scene.”
