How can I watch it?
It’s never been a better time to get stuck into the competitive esports world (especially in today’s current climate), and Twitch Rivals and Activision Blizzard are making it as easy as possible to keep in the loop with all the nail-biting action. Not only that, but the streamers all compete from their own homes and set ups and given the current climate this is brilliant news as we all try to stay safe.
Available to watch online from your computer, tablet or mobile device, all you need to do is keep your eyes on the Twitch Rivals page to tune into the tournament.

Chill out, switch off from the outside world and watch the first ever Call of Duty: Warzone esports tournament from the comfort of your own home. We hope to see you there!
