Call of Duty: Mobile 2021 World Championship FAQ

 

Will any competitors be traveling for Stage 5?

For the Western Finals, the qualifying teams from the Stage 4 European finals, Call of Duty: Mobile Masters Europe, and the teams located in Brazil from the Stage 4 Latin American Finals will travel to a centralized location in Mexico. Mexico was chosen for a variety of reasons, including its proximity to Call of Duty: Mobile central servers located in Mexico City, Mexico and Dallas, Texas, as well as in consideration of travel restrictions currently in place globally. Qualified teams residing in the United States, Canada, and Mexico will not be required to travel to the competition venue for Stage 5.
