The Call of Duty Endowment has announced the second annual C.O.D.E. Bowl, presented by USAA.. The Endowment's charity event takes place on December 11th, and brings together top streamers and teams from all U.S Department of Defence military branches and UK branches to raise awareness and funds for veteran employment.
All five U.S. Department of Defence military branches along with the UK military will be getting stuck into Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with members from their own esports teams. Popular streamers joining these teams include Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, Spratt, with more to be announced.
The Bowl includes three new teams from the US Marine Corps, US Air Force, and the US Space Force. The United Kingdom's British Army, Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy, will also be joining in. This will actually be the first trans-Atlantic military esports competition to feature these branches, and each team has been coached by Call Of Duty League pros, so it should be quite a show.
"We are proud to have the United States and the United Kingdom militaries come together to participate in the C.O.D.E. Bowl," said Dan Goldenberg, executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment in a press release.
"This will be the first time all military branches have come together for a spirited eSports competition with the added bonus of raising awareness for veteran employment and we couldn't be more excited to partner with USAA to make this happen."
The C.O.D.E. Bowl takes place at 6pm UK time on, December 11th, and will be broadcast live on the official Call Of Duty YouTube and Twitch channels. ere, you'll be able to watch all eight teams playing through the latest Call Of Duty in a tournament-style competition. All proceeds from the event will go towards placing veterans into "high-quality jobs".
The Call of Duty Endowment has funded the placement of more than 77,000 vets into high quality employment since its inception and aims to place 100,000 veterans into meaningful jobs by 2024. You can find out more about the charity and its work here.
