The Call of Duty World League National Circuit is nearly upon us, and now we finally know which teams will be competing in Stage One.

Debuting in the WWII season, the CWL National Circuit will feature eight separate national leagues, which contain eight teams each. The eight teams will play each other in a round-robin format to determine the top four teams, who will move on to the single-elimination playoffs. The bottom two teams in each circuit will have to face the two best non-circuit teams in relegation to earn their spots back for Stage Two.

The eight circuits in Stage One are the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom/Ireland, France/Belgium, Germany/the Netherlands, Spain/Portugal, Italy, and Australia/New Zealand.

At 6pm ET earlier today, the signups for the CWL National Circuit closed and the top eight teams in each circuit were determined by pro points.
