The Clash of Clans World Championship 2020 has just been unveiled by Supercell and ESL. The tournament will feature a prize pool of $1M.

The format of the tournament is similar to last year’s. Teams will have to participate in monthly in-game clan war leagues or ESL Play Cups to qualify for the monthly offline qualifiers. The winner of the qualifier will book a ticket to the Clash of Clans World Finals 2020.

The top four clans from the clan war leagues and the top four from the ESL Play Cups will be participating in the monthly offline qualifier at the ESL Arena Katowice.

Here is the complete schedule for the year:

Qualifier one

  • Feb. 1-10: Clan War League
  • Feb. 12-14: ESL Play Cups
  • March 27-29: Offline Qualifier One
