Activision has pulled the curtains on the Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship 2022. Players from around the world can compete in the championship, which has a prize pool of more than $2 million. 

The CoD: Mobile World Championship was first introduced in 2020, just months after the game’s global release. The finals of the event, which were supposed to be a LAN event, were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CoD: Mobile World Championship 2021 was also affected by the pandemic with the finals being shifted to an online format. As a result, the competition was split into the East and West to reduce ping disparity between teams from around the world. 

Players will be hoping to see the CoD: Mobile World Championship 2022 being conducted in a successful manner for the first time in the game’s history. 


The format for the championship is similar to the past year’s with five stages starting from the solo play. 

  • Stage one – Solo Play
    • On four weekends between March 31 and April 24, the first stage of the 2022 World Championship will happen.
    • All players are eligible to participate in this stage, which will offer new rewards every week. 
    • Players can play upto 10 ranked matches to accumulate 60 points and advance to stage two on each weekend.
  • Stage two – Team Play
    • The players who make it through stage one will have to form teams and compete in this stage. Top teams from here will advance to the regional qualifiers. 
  • Stage three to five (Regional Qualifiers, Regional Playoffs, and the World Championship Finals)
    • The exact details for these stages haven’t been revealed yet. 
    • The regional qualifiers will feature the top teams from the team play. 
    • The regional qualifiers and playoffs will be played separately in each region. The regional playoffs and the World Championship Finals will be broadcasted in YouTube. 


The regions in the CoD: Mobile World Championship 2022 are as follows: 

  • India
  • Europe
  • Japan
  • North America

These aren’t the only regions in the CoD: Mobile esports roadmap for 2022, but they are the ones who will follow the World Championship’s format. CoD: Mobile esports has a different format in Southeast Asia (SEA) and China with top teams from here advancing to the World Championship Finals, too.
