Call of Duty League franchise Miami Heretics will host the 2024 Call of Duty League Major II alongside esports and gaming festival GAMERGY.
The tournament’s grand final will take place on March 24th 2024 at GAMERGY’s ‘main stadium’ in Miami, Florida.
GAMERGY’s first edition in the US will run from March 21st to 24th, featuring a 118,000 sq ft exhibition area and a main stadium that features esports competition. Further details on the festivals location where not given.
Organised by GGtech Entertainment and MECENAS Media, GAMERGY Miami looks to offer a variety of content, including university esports, competition areas for amateur and professional players, as well as spaces for meeting influencers and musical performances.
GAMERGY is an esports gaming event series hosted by event organiser IFEMA Madrid in collaboration with esports company GGTech Entertainment. Since its establishment in 2021, GAMERGY has delivered over 20 esports and gaming festival-like events in countries such as Spain, Argentina and Mexico.
In June, GGTech Entertainment secured $12.4m (~£9.93m) in investment to support its entry into North America. Prior to the investment, the company had also acquired UK-based university esports organisation NUEL.
Team Heretics is a Spanish esports organisation founded in 2016. The company currently has rosters in League of Legends, VALORANT, and Call of Duty. Its Call of Duty League franchise, formerly Florida Mutineers, rebranded into Miami Heretics as Team Heretics became an equity partner of the team in August.
The Call of Duty League Major II will be the second tournament of the game’s 2024 competitive season. Its predecessor will take place in January and will be hosted by Oxygen Esports’ Call of Duty League franchise Boston Breach.
Antonio Catena, president of Heretics Holding, commented on the upcoming Call of Duty League Major II: “Our entry into the Call of Duty League and to give back to our fans the competition in a game that is part of the club’s history was a dream come true.
“We have come to the league to contribute everything we can and organizing this Major in Miami, the city we represent, hand in hand with a strategic partner such as GGTech will give a leap in quality to everything we have done so far”
