Power League Gaming (PLG) is the premiere eSports operator for the Middle East and North Africa. With close working ties to leading videogame publishers, and over 60 international brands, PLG are the dominant force when it comes to eSports cultivation in the MENA region.

No one does eSports in the region like they do, and now that they have cemented themselves as the top players, things are about to get even more interesting.

In partnership with Sony PlayStation, Activision and Red Entertainment, PLG present the official Middle East Call of Duty World League Tournament.

Teams of 4 can compete in online and live events around the region, that will culminate with 8 teams advancing to the CWL Middle East Finals held at the PLG Grand Slam on Yas Island, UAE, for a prize pool of $10,000.

This is where you can submit your team for the online qualifier open to teams of 4 (plus one registered reserve stand-in) in the following 9 different countries: Egypt / Kuwait / Kingdom of Saudi Arabia / Qatar / Lebanon / Oman / UAE / Jordan / Bahrain. All players in a team need to have their own PlayStation 4 console with valid PSN Plus subscription with the game, and be national or official resident of that country (with valid residency papers), eligible to fly to Dubai (have a passport with a validity of more than a year) for the Middle East Finals in November, and STRICTLY 18+ years of age at the time of entry to the competition for a team to compete in this tournament. The tournament will run on PlayStation 4, with COD eSports rules (as of the latest May 2016 update)
