CDL Major 3 Preview: Bracket, Schedule, Prize Pool & How to Watch

Call of Duty Esports Is Back on LAN This Weekend!

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of CDL Major 3, hosted by fan-favorites OpTic Texas.

CDL Major 3 will take place at the Esports Stadium Arlington, in Arlington Texas, on March 9-12. There’s $500,000 on the line, plus CDL points which are vital for Champs qualification.

With OpTic Texas running the event, we can expect plenty of exciting surprises throughout. The hosts clutched up in their final qualifier match against Atlanta FaZe to book a place in Winners Bracket and will be feeling confident.

Most tickets are sold out, but you can still find Thursday tickets and Festival Passes here.

CDL Major 3 Bracket

All four Winners Bracket Round 1 matches are set up to be close fights. In the Elimination Bracket, Minnesota Rokkr will be desperate to end their long losing streak and prove they are as good as they should be on paper.

Preview

OpTic has a difficult but winnable opener against Boston Breach. They’ve just shown they can beat FaZe, and if they can get some momentum going they could really give the home crowd something to cheer about. However, both Hardpoints ended up closer than they should have been on Sunday so they’ll need to tighten things up before the LAN.

FaZe and Thieves have had some crazy head-to-heads recently and meet again in Round 1. If LA Thieves come out on top, they’ll fancy their chances of going all the way to the Championship Final.

The Elimination Bracket teams are all struggling right now and not many fans will predict a long run from any of them. The Royal Ravens upset Toronto on Saturday and will be hoping to build on that.
