Anaheim will also host the Call of Duty™ Endowment CWL
All-Star game as voted by fans, featuring eight players from each of the
top teams currently competing at the CWL Pro League Stage 2. As part of
the All-Star game celebration, the Call of Duty World League will make a
$10,000 donation on behalf of the winning team to the Call of Duty
Endowment, the official charity of the CWL, whose aim is to combat
veteran unemployment and underemployment by helping veterans find
high-quality jobs after their service.

“We are thankful to CWL for their invaluable partnership, which only
continues to grow,” said Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director of the Call
of Duty Endowment. “Their efforts and donations allow the Endowment to
help many veterans find high-quality careers, which can be life-altering
as they transition back into civilian life. We want to thank CWL for
their continued support, without which we would not be on track to meet
our goal of placing 50,000 veterans into meaningful employment by the
end of 2019.”

Fans can watch the broadcast action online on MLG.com/CallofDuty
and Twitch.tv/CallofDuty.
Matches will also be available to watch on PlayStation®4 via the in-game Call
