In addition to the Call of Duty League trophy being added as a real-world (and towering) element within Call of Duty: Warzone, this first-of-its-kind esports integration will honor the 2020 Call of Duty League champions, the Dallas Empire. As part of the celebration, Dallas Empire’s logo will rest at the base of the statue, while massive banners featuring the portraits and names of its 2020 championship-winning roster will appear above the Verdansk Stadium entrance.
