eFuse announced a strategic partnership with the College CoD league (CCL) to host competitive events this summer.

Efuse has been making strides in competitive esports through its "Pipeline" iniative this year, and this partnership with CCL is only another piece of the puzzle for eFuse.

In an effort to expand its collegiate outreach, eFuse is partnering with the CCL to run two CoD events this summer. The first will be a Summer 8s series ($1k prize pool) and the second will be a CCL Summer Open August 28th-29th ($5k prize pool). The event is meant to help discover top collegiate prospects to help propel their efforts to play at the pro level.

eFuse is acting as a matchmaker for schools in an effort to bolster its "pipeline" where it connects top students with colleges and universities. They offers several services across its website (networking, jobs, portfolio, media, and social posts) but it primarily focuses on solving several issues in collegiate. They are neither the first or the last to tackle these issues, but as the space becomes crowded only the strongest will survive.

CCL is a community run tournament organizer in CoD that has garnered serious praise for its impressive production capabilities. Partnering with CCL is a great move for both parties as it gives CCL more legitimacy (and hopefully opportunities to operate in an official manner in the future) and it gives eFuse a new game to expand coverage into.

"We’re dedicated to helping gamers get discovered. That’s especially true in the college market where a path to pro is nearly unchartered. By partnering with College CoD, we’re helping tomorrow’s esports stars get the visibility they need today. Can’t wait to see these players go off. It’s going to be a great show."

This is a collegiate event and will require players attend full time at a university with an email in either America or Canada. Registration for Summer 8's is open now and the Summer Open will start mid-August. Are you excited to see the collegiate players go at it? Follow along for more collegiate news at Esports.gg
