Announcing Call of Duty Endowment [C.O.D.E.] Bowl IV
Prepare for another epic C.O.D.E. Bowl IV, taking place on Oct. 5, 2023! Following the Royal Air Force’s comeback victory last year, it’s time for a new champion to emerge as military esports teams from the U.S., U.K., and — for the first time ever — Canada join top Call of Duty® streamers to compete for the coveted trophy and bragging rights for the winning team’s military branch of service.
Presented by USAA, C.O.D.E. Bowl IV celebrates the Endowment’s commitment to placing veterans into high-quality jobs, with over 118,000 placements since 2009.
Watch the tournament on the Call of Duty YouTube, Twitch, Steam, and Facebook channels on Oct. 5, 2023, immediately following Call of Duty: Next, the premier showcase event for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® III Multiplayer, Call of Duty®: Mobile, and Call of Duty: Warzone™! The winning team will take home the C.O.D.E. Bowl Trophy, and 100% of the net proceeds from the tournament will go toward placing more veterans into high-quality jobs.
