Second Annual CODE Bowl to Feature Call of Duty Competition Between US and UK Military

The Call of Duty Endowment, which identifies and funds organizations that help unemployed veterans find work, will bring back the CODE Bowl this December. This year’s CODE Bowl, to be played on Dec. 11, will see all five branches of the U.S. Department of Defense military branches compete alongside and against its United Kingdom counterparts in an esports event featuring the newly released Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The U.S. Marines, U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Space Force will make its debut in the second installment of the charity event with participation from the U.K’s Army, Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy. These branches will be competing in the event with their own newly formed esports teams. However, it’s not only the two countries’ military esports teams that will be competing, but also some the most recognizable names in streaming talent.

The format of the event, which will start at 10 a.m. PST, will see eight teams led by streamers and influencers that will take their team into competition. The tournament will be broadcast live on Twitch.

The list of teams and their streaming and influencer partners are the U.S. Air Force with Jordan “LEGIQN” Payton and Douglas “Dougisraw” Wolf; U.S. Army with Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff and Kristopher “Swagg” Lamberson; U.S. Marine Corps with Jack “CouRage” Dunlop and Austin “Pamaj” Pamajewon; U.S. Navy with Tyler “TeeP” Polchow and Aydan “Aydan” Conrad; U.S. Space Force with Mason “Symfuhny” Lanier and Jordan “HusKerrs” Thomas; U.K. Army with Vikram “Vikkstar” Singh Barn and Thomas “Tommey” Trewren; U.K. Royal Navy with Emma “C9Emz” (last name unknown) and Ashleigh “AshleighSR” (last name unknown); and the U.K. Royal Air Force with James “Spratt” Spratt and Jaffainc (real name unknown).

The charity event will not only raise money for its cause, but it has also onboarded a couple of sponsors including Ram Trucks and Scuf Controllers. Ram Trucks will be giving away a 2021 Ram 1500 to a veteran who has been recently placed into a job with the endowment’s support.

The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit group founded by Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard.
