The video game publisher, Activision Blizzard, is in charge of the professional Call of Duty League, recently asked owners to have the 2021 season played in a central location. The company is pushing for a bubble type environment that is similar to what other sports leagues such as the NBA have moved to because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In order to pull this off, all of the teams from the leagues would need to relocate for the season to compete. Dallas and Las Vegas were the top two cities listed as possible locations for this type of league environment. This suggestion was not the only proposal being considered. Owners offered several suggestions of what to do for next year.
Many owners were for the bubble environment idea, but there were concerns about contract provisions and concerns about the fact that the Dallas Empire currently has a home in Dallas, which is not fair if the city is chosen to host. Some contract provisions for players include where staff and players live during training camps and during the season.
With some of the contracts already signed by players for the new season, teams would need to revise the contracts if a move to Vegas or Dallas occurs.

Now, although I mostly cover technology news on the frontpage, I have been a gamer since the days of the Pentium and Athlon era, so, naturally I follow the gaming scene, as well as esports and everything surrounding it. Because of that I also opened up the gaming news category that will feature similar content to this, so do check it out.
