A statement from the Rokkr said
“We will share more details soon, including how the Call of Duty League family plans to pay tribute to George Floyd and dedicate this Home Series to supporting the fight for social justice and the rights of black and minority communities, as well as organizations assisting with rebuilding efforts both in Minneapolis and nationwide. We have been working closely with CDL since last week on how we can use the event to raise money for charitable organizations supporting racial justice and community rebuilding efforts. Scheduling was part of those discussions but the decision was made in the past 24 hours.”
CDL Minnesota will now be played on the weekend of June 12th to 14th with the top five teams in the league all attending. Atlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, Chicago Huntsmen, Minnesota Rokkr and Florida Mutineers.
