With the Major IV qualifiers behind us, we can turn our attention to the fourth and final Call of Duty League major tournament of the 2022 season. The fourth major, hosted by the New York Subliners in Brooklyn, New York is set to be one of the most entertaining weekends of the year. Every team — except for one — is fighting for CDL Points to try and secure their spot at Champs on Aug. 4. Only the top eight teams following the tournament will make the Champs bracket. Of course, all 12 teams in attendance are also after the $200,000 grand prize that Major IV offers. However, before fans can go predicting who will win the event, they need to know how to watch Major IV.
This tournament keeps the same format as the three previous majors from this season. The action begins on Thursday of this week, July 14, and ends on Sunday, July 17. The top eight teams from the qualifiers will start in the winner’s bracket while the bottom four teams begin in the loser’s bracket. The tournament is double-elimination for the winner’s bracket and single-elimination for the loser’s. Every match is a best-of-five, with the exception of the grand final, which is a best-of-nine to determine the winner. Fans can see the full bracket for Major IV here.
On Thursday, July 14, fans can start watching the four winner’s bracket matches at 1:30 PM EST. This is different from previous events, which began at 3 PM EST. However, after community feedback, mostly from EU fans, the CDL is starting the action each day at 1:30 PM EST.
The full schedule for Major IV is viewable below.
IT'S ABOUT TO BE MADNESS!

It should be noted that all match times are subject to change. With the state of the Call of Duty: Vanguard servers and the process of running an event, fans should expect some delays in-between matches and even in-between maps during a series. As we saw over this past weekend, these delays can last up to two hours; hopefully, with this event being on LAN, those delays will be minimal.
As always, fans can tune into the action on the Call of Duty League’s YouTube channel. There will also be a co-stream on the official COD YouTube channel. Other than that, there’s no other official way to watch the event unless you’re there in Brooklyn.
