You have until January 22nd to sign up and at least two teammates must reside in the circuit you are signing up for. Stage 1 of the CWL National Circut begins on January 26th.
Activision has plans for another two regions which are Brazil and Mexico and they hope to include both of these during Stage 2 of the circuit and registration for these will begin in February.
