In The Know and Misfits Gaming are teaming up once again for ITK Bowl 2021, a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War tournament where professional athletes are paired up with professional gamers from the Call of Duty League and beyond. The event will kick off on Feb. 5 at 5:30 p.m. EST, right here on this page.

All competitors will be playing from the safety of their homes or team houses, in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. The tournament will be done in the 2v2 Gunfight Mode, where duos face off against each other with identical loadouts, one life per round and no regenerating health. Our teams will need skill, caution and coordination in order to succeed.

Each team will consist of one pro athlete and one pro gamer, as they duke it out in a single-elimination format.

Here’s a full list of the individual competitors:
