Toronto Ultra is the official Call of Duty League franchise team of Toronto, Canada. It is owned and operated by OverActive Media. It is the successor to Splyce, which had competed continuously in Call of Duty between 2015 and 2019. The team's main rival is Minnesota RØKKR, who they play in the "Battle of the North".
The CDL Toronto Franchise was officially announced by Activision Blizzard in their first quarter 2019 results as one of the first five Franchise League teams. Wi5dom12 was announced as the team's general manager on August 13, with MarkyB joining as strategic coach 2 weeks later on August 26. On October 24, at their launch party, the team branding was revealed as the Toronto Ultra and they announced their initial ten man roster of Loony, Methodz, Brack, Lucky, MettalZ, CleanX, Classic, Cammy, Bance, and Mayhem. The first starting roster of Loony, Methodz, MettalZ, Classic, and Cammy was announced on January 21, 2020.
At Launch Weekend, Ultra defeated Seattle Surge in map five before losing to home team Minnesota RØKKR 1-3. The following week in London, English player Bance was switched onto the starting roster for MettalZ. The team did not fair any better as they were beaten handily by London Royal Ravens and Paris Legion, knocked out in last place. The team stuck with the same roster for Week 3 and earned the same result - losing both matches and getting eliminated by Paris Legion for a second straight last place finish. Leading up to Week 5, the Ultra added MettalZ back into the starting lineup, replacing Loony. For the first time since Launch Weekend, the team won a series by defeating Florida. After that series, however, the went on to lose versus Dallas Empire and also their rematch against Florida Mutineers. On Twitter before Week 7, Loony's girlfriend claimed he was being "held hostage" in Toronto because he was not able to return home even though he was no longer on the starting lineup. Despite the distraction, the new lineup continued to improve by advancing out of the group stage for the first time after defeating New York Subliners and Minnesota RØKKR. They lost to OpTic Gaming Los Angeles in the semifinal but seemed to have finally established a consistent starting roster to improve with.
This established roster would immediately be thrown back into discord as in the week leading up to Week 9, CleanX was rumored to have been added to the starting roster to replace Classic not due to in game performances, but because Classic left Toronto to visit a sick relative. The team did not scrim while he was gone. He returned in time for the weekend and took his spot back. The went on to lose 3-1 to LA Guerrillas and 3-0 to the Huntsmen. To make things more confusing, CleanX officially joined the starting roster just days after the event and a day before Week 10. This would mark the first time in CDL history that a team fielded a roster with players from five different countries. After narrowly losing to Atlanta FaZe, the Ultra beat up on OpTic Gaming 3-0 in one of the most dominant series of the season including a 250-49 Hackney Yard hardpoint win. New York Subliners would knock them out in the next round. Classic replaced MettalZ in Week 11 as the revolving door of roster changes continued. They beat Atlanta FaZe 3-2 to get out of the group stage but then lost to New York Subliners in the semifinals. In the final week of the season, Ultra's Home Series, they took the event by storm and beat the top three teams attending the event, Chicago, Dallas, and Atlanta, to win the event in an incredible grand final. They become the third team to win their own home series, joining Atlanta FaZe and New York Subliners. The 50 CDL points earned from winning boosted the Ultra all the way up into the winners bracket for Champs at 7th place with 120 CDL Points.

|Toronto Ultra: Our Story|
|When we were thinking through what to call ourselves, our minds travelled through a galaxy of possibilities. Animals, historical connections, tough guy references, and even deep sounding monikers. But in the end, we felt we were just trying too hard.
We're Ultra, and like Toronto, we love that what we mean is whatever you represent. Proud, humble, smooth, or loud — whatever you are, Ultra is just the beginning of it. You fill in the rest.
Our logo is a representation of just that. We’re bringing Bellwoods' White Squirrel to the world's view. To us — it’s a show of our cities character. A symbol that even the smallest parts of what make us who we are, are worth celebrating.
Cementing our spirit — our bright colours and bold wordmark are anything but dull. But then, we’ve never looked to blend in — we’re more than happy to stand out, and stand tall.
