Shortly after Valve revealed that BLAST Paris would be the last CS:GO Major to take place, another tournament organizer has just revealed the date and location of the first Counter-Strike 2 Major.
The event will take place in Copenhagen in Royal Arena from the 17th of March until the 31st in 2024. It will be the first time in history, that Copenhagen will host a Counter-Strike Major.
- One of the greatest games of all time is marching to another chapter, and we couldn't be happier to host probably the most important Major of the franchise in recent years. Denmark has a rich esports heritage, and we are excited to bring the world's best Counter-Strike teams to Copenhagen to compete for the game's most prestigious title. Our ambition for PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 is to break the game's all-time viewership records, Silviu Stroie, CEO of PGL says in a press statement.
The prize pool will remain at $1.250.000 despite the big gap between the BLAST Paris Major in May this year and the PGL Copenhagen Major in March 2024.
