PGL host the first Major after a two-year break

The first Major in two years will have the largest prize pool in the CS:GO history and will run from October 23 – November 7.

PGL will host the next CS:GO Major in Stockholm, Sweden, the organizers have announced. The event will occur between October 23rd and November 7th of 2021, if all safety conditions to hold live competitive tournaments are met by that time.

The event organizers promise that the Major will be streamed in 4K resolution, which will be the first ever Major event to do so, and that it is preparing innovative augmented reality elements as well as other brand-new features for the broadcast. The qualified teams will fight for a massive $2 million prize pool, the biggest in the CS:GO history.

“First of all, my colleagues and I are passionate fans of CS. We grew up and watched this game getting bigger and bigger, just at the same pace as our development as a company. We have timeless memories with our past Counter-Strike shows, and honestly, we owe a lot to this game, as players, and as a company. We believe that this community deserves the best product this franchise has ever seen. Our goal is to celebrate the game in the best way possible, and we will work hard for this,” PGL CEO Silviu Stroie said in a statement.

This marks the first Major-related news since early December, when Valve decided to cancel its plans to organize a Major in May of 2021 and revealed that it is looking to host the next tournament in the fall, in Europe. At the moment, it’s unclear how the spots at PGL Major Stockholm will be decided and, if the system remains in place, whether more RMR events will be run before the Major itself starts in October.
