PGL and StarLadder Unveil Tournament Plans for 2025

The upcoming 2025 season promises a plethora of tournaments in the competitive gaming landscape. Valve's decision to terminate the business partnerships between teams and tournament organizers for the 2025 season has catalyzed the return of two prominent Counter-Strike operators to the forefront of the scene.

PGL, renowned for hosting numerous Majors, made a significant announcement during the PGL Copenhagen Major Grand Final broadcast, revealing plans for 11 tournaments to be conducted in 2025 and 2026.

The Romanian tournament organizer attributed its reentry into the Counter-Strike market, beyond the scope of Majors, to the modifications in CS2 licensing regulations and the imposition of restrictions on conflicts of interest between tournament organizers and teams.

Outlined below are the scheduled tournaments for PGL in 2025 and 2026:

  • PGL CS2 Tournament #1: February 10-24

  • PGL CS2 Tournament #2: March 31 - April 14

  • PGL CS2 Tournament #3: May 3-19

  • PGL CS2 Tournament #4: September 29 - October 13

StarLadder's Resurgence

Yesterday, another prominent tournament organizer, StarLadder from Ukraine, announced its intention to host at least four tournaments in 2025 and 2026. Each tournament will accommodate 16 teams, with qualifying events taking place globally.

With 18 successful seasons from 2012 to 2019, StarLadder aims to revive its popular tournaments, which have seen esteemed teams like NAVI, FaZe, NIP, and MOUZ emerge victorious in the past.

The scheduled seasons, spanning from 19 to 22, are as follows:

  • Season 19: May 26 – June 1, 2025
