PGL to host $2 million CS:GO Stockholm Major this fall

PGL is stepping back into the CS:GO scene this year with a new tournament that will feature a $2 million prize pool, the largest in CS:GO history.

The PGL Stockholm Major will be run from Oct. 23 to Nov. 7, the tournament organizer announced today. The playoffs will be held as a LAN event at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden from Nov. 4 to 7. The company will still abide by all safety and health guidelines for the event, meaning that the in-person portion could be changed if the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing.

This is set to be the first CS:GO Major since the StarLadder Berlin Major, which concluded in September 2019. PGL also claims that this event will be the first CS:GO Major to broadcast in 4k 60 FPS quality and will include some form of Augmented Reality elements, a new custom HUD, and other features.

PGL has hosted or provided some form of support for dozens of CS:GO tournaments since it started running them in November 2013.

“First of all, my colleagues and I are passionate fans of CS,” PGL CEO Silviu Stroie said. “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.”
