The upcoming Counter-Strike 2 is set to revolutionise the Counter-Strike esports scene, and PGL has already drawn up plans to host the first-ever professional tournament for the new game.
PGL to host Counter-Strike 2 Major Copenhagen
The PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 is set to take place from March 17-31 in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen and will have the honour of being the first-ever Counter-Strike 2 tournament.
That's not the only first for the new event either, as the Major will also be the first Counter-Strike Major to ever take place in Denmark, a country with "deep roots to the game's history," according to PGL.
Much like the CS:GO Majors, the Copenhagen Major will feature 24 teams, with a grand prize pool of $1,250,000.
"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," said PGL CEO Silviu Stroie. "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."
Counter-Strike 2 was finally unveiled last week, with Valve showcasing several new features that are bound to revolutionise the game's esports scene. Among other things, the game's smoke grenades have been radically reworked, offering players a new competitive edge that will no doubt provide some incredible results at the Copenhagen Major.
But we're not quite done with CS:GO just yet. The game's final Major, the BLAST.tv Paris Major, is due to begin on May 8, offering fans one last look at CS:GO before its free replacement takes the stage next year.
