Published on: 26/10/2018

It has been an excellent year for Counter Strike, but if you still haven’t had enough of the action, you’ll want to take a look at the events we have included in this list.

These five CS:GO events are undoubtedly going to deliver the biggest matchups and the most action before the year ends, so you’ll definitely want to bookmark their schedule dates.

#1 – IEM Chicago 2018

Easily the biggest event remaining this year, IEM Chicago 2018 will see the year end in the same country it started in. With the Boston Major kicking off 2018, it seems fitting to have Chicago end it. But can another North American team claim victory, or will the Europeans take the trophy back home with them?

The full lineup for IEM Chicago 2018 has already been announced. We’ve got an interesting selection:

  • MVP PK
  • AVANGAR
  • North
  • LDLC
  • Astralis
  • BIG
  • FaZe
  • Liquid
  • MIBR
  • NRG
  • NaVi
  • Renegades
  • fnatic
  • mousesports
  • eUnited
  • Luminosity
$250,000 will be on the line and you’ll be able to catch the action from November 6 until November 11.

Another hotly anticipated event to end the year is the BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018 tournament, which will also see a $250,000 prize pool. Only 6 teams will be taking part in this event, all of which are in the upper echelon of Counter Strike. There will be a group stage on day one and then the grand final will follow the day after, with a fun showmatch happening before the grand final.

Here are the teams that are taking part.

  • Astralis
  • NaVi
  • MIBR
  • FaZe
  • NiP

It will be two fun filled days of action from November 2nd to November 3rd.
