PGL Major Stockholm 2021 – Teams, Schedule, Ticket Info & Betting Tips
After two long years with no Major in CSGO, we will finally get what we desperately crave: The CSGO Major.
PGL is to host the major in Stockholm. Though they do not have a deep history of hosting CSGO events, they have previously held a major. PGL Major Kraków 2017 was the tournament that saw a Zeus-lead Gambit to winning it all. With iconic moments such as the Dosia 200IQ nade on Inferno, it was certainly one for the books.
Back at the StarLadder Berlin Major of 2019 saw Astralis take their 3rd Major in a row, being the first team to do so. Many thought this absolutely solidified them as the greatest team of all time. Since then, however, the scene has shifted completely. With 2 years of online play there were many mis-steps. Cheating, match fixing and stagnation of the game with the current save-heavy meta CT side.
As of late, there has been a lot of excitement and promise. It comes at a good time as the scene needs more hype than ever if the scene is to survive and thrive.
PGL Major Stockholm Teams
Here is a list of the teams that will be attending the Major. If you wish to participate in CSGO betting it will be important to know who the competition is.
The teams were chosen through the number of Regional Major Ranking points. The top 8 received a slot in the Legends grouping who received a bye through the first round. The Challengers were the second group of 8 teams to qualify. The remaining 8 teams had to qualify through the ESL-run regional qualifiers to receive the final slots in the Contenders group. They, along with the Challengers, will have the longest run through the major if they hope to win.
