A long-awaited update to the highly renowned FPS shooter game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Counter-Strike 2 was recently unveiled by Valve. Now VALVE has given us more information about its esports circuit and has selected PGL to host the inaugural major for the brand-new Counter-Strike 2, which will take place in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The game is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2023, beginning the countdown to its first big release. The CS-2 flagship event will take place between March 17 - March 31, 2024 and will be produced in collaboration with PGL, which has previously participated in various esports tournaments.

PGL has made several impressive feats in CS:GO, including the most-watched CS:GO tournament of all time, the PGL Major Stockholm in 2021, and the most recent PGL CS:GO Major Antwerp 2022, which drew over 20,000 fans to Antwerp's Sportpaleis.

Silviu Stroie, PGL CEO said, "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. 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."

The best 24 Counter-Strike 2 teams will compete in the PGL CS2 Major Denmark 2024. The $1,250,000 grand reward will attract fierce rivalry as teams compete for glory, notoriety, and the coveted Major Champion title. It will be the first Counter-Strike Major to be held in Denmark, a nation with a lengthy and illustrious heritage in CS esports.
