- Advertisement -

CSGO Majors are back on the menu and the fans couldn’t be more excited. After getting a breathtaking CSGO Major in the form of PGL Stockholm 2021, which broke all viewership records, Valve went back to their policy of 2 CSGO Majors a year. The first of these will be PGL Antwerp Major which will kick off from 9th May 2022 and run until 22nd May 2022.

Much like the last CSGO Major, there will be 24 teams in attendance at PGL Antwerp. 

8 teams will qualify as Legends, 8 as Challengers and 8 as Contenders. Based on the results from the previous CSGO Major – PGL Stockholm, the slot distribution in the different stages is as follows:

  • LEGENDS – 7 Europe & 1 Americas
  • CHALLENGERS – 6 Europe & 2 Americas
  • CONTENDERS – 3 Europe, 3 Americas & 2 Asia-Pacific

As per the format, a limited number of teams will be invited to the RMR tournaments while the rest will have to qualify through open qualifiers.

The prize pool of PGL Antwerp is back to $1 million, after being $2 million for PGL Stockholm 2021. Stockholm had a bigger prize pool as CSGO Majors were returning after more than 2 years. The winner of PGL Antwerp will take home $500,000 in prize money.

PGL is also responsible for hosting the RMR events for PGL Antwerp,on LAN. Regional Major Rankings or RMR events are the only way possible now, for teams to qualify for the next Major. There are no direct invites for any of the teams to the Major and even the defending champions Natus Vincere will need to qualify through the RMR.

The first stage of the RMR kicked off on Monday with PGL Antwerp Major Americas RMR taking place first. There are 6 spots up for grabs for the Americas, for which 16 teams will be locking horns. The top 6 will confirm their spot at the Major while the remaining ones will be knocked out. 

Because of only 1 North American team making it to the Champions Stage of the previous Major (FURIA), Americas will have only 1 Legends spot. There will be 2 challenger and 3 contender spots for the Antwerp CSGO Major.

As things stand, FURIA and MIBR have already booked their spot at PGL Antwerp after going 3-0 on the first 2 days. The two Brazilian teams will compete against each other for one final time to determine which of them will be going to PGL Antwerp as Legends, as only the team placing 1st at the PGL Antwerp Americas RMR has a legends spot.

There are 4 more spots up for grabs which will be determined in the next 2 days.
