9Pandas Removed From PGL Copenhagen CS2 Major Due To Lack of Players

With only a few hours remaining before the highly anticipated Copenhagen CS2 Major kicks off, PGL has announced the removal of the 9Pandas roster from the event.

As per a recent Tweet by PGL, the Russian organization has fallen short in assembling a complete roster of five players, despite being granted multiple deadline extensions.

β€œAll PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 teams were required to be in Denmark by March 14,” the tournament organizer said in a statement. β€œDespite multiple extended deadlines, 9Pandas could only line up 3 eligible players today.”

As a result, PGL has confirmed that 9Pandas will be replaced by GamerLegion in the upcoming Copenhagen 2024 Major.

In the culmination of the European last-chance qualifier, GamerLegion found themselves losing to 9Pandas in the final game. This outcome solidifies the seedings for the opening rounds, with GamerLegion stepping into the fray to take on AMKAL Esports in their inaugural match, replacing 9Pandas without altering the tournament’s dynamic.

“Not being able to seize the opportunity for Major victory due to visa problems is truly disheartening, and we hope that 9Pandas won’t face similar issues in the future,” GamerLegion director of esports Julian “morxzas” Miculcy said in a statement. “Nevertheless, we are excited about the opportunity and will strive to make our fans proud in Copenhagen.”

Counter-Strike 2 fans will be able to catch their favorite teams from around the globe battling it out for a whopping $500,000 first-place prize starting March 17 at 13:00 CET on PGL’s official Twitch and YouTube channels.
