PGL Copenhagen Major Secures Third Place in CS History for Peak Viewership

The PGL Copenhagen Major 2024 which was also the first CS2 Major comes to an end after NAVI beat FaZe Clan in the Grand Final. According to Esports Charts, the grand final achieved a staggering peak viewership of 1,844,748 and became one of the most iconic moments in Counter-Strike history.

The grand final of PGL Major Copenhagen brought together two esports giants, Natus Vincere, and FaZe Clan. This clash of titans not only showcased the exceptional skill and strategy of both teams but also attracted a massive audience eager to witness esports history in the making.

What set the Copenhagen Major final apart was its intensity and unpredictability. The match extended to three maps, a rare occurrence that hadn’t been witnessed since ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018. The competitive spirit was palpable as Natus Vincere and FaZe fought tooth and nail, leaving spectators on the edge of their seats until the very end.

One of the contributing factors to the record-breaking viewership was the presence of prominent streamers who co-streamed the match.

While the Copenhagen Major may rank sixth in terms of hours watched due to MR12, its peak viewership firmly establishes it as a game-changer. The Danish Major’s monumental success has redefined the standards for Counter-Strike tournaments, setting a new benchmark for future events to aspire to.

Although the Copenhagen Major’s peak viewership falls slightly below that of its predecessors, such as the Stockholm and Antwerp Majors, it nonetheless etches its name in the annals of esports history. With over 1.8 million concurrent viewers, the Copenhagen Major stands as a testament to the growing popularity and influence of esports on a global scale.
