Stockholm Major Still On The Cards Despite Diplomatic Challenges

- Advertisment -

Following yesterday’s blog post by Valve on the uncertainty of the International 10 being held in Stockholm, concerns were beginning to spread to the CSGO community about the upcoming PGL Stockholm Major 2021 and whether it’ll see the same fate as the unexpected cancellation of TI10 last year.

For the unaware, Valve explained in a blog post yesterday about the difficulties they were facing in organizing TI10 in Stockholm this year. 

Due to the Swedish government’s stance to not accept esports into the sports federation, and the subsequent denial by Sweden’s Minister of the Interior to reclassify The International – DotA 2 Championships as an elite sporting event, Valve confirmed that they are looking for “possible alternatives elsewhere in Europe” to host the biggest annual Dota 2 event in August 2021.

“We feel confident that we will have a solution that allows us to hold TI10 in Europe this year, and that we will be able to announce an updated plan in the very near future,” Valve said.

Amid the looming uncertainty about the future of the October CSGO Major, a recent report by HLTV claims that Stockholm is still likely to be a priority for the upcoming major. 

The report states that the organizers of PGL Major Stockholm are committed to hosting the event in Stockholm. No plans have been made by PGL to shift venues of this year’s CSGO major as of yet.

The PGL Stockholm Major is currently scheduled to take place from October 23 through November 7. The tournament will see 24 of the best CSGO teams in the world battle it out for a share of the prize pool of a whopping $1 million.

The Stockholm major will be the first LAN event that the shooter has experienced in two years. Previously, the Rio de Janeiro major of 2020 was canceled due to the unfortunate coronavirus pandemic. The playoffs for the upcoming major are set to be organized in front of a live audience.
