After a two-year-break, PGL Major returned for the 2021 edition, held in Stockholm’s Avicii Arena. The biggest Counter-Strike contest in the world, it will see the world’s 24 best teams compete for prizes worth $2,000,000. The event will be broadcast worldwide in tens of languages, for the first time in its history.
PGL Major Stockholm 2021 will begin with the New Pretenders Phase where 16 teams will fight for 8 spots in the New Legends Phase. These stages will be based on the Swiss system: contestants with 3 wins move on to the next phase, while those with 3 losses are dropped from the tournament. Deciding will be the best-of-three matches, followed by one-match contests.
