Each of the four Majors this season offers a whopping $250,000 of prize and are some of the best Halo tournaments all season long.

The top teams from each region compete to earn prize and further Halo Championship Points to help qualify for the Halo World Championship later in the season.

Last season, the following seeding breakdown was utilized:

  • North America: 10 teams
  • Europe: 4 teams
  • Australia and New Zealand: 1 team
  • Mexico: 1 team

Notably for 2024, the community is heading to the United Kingdom in Major 2 – a first time in a while that Halo is going global.

In addition, each Major offers:

  • $5,000 FFA competition
  • $5,000 in other tournaments

Halo World Championship 2024 – The Best Halo Tournament

Above all, without any doubt, the king of all the Halo Tournaments is the Halo World Championship. Including only the very best teams in the world, the event this year will take place in October, hosted in Seattle, Washington once again.

Throwing an insane $1,000,000 of prize pool on the line, this alone makes this event perfect for Halo betting. While for now, details are scarce, the event will likely be similar to this last season, featuring two stages of competition and an exciting Open Bracket.

It’s at events such as the Halo World Championship, that the best Halo players cement their careers.

Also worth noting, the HaloWC FFA Finals with a prize of $25,000 returns for 2024.

Halo Esports 2024 – Focused Changes

Overall, 2024 is massive for the Halo Tournaments soon to come. Moreover, 343 Industries have made multiple changes to the circuit, such as featuring more offline events, removing Supers and removing Global Invitatationals.

All of these changes look to improve the esport, which also means improving esports betting. With Halo esports tournaments on the rise, so are the opportunities to take betting to the next level!
