PGL Stockholm Major Boasts RECORD-BREAKING Prize Pool

Published: Oct 27, 2021 - Last Updated: Jul 26, 2023

While CSGO is undoubtedly one of the most popular esports titles in history, it isn’t the most valuable. If we track back through the last decade or so of competitive gaming, in terms of overall value, CSGO tournaments aren’t making it into the top ten. Regardless, CSGO remains one of the most-watched esports titles to-date, with competitions in the space drawing in millions of viewers.

With that information in mind, it’s unfair to say that CSGO tournaments are worth nothing. On the contrary; the best CSGO competitions boast considerable prize pools, they’re just not as high as some other tournaments. For example, Dota 2’s The International rules the roost, boasting a staggering prize pool worth some $40 million (in 2021).

Now, the platform has stepped things up a bit, introducing a record-breaking prize pool for the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 event.

For this competition, which is the first CSGO Major in two years, the prize pool is worth some $2 million. It’s the largest prize pool in CSGO history, with the second-place slot being claimed by the WESG 2017 event, which boasted a $1.5 million pool. Furthermore, the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 event is set to be the biggest CSGO tournament for a very long time.

There are twenty-four teams competing at the event, all of which make up the finest gaming talent the CSGO world has to offer. There are unparalleled opportunities for fans to get involved with CSGO bets, and it’s also a return to LAN form for the title. For the PGL Major Stockholm event, fans are openly invited to support their teams at the massive Avicii Arena in Sweden.

Recently, it was also announced that GG.bet would be the official betting partner for the tournament. There’s no doubt that the profile of this competition is swelling, and before it ends on the 7th of November, it’ll have established itself as one of the greatest of all time.
