After only a month into 2022, PGL revealed the CS:GO Antwerp 2022 Major, which starts on May 9 in Belgium. The best teams worldwide will face each other for a share of its massive $1 million prize pool.
Kicking off from May 9 to 22, the Major includes nearly two weeks of esports action. The tournament takes place “in the heart of Europe” inside Antwerps Sportpaleis, Belgium. The arena is easily accessible by being 30 minutes away from the Brussels airport. So, anyone can find themselves having a comfortable time accessing the event.

It all starts with the PGL conducting the qualifying stages for participating teams across the globe. The qualified teams will then go on to compete against each other. This time around, fans will be able to attend the event and cheer their favorite teams. However, this will only be the case for the main stages.
As always, PGL will “keep a close eye on the global pandemic situation” and is ready to adapt its plans to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the tournament. The Major will be the second tournament to be broadcasted in 4K resolution worldwide since the Stockholm Major in 2021.
Bringing the Fans Back Together
In an announcement, Silviu Stroie, PGL’s CEO expressed his excitement for the tournament and added on about how great the opportunity was to bring fans together for another event.
“We are glad to have the opportunity to bring back the fans and players together for another CS:GO Major. Belgium has an impressive Counter-Strike fanbase, and many legendary players were born in this country. We are ready to offer an incredible experience for the fans inside the arena and the passionate viewers at home.”
All tournament format details include the qualifying stages and schedules. Broadcasting notices and ticketing will be announced later on PGL’s social media platforms.
