Counter-Strike: GO – Major Championship at ESL One Cologne 2015

Valve today announced the next CS:GO Major Championship: ESL One Cologne 2015, featuring a $250,000 prize pool.

Taking place August 20th – 23rd at the LANXESS arena in Cologne, Germany, the upcoming CS:GO tournament will follow the progress of the Legends of ESL One Katowice 2015, who will be joined by eight Challengers decided by offline regional qualifiers. The event’s matches will be streamed live via continuous high-quality coverage provided by ESL.

This event will mark the sixth Major Championship for CS:GO. The previous CS:GO Major Championships have all generated record-breaking audiences, with the most recent event (ESL One Katowice 2015) reaching over one million concurrent viewers for the Grand Finals.

With support provided by Valve, the CS:GO Major Championship at ESL One Cologne 2015 will showcase several new and special features, including the largest main stage in CS:GO history, multiple streams broadcasting every group stage and playoff match, extensive behind-the-scenes footage featuring players and Counter-Strike personalities, and — for the first time — offline regional qualifying events in Burbank (USA), Cologne (Germany) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).

CS:GO fans will also have an opportunity to directly support their favorite teams by purchasing exclusive ESL One Cologne 2015 team stickers. At the previous CS:GO Major Championship at ESL One Katowice 2015, this crowd-funding approach generated more than $1.5 million for Legends and Challengers.
