PGL release update on the CS:GO Major – What is it?
PGL start the article off with the following words:
“The PGL CS:GO Major playoffs will take place in Stockholm if the local authorities can make the event accessible to players, staff, and fans.”Source
This makes it clear that despite the possibilities of the Major taking place in Stockholm, a certain amount of requirements need to be met.
They follow it up by emphasising that they are looking closely at both of the deadlines they’ve got. One of them being the 23rd of August, which refers to the lifting of the ban relating towards the players and people entering the Stockholm event. And the second deadline on the 15th of September, in-line with the indoor restrictions of events held in Sweden. If these two restrictions are lifted on the corresponding dates, the PGL Major can take place in Stockholm.
As mentioned in an earlier update, PGL already have a plan B if this one falls through. Referring to their plans of moving the Major to another European country. Nevertheless, if Sweden is not a possibility, PGL have advised that the event will play out in another destination, on the same dates in November.
With regards to tickets, PGL revealed that ticket sales will be available from the 16th of September regardless of where the Major is taking place.
