CS: GO BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023: Teams, Format, schedule, and more

Blast.tv CS: GO Paris Major

The BLAST.tv Paris Major is set to be the final CS: GO Major championship, marking the end of a decade-long run for the popular esports game. Despite the upcoming release of Counter-Strike 2 in the summer of 2023, Valve has hinted at the possibility of a CS2 Major in 2024. This is the first time, probably since the first major, that there is no favorite to win the tournament, which makes it even more exciting.

The game’s fundamentals have remained unchanged since its inception, and it has stood the test of time as a balanced esports game. The BLAST Paris Major will be a groundbreaking event in many ways, as it marks the first time the Danish tournament organizer will host CS: GO’s most prestigious tournament.

Additionally, it will be the first CS: GO Major hosted in France, a country known for producing elite players, including three two-time Major winners. The Challengers Stage will kick off the Major, featuring 16 of the 24 teams in attendance. Eight teams will go through to the Legends stage, joining the top-seeded teams. Valve introduced the three-stage format in 2018, and the event will take place between May 8 and 21. The Champions Stage will be held at the Accor Arena, with tickets still available for purchase.
