The next tournament by Valve is confirmed

ESL announced that it will host the next — Major ESL One Rio. The tournament will take place at the Jeunesse Arena, which hosted the 2017 League of Legends (MSI) and the ESL Pro League S8 Finals Rainbow Six. The prize fund of ESL One Rio will be $1,000,000.

Unlike StarLadder Berlin Major, where all three stages of the championship were attended by a live audience, ESL One Rio's "New challengers" and "Legends" will be held behind closed doors. The Minor stage will run from April 26 to May 3, and the main part of the competition is scheduled for May 11-24. Valve's tournament in Rio will be the first Major for Brazil, while ESL's ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals and ESL One Belo Horizonte have already taken place twice in the country.

Recall that the last major in CS:GO was held in Berlin and was organized by StarLadder. The Born to Win managed to make it to the playoffs, where they lost in the quarterfinals to us NRG (0 : 2). The victory went to the Danish team dk Astralis, which for the fourth time became the champion in these competitions. We believe that ua NAVI will take the team game to the highest level and win the first major! #navination
