CS:GO Major Championship (named by fans as "Majors") are tournaments with a prize pool of at least $250,000 sponsored by Valve and recent editions include special in-game features. The first event hosted by Valve was DreamHack Winter 2013 where Fnatic beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the finals.
Legends: The top eight teams from every tournament gain "Legend" status, and are automatically qualified into the next major.
Challengers: Every major has an offline qualifier about a month before the main event. The top eight teams from the Qualifier are given "Challenger" status.
Stickers and Pick'em
Stickers are included in newer Valve sponsored CS:GO Major Championship. There are both player and team stickers. A portion of the money made from those stickers goes straight to the players and teams.
Pick'em is a challenge in-game where people can buy the stickers of teams and players and pick who will win, or who will get the best statistic in a certain category, such as Pistol kills.
With all Valve sponsored majors, Valve offers exclusive cases. These cases drop to random people watching that game, and the case drop is decided by the map currently being played.† You can get a case by watching the game either on Twitch.TV or CS:GO's GOTV. However, during MLG Columbus you could also get drops by watching MLG.TV.
†Map based cases first appeared for ESL One Cologne 2014
