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 but it's name CS:GO Championship (later changed to CS:GO Major Championship, when Fnatic beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the finals.


Teams[edit]

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[edit]

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.
