Watch live coverage from Boston’s Agganis Arena beginning Friday at 10:00am ET (4:00pm CET) on the official Twitch stream (or in game on GOTV) to see which team will become the next CS:GO Major Champions!
Don’t forget to make your Playoff picks now in the Pick’Em Challenge before the matches begin tomorrow.
After an exciting Preliminary Stage, six returning challengers and three new challengers are moving on to the next phase. This weekend, watch as sixteen teams fight for Legend status and the chance to compete in the playoffs.
You have until the start of the first match on Friday to make your picks for the Group Stage of the Pick’Em Challenge. Not sure how to rank the remaining teams?
Historically, successful teams prevail for multiple Majors in a row. For the last seven Majors, at least six Returning Legends successfully defended their Legend status.
Will the trend continue? Will the Returning Legends maintain their momentum? At the Major, there are no guarantees.
Join us this Friday for the Preliminary Stage of the ELEAGUE Boston 2018 Major Championship! Watch live as eight Challengers advance to the Major Championship Group Stage.
Starting this weekend and throughout the Major, viewers will have a chance to receive Souvenir Packages as they watch live matches.
