The PGL Antwerp 2022 Major


The first Major Championship of 2022 will be hosted by PGL in Antwerp, Belgium, and will be held in the massive Antwerps Sportpaleis arena!

Major Rulebook

All tournaments rely on a rulebook. For the Majors, the rulebook is written by the tournament organizer, with additional ‘supplementary’ rules provided directly by Valve. Those supplemental rules have evolved over time, and have not always been easy for fans or tournament organizers to find.

To reduce confusion over those supplemental rules, we have compiled our requirements into a public document that can be viewed here:

Dreams & Nightmares Contest Winners

By the time the deadline for submissions hit in October, we had received over 15,000 entries.

The CS:GO team reviewed the amazing work from artists and teams from all parts of the globe, and decided that ten winners wouldn’t be enough. So, an additional seven winning submissions were selected (17 winning entries total) for a grand total prize pool of $1.7 million.
