All teams qualified for 2021 PGL Stockholm Major

Only 24 CS:GO squads will make it into the most prestigious tournament of the year.

The PGL CS:GO Major is set to take place in Stockholm, Sweden from Oct. 26 to Nov. 7, with the playoffs being held at the Avicii Arena. The $2 million tournament will be the first Valve-sponsored event since the StarLadder Berlin Major in September 2019.

The last Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournaments ahead of the Major are taking place under the umbrella of IEM Fall across six different regions: Europe, North America, CIS, Asia, Oceania, and South America. Each region has a determined number of slots, with Europe, CIS, and NA getting most of them.

The PGL Stockholm Major will kick off with the New Challengers Stage, which will see eight of the 16 teams advance to the New Legends Stage. Once again, half of the teams will be eliminated and the top eight will play in the playoffs at the Avicii Arena in Stockholm.

Here are all the teams qualified for the PGL Major Stockholm.

CIS

  • Natus Vincere (New Legends Stage)
  • Gambit (New Legends Stage)
  • Team Spirit (New Challengers Stage)
  • Entropiq (New Challengers Stage)
  • Virtus Pro (New Challengers Stage)

All five CIS slots for the PGL Stockholm Major were decided before the IEM Fall CIS playoffs kicked off. VP were the last team to secure a spot. Other notable teams such as forZe and K23 underperformed in the last RMR event of the year and didn’t make the cut.

Even though they won’t be at the Major, non-sponsored Russian team INDE IRAE were the biggest surprise of IEM Fall CIS. The team spearheaded by Vadim “DavCost” Vasilyev finished the group stage with four wins, including one against VP, but lost to Gambit and VP in the tiebreaker.

Oceania

  • Renegades (New Challengers Stage)

IEM Fall Oceania will also end on Oct. 3, but Renegades have already qualified for the PGL Major Stockholm regardless of the result of the grand finals since none of the other teams can catch up with them in the rankings.
