PGL Copenhagen Major 2024: Schedule, results, and more

Let the Major begin.

Counter-Strike 2’s first Major has finally arrived. A total of 24 teams have converged in the Danish capital for the hotly anticipated PGL Copenhagen Major and a shot at the lion’s share of a $1.25-million prize pool and the title of Major Champions.

Eight of the world’s best have a week off after a grueling RMR circuit, with the last 16 squads first fighting out the Opening Stage of the Major. Only eight can proceed to the elimination stage and a shot at Major Glory.

Of the 16 teams that make the Elimination Stage, eight proceed to the playoffs, where we’ll work our way through the single elimination bracket to find our first CS2 Major champion.

Here’s everything you need to know about the PGL Copenhagen Major 2024: Match schedule, results, standings, and more.

The Opening Stage of the PGL Copenhagen CS2 Major was one of three separate stages. Previously these stages were known as the Challenger, Legend, and Champion stages, but they’ve since been renamed. The Opening Stage is essentially the Challenger Stage of old and acts at culling the field from 24 teams to 16.

The 16 contestants were seeded into a Swiss stage, where teams played an opponent who shared the same record (e.g. if a team’s record was 0-1, they played another team with a 0-1 record). The Swiss stage is simple: Win three games and you’re through to the Elimination Stage, lose three and you’re out.

All 0-0, 0-1, 1-0, and 1-1 matches were best-of-one, meaning a single slip-up from a top seed cost them—and their Pick’Em fans—a chance at qualifying early. Any progression or elimination matches were best-of-three.

By the end of the stage, the eight qualifiers were reseeded into the Elimination Stage with the eight invites, where they played out another identical Swiss stage. The top eight qualified for the Playoffs, where they battled through a reseeded single-elimination bracket until only one team remained.
