In a new first in the industry, Faceit will be hosting all the CSGO Minors at London itself. The venue choice is made keeping in mind, potential VISA issues as well as providing a fair platform for all the attending teams. Teams will have time to apply for their visas as well as to ensure a proper and fair gameplay.
By hosting each stage of the tournament at Twickenham Stadium we’re hoping to bring new life to the Minors.
The Major should be a celebration of all things CS:GO, we want to bring teams together for the first time and make sure teams of all levels feel welcome and feel the Major experience.
FACEIT Chief Business Officer Michele Attisani.
Each minor also has a prize pool of $50,000 up for grabs. So the teams do have an incentive to place well in these minors. The schedule for the Minors is as follows:
- Americas Minor – July 7-11
- CIS Minor – July 10-13
- Asia Minor – July 16-20
- Europe Minor – July 19-22
- C++ Institute CPP Self Study Online Sale
