ELEAGUE, the professional esports organization formed in partnership between Turner and WME | IMG, will host the next Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Major Championship to be held January 22-29, 2017, in Atlanta. The Grand Final – televised live on TBS with a simulcast on Twitch – will take center stage on Sunday, Jan. 29, from historic Fox Theatre in midtown Atlanta.
The ELEAGUE Major – the 10th Major Championship in the history of CS:GO and one of only a few majors held each year – will feature the top eight teams (“Legends”) from the previous major competing against eight “Challengers” decided by a qualifier round. The Major Qualifier, held December 15-18 from ELEAGUE Arena in Atlanta and presented live on Twitch, will include the eight teams eliminated in the group stage from the prior major, as well as the top eight teams identified through Regional Minor Championships.
