Here are all the CS:GO Majors and Winners

From Jönköping tp Paris, there have been a total of twenty CS:GO Majors.

Counter-Strike Global Offensive was released in August 2012. More than a decade later, the game is set to make way for CS2 - or Counter-Strike 2 - as the official name goes. During the past decade, there have been various storylines, eras and metas in CS:GO. But for every team that competed professionally, there was quite often, just one goal - to win a CS:GO Major. Here are all the CS:GO Majors and their winners over the years.

Despite the fact that the average CS:GO Major has not featured the biggest prize pool in CS:GO, it remains the most prestigious. Teams want to win the Major to stamp their authority and etch their names in the history books. And this article is one such history book.

The BLAST Paris Major was the final CS:GO Major. It took place over fourteen days in May 2023 crowning one team, Team Vitality as the winner. The next Counter-Strike Major will be the PGL CS2 Major in Copenhagen in 2024.
