With this, all the 24 CS:GO teams set to participate in the upcoming PGL Major Stockholm 2021 have now been finalized.

The 24 teams have been divided into three categories - Contenders, Challengers, and Legends, with eight teams under each one of them. They have been selected as per their standing on the RMR leaderboard for their respective region, after adding the points earned via IEM Fall 2021.

Here are all the teams that will be seen in action at the first CS:GO Major in more than two years, to be played in front of a packed crowd at the Avicii Arena, Stockholm.

The PGL Major Stockholm 2021 had its own drama to deal with before the event was finally confirmed to take place in Sweden. Everyone from select Swedish ministers, influential Swedish esports athletes, and the CS:GO community itself was completely invested in ensuring the Major should take place, at Stockholm.

It did take some time and a lot of discussions, but finally the Swedish authorities accepted the proposition of hosting the tournament, making all the necessary arrangements for it to take place seamlessly.

With the Major back on track, taking place as originally intended, the organizers began the sale of tickets, announced the talent lineup for the event which came with its own set of community-wide debates, and even rolled out the complete schedule for the event.
