The Stockholm Major is all set for the competition.
The last RMR (Regional Major Rankings) tournament of the year, IEM Fall 2021, concluded yesterday with TYLOO, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and FURIA Esports winning their respective regional qualifiers. 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.
CS:GO team list set for PGL Major Stockholm 2021
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.
Now all that was required were the names of 24 competing teams, which have now been finalized following the culmination of IEM Fall 2021, for all the regions. Here are the participants competing for the $2,000,000 USD prize pool.

The tournament which is set to run from 26th October to 7th November will be the first CS:GO tournament being played in front of a live audience after a very long time span.
Hopefully, the Major will be played out without any major issues, as CS:GO finally crowns a new champion after more than two years.
