Valve Reportedly Confirms Dates for 2020 and 2021 CS:GO Majors

Valve confirmed the dates for the next four Counter-Strike; Global Offensive Majors on Monday to be held in 2020 and 2021, according to a report by HLTV. The information comes via emails to tournament organizers asking for tournament proposals for those dates.

The CS:GO Major 2020 dates are May 11-24 and Nov. 2-15, while the 2021 dates are May 10-23 and Nov. 1-14.

Valve plans to choose Major partners at least a year in advance of the events. As a result, both 2020 partners will be chosen by the end of June. Proposals for 2021 are also being accepted, though decisions will come later.

Majors will take place across two weeks as opposed to their usual three, forcing organizers to double-stream more matches during the Swiss stages.

While locations have yet to be nailed down, Valve did remind organizers to aim for timezones convenient for the majority of CS:GO viewers. The company highlighted a 9 p.m. Central European Time slot as primetime.

The next Major, StarLadder Berlin, is set to take place from Aug. 20 to Sept. 8.
