ELEAGUE Major: Boston Brings Together CS:GO's Best in January

Sixteen teams will look to claim Counter-Strike: Global Offensive supremacy to kick off 2018.


Turner's venture into Counter-Striker: Global Offensive continues, as ELEAGUE has announced its plans for the next CS:GO Major. ELEAGUE Major: Boston will come to Boston University's Agganis arena, pitting CS:GO's best teams against each other on the weekend of January 26-28.

A $1 million prize pool is on the line and will feature the eight teams from the first ELEAGUE Major held in January 2017. Those teams are:

  • Astralis
  • Gambit Esports
  • Immortals
  • Virtus.pro
  • SK Gaming
  • BIG
  • Team North

Those eight teams will be joined by eight other teams from upcoming Minor Championships, with two teams coming up from the Americas, Asia, Europe, and CIS regions. The first of these Minors will begin on October 26 in Seoul and Bucharest.

Just as with the first ELEAGUE Major, look for the action to unfold across Twitch and YouTube, with select programming also airing live on TBS.

Let's also take a look at what made the first ELEAGUE Major so memorable by looking at the recap below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
