The CS:GO circuit is packed with high-quality tournaments, but the majors still stand out. The 17th edition of the prestigious Valve-sponsored event will be hosted by PGL, the same company that organized the 2021 Stockholm Major.

This time the Major is taking us to Antwerp. The event features 24 of the world’s top teams who must qualify through Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournaments. No team is guaranteed a place in Antwerp, not even NAVI, Best Team of 2021 and reigning Major champions.

NAVI won the Stockholm Major convincingly – can they do it again in Antwerp?

Teams qualified for PGL Major Antwerp 2022

Valve merged some of the regions and created three RMR events that will determine the 24 teams participating in the Major: Europe, Americas, and Asia Pacific. The number of slots allocated to each region was determined by its performance at the previous Major.

The RMR tournaments will be hosted by PGL from April 11th to 24th at the company’s Bucharest studio. Qualifiers for these events begin in late February, with registration links available here.

Due to its size, the Europe RMR was divided into two tournaments with 32 teams.

Below you can see how many teams each region is sending to the Major. This will be updated when all regional qualifiers are completed in May.
