First Ever Counter-Strike 2 Tournament: Legends vs Champions

SteelSeries is making history once again: we're organizing the first Counter-Strike 2 tournament! And it's not just any tournament, either.

We were there in 2013, when we sponsored the first CS:GO major, sponsoring the first winner, Fnatic. And we are here now, in 2023, with the first ever official Counter-Strike 2 tournament. It's a monumental event for the FPS that everyone is waiting for, and this is going to be a stream you can't miss.

There's really no better way to usher in a new era of Counter-Strike than by having the youngins vs. the veterans. And so, the champions of FaZe Clan will face off against storied legends of CS:GO to see whether the old guard holds up in a new game. Or does the newer blood adapt faster?

FaZe Clan will face Neo and Pasha from the Polish Golden Five, and also GuardiaN, but the rest is shrouded in mystery...

Check out the details of the SteelSeries Champions vs. Legends tournament and mark your calendar right now.
