The FACEIT Major: London 2018 is the 13th Valve-sponsored CS:GO Major, and the first to be held in good old London town, at the SSE Arena, Wembley. The event will take place between September 5-23.
Twenty four teams will contest the event. The tournament comprises three stages: The New Challengers Stage, The New Legends Stage and The New Champions stage. While the precise format hasn’t yet been announced, we do know that the first two stages will both eliminate eight teams, and the final stage will decide a winner from the remaining 8.
The prize pool is massive, standing at $1,0o0,000 USD. It’s also pretty top heavy, with half that sum – $500,000 – going to the winning team. The runners up will receive $150,000 between them, 3rd-4th get $70,000. Below that, the prizes diminish all the way down to 16th place.
