PGL Major Antwerp, the first Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major of 2022, is fast approaching. CS:GO’s most prestigious tournament will feature 24 teams from around the world. They will be split into three groups as always, Contenders, Challengers, and Legends. Teams will qualify for each of these groups based on their Regional Major Rankings (RMR) placement.

CS:GO Major qualification works by having each region play RMR events to earn placement at the Major. Teams with the highest placement per region will get Legend and Challenger spots, while the lower finishers will be Contenders. These RMR events start on April 11 with every qualified team being decided by April 24.
