Valve has announced through their CS:GO blog that every CS:GO Major Championship will have a $1,000,000 USD prize pool starting with MLG Columbus 2016.
“The professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in the world, drawing global audiences of millions of viewers, filling massive venues, and garnering higher prize pools. Professional CS:GO has grown, and the CS:GO Major Championships are about to grow with it.”
There’s been lots of movement within the CS:GO scene with lots of Call of Duty organisations picking up a team for this title.
