What’s better than being in the arena for a CSGO Major?

Being in the arena for the better part of a fortnight. In Brazil. When Imperial win it.

Alright, that all sounds like a pipedream. Nobody could logistically set up an eleven day event in Rio, all in front of fans, and there’s no way Imperial are ever going to win it.


ESL are going to do their damnedest. They’ve announced the stadium is open to spectators for every single day of the Major, which is just mind-blowing. You can just pop down for a few group stage games at the arena and chill out.

Well, you might have to book. Very, very quickly.

Tickets for the playoffs sold out in under two hours, in case you were wondering if Brazilian fans were passionate enough.

We doubt you were.

This is massive, though. A full event in front of fans sounds like a hell of a lot of fun, and something we’d love to see somewhere closer to home. Hint hint, BLAST.

There’s going to be one hell of a party down in Brazil.

Now, Imperial, everyone else has held up their side of the bargain…
