ESL confirms Rio de Janeiro Major

ESL has announced that it will host the first Counter-Strike Major of 2020, called ESL One Rio.

The event will have $1 million on offer and will culminate with the playoff stage live from the Jeunesse Arena, an indoor multi-purpose arena that hosted in 2017 the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational (MSI), and in 2018 the Rainbow Six Siege Season 8 Pro League finals.

Unlike the StarLadder Major, where all three stages had a live crowd, ESL One Rio will see the Challengers Stage and the Legends Stage played backstage. Tickets for the Champions Stage will go on sale from December 12, with the cheapest one-day ticket costing between R$70 ($17) and R$90 ($22), and the four-day pass costing between R$260 ($63) and R$1200 ($290).

This will be the first-ever Counter-Strike Major held in Brazil, which has already hosted two Big Events in Counter-Strike: the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals, in 2016, and ESL One Belo Horizonte, in 2018.

“We are extremely excited and proud to host the next Major in Brazil,” said Ulrich Schulze, Senior Vice President Product at ESL. "Our aim is to bring pure esports moments to the most passionate fans around the world and reward them by creating a unique experience on all levels.

"With teams from all over the world having a chance to qualify and making their way to the final, we expect the matches to be incredible and the crowd to be the loudest we have ever seen."

For the first time in the history of the Majors, all four Minors will be held simultaneously, from April 26 through May 3. The top two sides from these four regional tournaments plus the two teams coming out of the Minor Play-In - featuring the third-placed sides from the Minors - will advance to the Challengers Stage, joining the following six teams:

The eight-best teams of the Challengers Stage will secure entry into the Legends Stage, where they will join the top eight sides from the StarLadder Major, who can be found below:

Below you can find the complete schedule for ESL One Rio:

Minors - April 26 - May 3
Challengers Stage - May 11-14
Legends Stage - May 16-19
Champions Stage - May 21-24

Implying that anyone wants to know more about this shitty hole. You can bet that every pro in the scene is worried about their lifes and thinking about skipping a major because they are afraid of dying. Sad reality that ORGS force pros to go to war zones and risk their lifes because of the profession.

Probably the 2nd major of 2020? Or first major 2021. Idk.
2019-12-11 16:09
Rather not have a major at Sydney, since the seriousness of the major will al but guarenteed tone down the croud, making it less of an memorable event. Plus, 2 majors + Sydney is better then 2 majors with Sydney being 1 of them.
2019-12-11 16:11
Well, i want all majors in EU lol. But, they talked about Brazil & Australia, so i am expecting other major or first major of 2021 to be in Australia. Obv it doesnt have to be Major in Sydney, could be a major in Melbourne etc.

Don't think that the crowd will ever tone down but I have to agree with you on the second point. Don't think valve will ever let Sydney have a major, seeing as they don't like the timezone. They have to make money after all.

2019-12-11 17:03
*for the viewers, not casters or players LUL
2019-12-11 17:04
No, Brazil is the best time for worldwide. They are 1 hour ahead of Eastern time, meaning slightly better than Eastern time majors for EU viewers, plus they're still good times for NA viewers. And don't forget, all 3 majors held in NA were top 4 in terms of total viewership. In fact, both Eleague majors broke the viewership records in many categories, so a 1 hour time difference that is even closer to EU can only make it a better time.

(Sorry, my english isn't very good) A lot of people saying that Rio is a very dangerous place, but it's not totally true. Yes, in certains hours or places Rio will be very dangerous, but where the Jenuesse Arena is located not. A lot of people is also saying that Jenuesse Arena isn't a good place for a Major, but I think is very good, she's in the Olympic Park ( I dont know do you say this in English ), and if you want to know about her size, search about "CBLOL 2019 Rio"

not at all bruv i know what i’m talking about, and i’m sure there will be almost no foreigners players watching the major irl rio IS a dangerous place if you compare it to the rest of states in Brazil, but if you compare it to EU countries or NA, it’s not only dangerous, it is a warzone

It's in Rio, not in Maranhão, the most dangerous place in Brazil is, Rio e known by its drug traffic not by deads edit: It's Rio Grande do Norte, not Maranhão
2019-12-11 18:46
Oh, drugs... Well, if ENCE qualifies, at least sunny is going to overdose so there's that...

Rio has a lot of big events every year, just be careful and u can have a safe visit here in Brazil, come on guys, I'm almost 18, and I never saw a gun of a thug in my life, and I'm from Bahia, a state more dangerous than Rio

no maracanazinho and shitty BR teams I mean it's great that they're finally doing it but this could've been twice as big under the right circumstances
2019-12-11 18:45
I’m brazilian and there’s no freaking way I’m going to that warzone called Rio de Janeiro

This is the single worst idea Valve has ever had. Allowing a major in a country where multiple players have had death threats made against them if they ever were to return? The teams should boycott this.
2019-12-11 20:13
Yes! A place I can just drive down to
2019-12-11 20:28
THE MAJOR SHOULD BE IN SÃO PAULO, THIS WILL BE THE WORST MAJOR IN HISTORY!!!!
2019-12-11 20:53
Yeah there will be many muggings. Just look at what happened with the olympics.

The only bad thing is that HELL de Janeiro is the worst city in the world.
2019-12-11 21:32
A Brazilian calling the city that the major is going to happen "Hell" This one will be great. I can't wait to see when all things bad start to happen in a roll and ORGs will start to make excuses to not talk shit about the country because it's bad press. Olympics all over again.

People here thinks Brazil is a war zone. Brazil is indeed a violent country, but most of it related to drug traffic. You won't get stabbed, you won't die and the chances of you getting robbed is very low if you play smart. I mean, I live in Brazil since I was born and never got robbed. Be careful at night when stopping at traffics lights, don't walk alone on the streets during night, don't walk with expensive stuff exposed.
2019-12-11 23:24
No it is not low. Provide a source.
2019-12-12 10:55

very bad brasil why major :( euro major play pls
2019-12-11 23:29
Hiko had to have body guards while in Brazil. Players were told not to answer the hotel doors if anyone knocked. Players were spit at/on while walking to and from the stage. Qualifies for Major. LOL what a joke.

rio so dangerous i hope no pro player get hurt there
2019-12-12 01:48
We have Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte, but they chose Rio de Janeiro. will be sad to see once again Brazil being known as a crappy place due the choice of city, after all Rio De Janeiro is one of the cities with bigger criminal records in the world.
2019-12-12 03:06
I just hope someone don't get killed, that I'll fucking put a stain in this country forever.
2019-12-12 22:03
Imagine MIBR not making it to top 16 xD.

Brazillians attempt to kill all csgo players except Brazilians 😂 only way to win major for them

2019-12-12 07:52
Tip: Buy camisa do mengão/flamengos tshirt for not getting shot/stabbed/robbed.
2019-12-12 08:05
Brazil + Russia both deserves a major. Only European soyboys would dislike this. Why wouldn't a country with one of the largest cs populations not have the right to host a major?
2019-12-12 08:30
Cuz brazil is literally the most dangerous country lol, notorious for acting like animals in events like this.
