Best player of 2021 to be unveiled during first-ever HLTV Award Show
Join us on January 22 to witness the final three spots on the Top 20 Players of 2021 ranking be revealed live on stream.
For the first time ever, HLTV.org will host an Award Show at a studio location in Copenhagen, where the standout performers of the past year will be celebrated. As a part of the show, which is supported by GG.BET, the players ranked #3, #2, and #1 in 2021 will be announced.
The HLTV Award show will take place on a two-stage setup and be hosted by some of the best on-air talent in the game, Freya "Freya" Spiers and Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, with appearances from HLTV.org's duo Milan "Striker" Švejda and Zvonimir "Professeur" Burazin as well.
Select guests will take part in the show, some of them in person, but primarily calling in from home or bootcamp locations around the world. Alongside the reveal of the Top 3 of 2021, awards will be given out to the best team of 2021 and for the best highlight of 2021.
During the show, we will provide more insight into the process of determining the Top 20 players of the year ranking, sharing details such as which events are and which aren't taken into consideration. Additionally, we will reveal the three players which were the closest to making the Top 20 list for 2021 but unfortunately failed to make their way in.
Don't miss out on our recap of the year either, as we will start the show by going through 2021, discussing the biggest events and storylines of each quarter, and looking at how the three best players performed in different parts of the year.
The HLTV Award Show kicks off at 19:00 on January 22, and will be streamed live on Twitch. Make sure to follow our channel and turn on notifications to not miss out on the action. Find out more about the Top 20 players of the year in our introduction article.
