The latest CS:GO tournaments, including the $500,000 $100,000, $50,000 and $30,000 grand prix events, are still going strong, but a large portion of fans and esports fans don’t even have the time or money to attend them.
So how can you watch those events without paying hundreds or thousands of bucks?
That’s the question that came up during the first day of the Major League Gaming’s (MLG) $100 million CS: GO tournament, where eight of the top teams and players in the world competed.
The biggest prize pool in the tournament was $500 million.
While the prize money will likely go to the top eight teams and the top four players, there are still some teams and people who will struggle to make ends meet.
For those who have the money to spare, it’s important to know where to find events and where to purchase tickets.
In addition to the $100M Major League, which is now the largest in CS:go history, there is also a $50M CS:Go Championship, which will take place at DreamHack Winter 2018 in Malmö, Sweden.
To get a ticket to that event, you’ll need to pay $50 for a single-game ticket, $100 for a season pass, $150 for an all-inclusive package, $200 for a VIP package, and $300 for a package that includes all four CS:G modes.
The tickets can be purchased online at MajorLeagueGaming.com, or at participating events, which include DreamHack, the ESL, DreamHack Austin, ESEA, ESL Pro League, and ESEA Season 21.
The online sales process requires you to provide your email address, which you can do by going to your browser’s address bar and typing in “email me.”
Once you’ve signed up, the process will send you an email with your order details.
Once you confirm your order, the system will automatically send you your ticket to the event, which should be ready in about three business days.
You’ll then be able to purchase your ticket online through Ticketmaster, a website that has been around since 1999 and is used by nearly every major sporting event.
