MLG CSGO major tickets sold out

Tickets to Major League Gaming’s Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournament in Ohio were sold out, and nothing less was expected for one of the biggest gaming events of the year.

MLG’s live event chief Adam Apicella made the announcement on Twitter. He later added that the organizers may try to expand the capacity in the Nationwide Arena, but additional tickets were unlikely.

MLG and Apicella have drawn praise from the community for the quality of their public-facing communication and transparency on plans for the major. MLG had even requested those who were attending the event to send RSVPs to their Facebook page as a show of support.

The tournament, a first North American Valve sponsored major saw more North American teams qualifying for the tournament than in any other major events.

Offering a glittering reward amounting to $1,000,000, spectators will be treated to a feast for the eyes as they witness 16 of the best CS: GO teams duke it out to earn a place as the best in the global CS: GO Arena.

Cloud9, Team Liquid, Splyce, Counter Logic Gaming, G2 Esports, Mousesports, Gambit Gaming and Flipsid3 Tactics booked their places at the major through qualifiers.

They will join the top eight from the last Counter-Strike majors, DreamHack Cluj—Team EnVyUs, Fnatic, FaZe, Na`Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Virtus.pro, Astralis and Luminosity Gaming. These teams had received direct invitations to Columbus.
