The Danish Government previously banned gatherings of over ten people until March 31 but has since extended the ban to April 13. As a result, this means Copenhagen Games 2020 will no longer be able to take place.
The event had initially been scheduled to hold in two weeks, from April 10-11. It has now been canceled due to the current state of affairs regarding COVID-19. Copenhagen Games CEO Zahid Butt released a statement on their website in which he apologized for the inconvenience the cancelation will cause and thanked the community for all its support leading up to the present.
This is the first time Copenhagen Games has been canceled since our start in 2010 and partners, players, crew, and everyone that has been preparing for the event is hurt by the necessity of this — not only financially, but emotionally
Copenhagen Games joins the vast list of organizers that are putting their responsibility to attendees, players, and staff first during this trying time. By canceling their CS:GO event, they not only comply with the Government's decision but also play their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
This turn of events means that forZe will remain the reigning champions for one more year.
