MLG will be hosting the first ever North American CS:GO major, from Mar. 29 to Apr. 3.

The MLG Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major Championship: Columbus will be held in the MLG Arena and the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio and will feature a $250,000 USD prize pool.

The event will start with 16 teams competing in the MLG Arena for a spot in the semifinals, which will be held in the Nationwide Arena starting on Apr. 2. The tournament will also feature an All-Star Match on the Grand Finals day.

“For our first CS:GO event we brought the competition to the Aspen X Games,” MLG executive vice president Adam Apicella said in a press release. “We wanted to bring the game back to North American fans in a big way, and hosting a Major in front of thousands of spectators at Nationwide Arena is an exciting way to do that.”
