These three Counter Strike Global Offensive tournaments (cs_summit, Legends and Lan ETS) happened in February, but there are many more coming up throughout 2018 to pay attention to. Here is a list of the most important CSGO tournaments coming up in 2018, followed by a list of the most important online tournaments, both lists beginning in March. Furthermore, you’ll get a list of the best CSGO team and teams that will be participating.

Remember, there are many more CS:GO tournaments 2018 that don’t necessarily fall into these categories. Those are the minor competitions; this list only includes premier and major ones. If you’re looking for a CS:GO tournament closer to home where you might be able to watch some CSGO live matches, consider looking elsewhere than a CSGO major, as these big events often take place in more prominent cities. You’re probably more likely to find a CS GO tournament 2018 closer to home if you look for minors.

So, there you have it, a handy list of CS:GO events 2018. Much of this information will be updated once the events draw a little closer, as qualifiers haven’t happened yet for most of them. Some have invited teams to their next CS GO tournament while others are solely qualifier-based. Either way, it will take some time before you can know if your favorite CS:GO team will appear at a given tournament.

This article will be updated as more tournament information is revealed for 2018. Be sure to check back for updates on who will attend and compete, and what the prize money will be.
