The CS:GO Asia Championships 2023 returns to this season’s tournament schedule in Shanghai, China, with a juicy prize pool of $500,000.

There is no doubt that this is great news not only for the teams and players but the entire community is very excited about the return of this wonderful tournament. While it is true that the prize pool is really good, the fact that 8 of the best teams in the world are fighting for it makes this tournament the focus of many in the community.

CS:GO Asia Championships 2023 | Details

Last August 26, Perfect World, one of the most important tournament organizers in the Asian continent, announced the CS:GO Asia Championships 2023.

As we note, from November 8-12, 2023, eight teams at the top competitive level will battle it out to take home the largest portion of the $500,000 prize pool.

On the other hand, the tournament organizers announced the teams directly invited to the $500,000 event. However, it doesn’t end there, as the tournament will also feature the finalists of the upcoming Perfect World Arena Premier League S5, which has the best talents from the Asian continent.

Now, the participating teams (invited) to the CS:GO Asia Championships 2023 are as follows:

  • ENCE
  • G2
  • FaZe Clan
  • Team Liquid
  • MOUZ

While it is true that this tournament is intended to be held on CS:GO, as its name suggests, the organizers mentioned that, should CS2 be released before the tournament date, this would be the platform they would use to play. As a result, Perfect World intends to progress just like the other major tournament organizers in the new era of Counter-Strike.

About the CS:GO Asia Championships Shanghai

The beginnings of the CS:GO Asia Championships Shanghai, with Perfect World as tournament organizers, date back to the 2018 and 2019 seasons, when Shanghai hosted intense battles between the world’s best teams.

However, as we approach the month of November, expectations are growing higher and higher as the organizers want to continue the great legacy of their predecessors. Remember that this tournament marks the return of competitive Counter-Strike to a stage in China since the COVID-19 pandemic caused all esports events in this Asian region to be completely suspended.

On the other hand, let’s remember that Perfect World partnered with PGL to organize the second Major in the CS2 era in Shanghai, China. This means that both PGL and Perfect World intend for Shanghai to become one of the major Tier 1 Counter-Strike tournaments like Cologne, Rio, Dallas, and Katowice.
