The world of CS:GO professional eSports has seen some crazy twists and turns recently. Most recently, we saw the excellent Gambit beat who were previously considered to be the best CS:GO team in the world, Natus Vincere, to the title of IEM XV Katowice.


So, what next? Well, we’ve got the next IEM events right around the corner and that’s only just the beginning. There are some seriously exciting looking CS:GO tournaments planned for this year and we’re about to take a look at the best ones to look forward to!


If you like the sound of any of the following events (and we’re sure you will), then why not put a bet down on one or two of them? Betting on eSports can help to add even more excitement to the spectacle. You just have to find the right place to put your money down in the first place. As a hobby, it’s becoming more and more popular all the time and there’s no surprise there. It really is a lot of fun! If you like the sound of it, there’s a guide to esports betting that will show you all the awesome things you can get out of it. These include epic signup bonuses for new sportsbooks, all created by experts in the industry! On top of that, it’s not just CS:GO betting you can enjoy. There’s League of Legends, Dota 2, and more.


Don’t go anywhere though, you don’t want to miss what’s coming up. With the following information, you’ll be ready to go for what looks to be a very exciting season for CS:GO eSports news.


IEM XVII Dallas and Cologne

After all the drama in Katowice, you’re not going to want to miss the next Intel Extreme Masters event. Next time around, it’s taking place in the beautiful city of Dallas, USA followed by a third, bigger event in Cologne, Germany.


Cologne is the one to look out for. The prize pool is higher, there are more teams and things are just going to be generally a bit more exciting. The event will kick off on July 5th and run through to the final on July 17th.


The stakes are high. So, is Gambit going to retain the crown? Or are Natus Vincere going to come back stronger than ever? Could someone else be in the running? All will be revealed shortly in just a few months…


ESL Pro League Season 16

Another one of the big players in CS:GO eSports tournaments is the ESL Pro League Season. 24 teams will play each other in a league table format with big prizes up for grabs for those in the top 4.


The winner of this tournament not only wins a very appealing $175,000 but they’ll also be automatically qualified for the BLAST Premier World Final, potentially landing them even more prestige on the CS:GO world stage.


Literally all the best teams in the world participate in this league so it’s a real chance to find out who is actually the best CS:GO team in the world at the time. Make sure you tune in from the 31st August.


BLAST Premier

A little more on BLAST Premier then. We’ve just seen the conclusion of the Spring Group stages and heading into June, we’ll be bearing witness to the Spring Finals.


During the group stages, the teams that came out on top were Team Vitality, OG, and FaZe Clan, three super-powerful teams right now. There’s every chance that one of these teams will go all the way to winning the Spring Finals!


But it’s not just the three of them that are in with a shot. G2 Esports, Natus Vincere, and BIG will certainly fancy their chances as well. It’s so hard to call it!


Last thoughts on CS:GO

Wow, the rest of 2022 is looking seriously high octane if you’re a CS:GO fan! Not only do we have some of the most exciting events on the horizon for the coming months, but the best teams are in sparkling form right now so the quality is potentially higher than ever.


We should give an honorable mention to the DreamHack events and ESEA as well, some more exciting events on the CS:GO calendar that you really should not miss if you’re a big fan of watching professional eSports Counter-Strike. Maybe we’ll come back to those ones another time…
