For the first time, Brazil will host the world championship of the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). The competition, named Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2022 (IEM Rio 2022 ), will be played between October 31 and November 13, with the face-to-face phase at Jeunesse Arena, in Rio de Janeiro.

This Tuesday’s announcement (24) was long awaited by fans of the game since the 2020 World Cup that would be held in Brazil β€” the ESL One Rio 2020 β€” was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This will also be the game’s first “Major” in South America.

During the in-person stage, starting on November 10, it is expected that over 20,000 fans will attend the event.

Ticket sales will start this Wednesday (25), at 2 pm, BrasΓ­lia time, and prices range from R$89 to R$149 for a day of the event and between R$319 and R$1,999 for four days. Tickets purchased for ESL One 2020 will still be valid.

In all, 24 teams will compete for the prize pool of US$400,000. The total prize pool for the tournament is $1 million.

Brazilian streamer Gaules will broadcast the tournament

Brazilian streamer Alexandre β€œGaules” Borba, known for leading the Brazilian fans in the game, will have exclusive rights to broadcast the championship in Portuguese.

This month, he broke the record for the highest number of simultaneous viewers on a live in Brazil β€” excluding music broadcasts and football matches on You Tube β€” with 710,500 people.

This happened exactly in a broadcast of the last CS:GO world championship, in the match between the Brazilian team Imperial against the American Cloud 9.
