It has been revealed that the ESL One Rio 2020 CS:GO Major has been scrapped due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The event was due to take place in November with a grand prize pool of $2 million. It was initially supposed to be held May 11 -24 but was postponed due to the same circumstances that led it to become canceled.
The tournament organiser commented: "Together with Valve we had to make the tough but safe decision to cancel the ESL One Rio Major 2020 due to the ongoing disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We worked through several alternative options down to the last hour to make the Major a reality, but ultimately have to face the fact that the global situation currently does not allow for a Major to take place."
A disappointing bit of news but it's unsurprising given the current circumstances.
Thanks, Dot Esports.
