CS:GO Events & Tournaments Calendar 2023

With so many CS:GO events occurring all year round, it might be challenging to remain on track. We have attempted to include the best events that have been officially confirmed for 2023 on this list. The Counter-Strike Global Offensive calendar for 2023 is not yet finalized, but many upcoming events spread out over the months where the best teams from around the world will compete. There will be a wide variety of teams to follow throughout the year, including Major champions like Outsiders and FaZe Clan, rising stars on MOUZ and G2 Esports, and teams trying to rekindle the magic of the previous major like Ninjas in Pyjamas and Astralis.

The three leading companies that organize competitive CS:GO competitions are ESL, Intel Extreme Masters, and BLAST. The professional leagues, prestigious tournaments, and significant global finals are all designed and managed in part by them individually.

Here is the schedule for the forthcoming event in 2023. Here is the guide to the cs:go events tournaments calendar 2023.
