With the four qualifiers over, PGL is getting ready to welcome 40 talented CS:GO players from all over Europe to the PGL Regional Minor Championship, taking place between January 29 and 31.

 

The LAN event will be hosted in PGL's brand new studios in Bucharest, Romania, and will feature a double-elimination group-stage followed by a single-elimination bracket.

Now, they will have to face their toughest competition yet, but the rewards will be worth the effort: a $50,000 prize pool and a guaranteed spot in the offline qualifier for the MLG Columbus CS:GO Major.
