A big announcement just after the end of the Copenhagen Major!

Just after NAVI got the PGL Copenhagen Major trophy over FaZe Clan, we get the announcement of the first BetBoom Dacha CS2 LAN. The tournament is set to happen in Belgrade (Serbia), with a prize pool of $500,000 USD.

The BetBoom Dacha Belgrade will happen on May 14-19. However, there's going to be an online stage before to determine which two teams are joining the final eight. Here you will find all the details on regional qualifiers, dates, scheduled games, and more.

Announced teams and venue

The BetBoom Dacha CS2 LAN will feature eight of the best teams in the world. Six of them will be directly invited, the remaining two will come from South America and Europe closed qualifiers. These are the five confirmed invited teams, with one yet to be announced:

  • Team Spirit
  • Cloud9
  • Virtus.pro
  • Falcons
  • Heroic

With one slot available, we could still see the recent Major champions NAVI invited, or even FaZe Clan as the runner-ups.

As for the venue, Fissure announced they are moving their studio to a private location in Belgrade, Serbia. There, they will be able to "bring our viewers quality content, a cozy atmosphere, and a beautiful game", according to Nikolay Vesnin, CEO of Fissure.
