    The Accor Arena will be the destination after finishing all the Legends Stage matches, a stage where history was made as the underdogs prevailed while the best teams crumbled.

    Counter-Strike is a game that no matter the name you represent, you'll fall if you don't deliver the best performances. With that, eight teams will be battling their way to crown themselves as the Champions of Paris Major live from the Accor Arena starting from the 18th until 21st.
