PGL continues to remain tight-lipped about the CS:GO Major location despite crossing the reported deadline.
PGL has not announced publicly their decision on the CS:GO Major location, despite 23rd July being the reported deadline.
The Swedish government has taken steps to comply with both the primary guarantees requested by the organizers of the upcoming Major.
In their last update PGL had stated that they were in touch with two other European countries (unnamed) who had already agreed to their primary requests.
No Word From PGL: Sweden Under Doubt as Host of Upcoming CS:GO Major
The Swedish government quickly worked on a solution to comply with PGL’s requests and at the moment seemingly have all their bases covered. However, PGL continues to remain tight-lipped about the situation.
The Swedish Esports Association, Ninjas in Pajamas, Godsent, and Lilmix, who were engaged in a dialogue with PGL have reportedly not heard anything new from the organizer since last Sunday.
I hope that PGL makes an overall assessment of the information we have provided to be able to announce that the planning for the CS: GO Major in Stockholm is complete. We view positively that PGL does not make a hasty decision and hope that this only means that they review the information provided.

Sweden chances of retaining Stockholm as the location of the upcoming CS:GO Major was likely boosted yesterday, after it introduced some changes to allow professional CS:GO players to enter Sweden despite the temporary entry ban. However, the lack of communication from PGL regarding this matter has seemingly cast a shadow of doubt on whether the tournament will actually take place in Stockholm.
