CS:GO Major Could Snub Sweden Who Are 'Running Out Of Time'

Swedish authorities have been smacked with a final conundrum for the future of esports in the nation, as their most prized event could be snatched from their grasp if a decision is not made surrounding COVID-19 protocols.

The government recently declined to host the richest event in esports history, in Dota 2's The International 10, failing to classify the event as a major sporting competition and ruling out esports as a whole for the foreseeable future. 

TI10 has now been switched to Bucharest, Romania, but Sweden's sweetheart is facing expulsion too, and they're a matter of weeks from breaking up regardless of their final decision. 

The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive PGL Major is set to be held in Stockholm, Sweden this year, although the Swedish government have yet to make a decision on whether they will allow the $2,000,000 tournament to be held.

Time is now "running out".

PGL Major Say "Time Is Running Out" For Sweden

According to reports from Swedish publication 'Expressen', Silviu Stroie, CEO of PGL, has written that "Time is running out" for the government to make a decision, meaning they may move the Major themselves. 

Stroie added "There is no new development, we can decide any day now to move it from Sweden.

"We are still hopeful of getting the exemption we requested to bring in the players, but there has been no indication at all as to whether it will happen or not."

Swedish esports Association Call on government to allow CS:GO Major

The same report revealed that the Swedish Esports Association has released a statement, targeted at "responsible ministers, ministries and committees."

The letter reportedly says "It would contribute to a greatly reduced reputation for arranging major international e-sports tournaments in Sweden.

"With this letter, we want to call on responsible ministers, ministries and committees to follow up on the promises made and implement the changes required for e-sports events to be implemented in Sweden."

Personalities such as Jonathan "Loda" Berg and Ninjas in Pyjamas CEO Hicham Chahine have allegedly signed the letter too, in a bid to allow Sweden to host their beloved CS:GO major.
