Skyesports Masters 2024 CS2: Schedule, results, streams, and more

India makes its return to top-tier CS at last.

Indian-based tournament organizer Skyesports saw its Counter-Strike 2 circuit reach its highest point yet with the Skyesports Masters 2024, an eight-team tournament that featured a mix of top-tier talent from Europe and the very best in Indian CS2 go head-to-head for the lion’s share of $350,000 USD from April 8.

The event was originally supposed to be held on LAN in Mumbai, a major step in the revitalization of Indian Counter-Strike, but organizers struggled to secure a venue due to country elections blocking approval. Instead, Skyesports Masters 2024 was run out of Europe with local qualifier Gods Reign given full travel support to compete.

Skyesports Masters was originally designed as a franchised Indian league but after Valve’s August 2023 announcement to limit closed franchised leagues, a change was made to an eight-team double-elimination bracket.

Five teams received direct invites to the tournament, while three teams had to brave qualifiers to attend: Two through Europe, and one in India. The eight squads were reseeded into the bracket with all matches being best-of-three. The grand final was a best-of-five.

Apart from the $105,000 prize purse for winning Skyesports Masters, the champions will also qualify for the Skyesports Championship 2024, which is a yet-to-be-announced event featuring winners of past tournaments hosted by the organizer.
