Since 2013, Valve has sponsored the prize pool of the game’s most illustrious tournament, giving players and teams a top accolade to chase across months, years, and careers. To date, 19 of these Majors have been put on, with 13 different organizations claiming iterations of the trophy. Astralis holds the record with four total wins and their team was the only one to win three straight. Natus Vincere, better known as NAVI, holds the record for most grand finals appearances with six, turning two of those appearances into victories.

The reigning champions are NAVI, who claimed their second trophy as an organization but hold the honor and distinction of winning the first Major in Counter-Strike 2.
