If you had been following the early PGL Stockholm betting markets, then you will know that Natus Vincere (NAVI) were the strong favourites to win the title.

Well this weekend, the team went out and proved just why they were the clear pick for so many betting sites and esports betting fans as they produced a masterclass of CS:GO esports gaming to land the $1,000,000 first prize at the tournament.

Alongside that bumper cash prize, NAVI also picked up a number of other important awards including 1800 CSGO Pro Tour points, 4000 BLAST Premier points and a place in the BLAST Premier World Final 2021.

They join Gambit Esports, G2 Esports and Heroic as having clinched one of the eight spots available at this $1,000,000 esports tournament which takes place between 14th and 19th December.

However, after their stellar performance at the PGL Major over the last couple of weeks, they will likely be the team to beat at that forthcoming event.

Legend Status Well Deserved

As one of the eight teams designated as Legends for the PGL Major, NAVI were not involved in the opening Challengers Stage of the event, which saw a number of big name teams such as FaZe Clan, Virtus.pro, Heroic and Astralis make it through into the second phase of the tournament.

The New Legends Stage saw NAVI and the seven other legends enter the tournament and while two teams, Team Liquid and Evil Geniuses lost their Legends status after being eliminated at this stage of the tournament, the other six Legend teams, plus Virtus.pro and Heroic rolled on to the Champions Stage.
