We look forward to working together to deliver unique content, digital integrations and activations to the global gaming community at one of the world’s most revered and popular esports events.

Tom Elton, Ballantine’s Global Head of Culture & Partnerships, on behalf of Absolut, Ballantine’s and Jameson, said:

Our brands are all about the shared moments in life and with esports at the centre of new communities across the globe, we are delighted to announce Absolut, Ballantine’s, and Jameson’s partnership with the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023. This year marks the 10-year celebration and final ever CS:GO Majors. With online gaming continuing to grow in popularity, we’re also thrilled that this championship will take place in Pernod Ricard’s home country of France.

The Paris Major is set to be the final CS:GO Major, as Counter-Strike 2 will be launching post the event. The Major will celebrate ten years of Counter-Strike Majors and have a whopping £1.25m prize pool.

The 2023 BLAST Major held in Paris will be one of the many sporting events that will be held in France over the next couple of years, including the 2023 Rugby World Cup, the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the 2025 Rugby League World Cup.
