HLTV Award Show to take place in January with live audience and new categories

HLTV announces that our biggest event yet, the HLTV Award Show 2022 presented by 1xBet, will take place on Saturday, January 14 in Stockholm, with a live broadcast on our Twitch channel. With this being the 10th anniversary of the Top 20 players list since the release of CS:GO, the show will be the celebration of not only this year’s achievements but Counter-Strike as a whole.

The ceremony will feature the unveiling of the #1 player of 2022, as well as the best team and highlight of the year selected by HLTV. In addition to the awards we gave out last year, during the inaugural award show, HLTV will for the first time also commemorate the best women’s player and team, as well as give out panel-voted awards for best IGL, coach, and more.
