BLASTtv Paris Major income from sticker sales

According to reports from HLTV and Dust2 Brasil, the last CS:GO major in its history, the Paris Major, saw a significant increase in the sale of stickers and capsules compared to the three previous majors combined. The total revenue from the sale of Paris Major stickers is estimated to have exceeded $110 million.

The revenue generated from the sale of stickers is divided based on the number of capsules sold. The 24 teams participating in the major were divided into three pods representing the Legends, Challengers, and Contenders qualifying groups.

Income from Paris Major stickers

The Contenders capsule, which featured teams like Liquid and FaZe, was reported to be the top seller. Each team in this capsule reportedly earned approximately $4.5 million, with players receiving an additional $250,000 each.

The Legends capsule, which included teams like NAVI, FURIA, Fnatic, and eventual champions Vitality, secured the second highest sales. It brought in $3.5 million for teams and $200,000 for individual players.

The Challengers capsule, featuring teams like G2 and NiP, generated $2.6 million per team, with players earning anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000.

Based on this data and Valve’s official data from previous majors, the BLAST Paris Major outperformed the combined revenue of the previous three majors. For some historical context, the StarLadder Major Berlin paid out just over $11 million, while the PGL Stockholm and Antwerp Majors, influenced by the rise in popularity of Counter-Strike during the COVID pandemic, paid out a combined total of around $70 million.

However, the record-breaking numbers achieved at the PGL Majors were surpassed by BLAST Paris, partly due to it being the final CS:GO Major. This event held a special significance, and many players anticipated a significant increase in sticker prices with the transition to CS2. Valve themselves contributed to this income by keeping the capsules available in the game’s main menu for an extended period.

The introduction of sticker capsules also sparked a surge in player numbers. CS:GO reached its highest monthly average player count just as the stickers were released. The average number of players remained notably higher throughout September while the stickers were still available for purchase.
