CS:GO community raises over $70 million for clubs and players over the past year
Valve has announced via its official website that over the past 12 months, the CS:GO community has raised over $70 million for esports clubs and players. These revenues came from the sale of stickers and Viewer Passes.
Valve traditionally gives only half of the proceeds from the sale of in-game items dedicated to Majors. Thus, it can be assumed that the total amount that the company receives from fans of the game is much higher than that indicated as income for teams and players.
Valve's press release also notes that CS:GO is now in the best state in its history. Among other things, the company stated that over the past 12 months, the shooter has averaged over 20 million monthly unique players.
The publication of Valve's internal statistics is dedicated to the 10th anniversary of CS:GO, in honor of which the company released a sticker capsule, special coin and new maps. You can read more about the update in the publication on our website via this link.
