Valve revealed how the fans will be able to support their favourite CS:GO teams.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is getting its final major tournament before the big update becomes available to everyone and now Valve has revealed the associated digital merch the fans can pick up to support their favourite teams.

Buying team stickers, player autographs and the Paris 2023 Viewer Pass will result in half the proceeds going to the players, teams and organisations taking part in the tournament.

Unfortunately, Valve didn't clarify how the money will be split between organisations or between players and organisations.

The Viewer Pass will grant fans the Paris 2023 Event Coin, access to the Pick'em Challenge, team graffiti, flair and access to Paris 2023 Souvenir Packages.

Paris 2023 Event Coin can be upgraded and each upgrade will grant the holder a Souvenir Token that can be redeemed for a Souvenir Package from the match of their choice. The package contains gold stickers of the teams and the map the match was played on.

It is possible to earn up to three Souvenir Tokens through the Pick'Em Challenge but the Viewer Pass+3, which evidently costs more, will grant three tokens immediately. Additionally, the tokens can be purchased on their own after activating the Viewer Pass.

Team and Player Autograph Capsules will feature paper, glitter, holo and gold stickers for those wanting to go the extra mile in their fandom. After the finals, Champions Autograph Capsules will become available for purchase and will hold autographs for all the players on the winning team.

Paris Major kicks off on May 8, 2023.
