Zowie is a well-known hardware brand most famous for its computer and mice lineup used by many Counter-Strike players. BenQ Corporation acquired ZOWIE in 2015, subsequently renaming its entire esports and gaming lineup of products to ZOWIE. The ZOWIE lineup consists of monitors and mice.

This is not the first time ZOWIE and PGL are working together on a Counter-Strike event. The peripherals and monitor company was the official monitor partner of PGL Major Stockholm in 2021.

The company has also collaborated with other high-profile esports companies, including a major partnership with Riot Games for VCT EMEA, VCT Pacific and VCT Americas, also focusing on monitors. ZOWIE was also the official monitor partner for the last-ever CS:GO Major, the Blast.tv Paris Major, and the ESL Pro League Season 15.

Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe, commented: “We are thrilled to be the Official Monitor Partner for the CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024. This collaboration underscores our unwavering commitment to the Esports community as a leading provider of Esports equipment. We are excited to contribute our technological innovations to this highly anticipated landmark event of the year.”

The upcoming CS2 Major in Copenhagen will be the first-ever Major in Counter-Strike 2, and will take place in the second half of March 2024 in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen. PGL recently announced betting company 1xBet as the official betting partner of the event, and has also previously partnered with esports betting services provider Oddin.gg and online tournament platform Challengermode for the event’s data rights and qualifiers.
