With the Spring Final starting running from 15th to 20th June, and more battles to come, for the first time since February 2020, BLAST Premier action will be back on stage, as their organizers have revealed their Fall Final for the 2021 season will be held with a live audience, from the Copenhagen Royal Arena in Denmark.
With a $ 425,000 USD prize pool and a guaranteed spot to the World Final 2021, the BLAST Premier Fall Final will be one of the first major events in CS:GO competitive to bring LAN tournaments back to the landscape, with its last three days being played in front of a full capacity arena.
In a press release featuring Andrew Haworth, BLAST Premier’s commissioner, he stated that “BLAST has been eagerly awaiting this day for some time now, we’ve hugely missed arena events and being able to take our shows to CS:GO fans all around the world – nothing can replace the feeling of players entertaining and interacting with a live audience.”
Since the start of the global pandemic, many esports scenes were affected and struck by the move to online formats, as these make it more difficult to sustain international competitions consistently, with examples like Worlds 2020 being among the few which could make it properly during the last year.
As with the Spring Final, the Fall Final will feature the best six teams from the Fall Groups, along with two qualified from a group of countries around the world in the Fall Showdown. Both competitions will be held during the months of September and October respectively.
Tickets for the event will be on sale starting 16th June with a special pre-sale, and on 18th June with a public sale, with prices going from 80 € to 249 €, plus ticket service fees.
The BLAST Premier Fall Final will be held at the Copenhagen Royal Arena in Denmark, on 24-28th November 2021. More details will be revealed as the tournament approaches.
