BLAST Premier Global Final 2020 is on a countdown to the last event of the season and finishing the 2020 circuit.
Competing for their wedge of the $1 million prize pool, a set of 8 top-quality teams will compete between January 19th-24th to break it down.
The tournament format is Double Elimination Bracket, and all the matches are BO3.
Previously BLAST Premier wasn’t a league but a 2-days tournament called BLAST Pro Series, created in 2017, and had Astralis as the most winning team with 4 titles.
By 2020, the organization decided to do a twist and created a professional CS:GO league called BLAST Premier.
“The next evolution of our tournament series is going to blow people away. We have spent months developing the right format. A format that will create the greatest entertainment product for fans at events and viewers watching across the world.” – Robbie Douek, BLAST CEO
The league is divided into two regions: Europe and North America.
The series is then separated into two seasons: Spring season and Fall season, with a duration of 4 months each, and now the global finals.
The principal goal is to bring all the best teams together and provide the fans with the most enjoyable entertainment.
