BLAST Premier 2021 Schedule Has Been Revealed and Unites All CSGO Majors

by in CS:GO | Dec, 14th 2020

The BLAST Premier 2021 schedule has been revealed for CSGO, and it’s going to be one exciting year of competition! What’s interesting is that this tournament series will be both the first and last event of the CSGO calendar for 2021. How is that? Because BLAST Premier 2021 is going to unite all of the major CSGO tournaments under one banner. This way, there will be ample opportunities to prove a team is the best CSGO team in the world. Best of all? All CSGO teams around the globe will be able to try and prove their mettle and skill!

We do a lot of CSGO coverage here at Esports Talk, so we’re very excited to see what’s next!

Inclusivity Matters

Seeing that the schedule for BLAST Premier 2021 is going to let all teams try and participate is truly exciting. All regions will have a shot at being the CSGO World Champions. Thanks to the new worldwide BLAST Premier Qualifying Series, you’ve got a chance to show the world what you have. To those teams who make it out of the regional qualifiers, they’ll earn a spot in the BLAST Premier Spring and Fall Showdowns.

From there, the best of the best will make their way to the Spring and Fall Finals. Of course, this all leads to the BLAST Premier World Final, with huge money and prestige on the line. BLAST points out that while both Showdowns are open to all regions, the Spring Showdown is focused on the Americas and Europe, while the Fall Showdown is focused on Europe, Asia, and Oceania. 

Another new change is a certain positive: Non-member teams that compete in BLAST Premier events will also receive a participation fee upon completing their attendance. So even if you aren’t a member of the BLAST teams, you can still make at least something

Money Talks

From what we understand, up to 32 teams can take part in the seven BLAST Premier events across the CSGO schedule for 2021. That means we could have 80 teams in the qualifying events. There’s the potential for up to 286 CSGO matches to go down in this year. Who doesn’t want more exciting CSGO in their life, anyway?

Robbie DOuek, CEO of BLAST spoke about these changes:

“BLAST Premier will be back for 2021 with fans set to enjoy more top tier CS:GO than ever before. We will unite all leading tournaments and performers from across the calendar year, with all roads leading towards December’s World Final where $1million in prize money will be up for grabs and a chance to be crowned the world’s best Counter Strike team. 

“Next year’s format will be the most inclusive on the Counter-Strike scene and offer teams from regions all over the world an opportunity to compete in our highly-anticipated events, thanks to our new qualifying series.”
