BLAST Premier’s Fall Final Will Have Fans in Attendance in Copenhagen
BLAST Premier hasn’t had a live crowd in attendance since February 2020, and that’s going to change with the Fall Final! Of course, it makes sense, with the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that the world is getting back to normal again, more events are starting to see crowds join events, and BLAST Premier’s Fall Final is no exception. At the iconic Copenhagen Royal Arena, a live audience will be in attendance to see the best of the best throw-down in CSGO action.
Eight Teams Battling For 425,000 Prize Pool:
BLAST Premier’s Fall Final will be the first BLAST event in front of fans in almost 20 months, and we have to believe the fans are excited to return. The 12,000 seat arena in Copenhagen will have the best teams in CSGO fighting for a spot in December’s World Final. Hopefully, it will be a packed house of screaming fans, waiting eagerly to see if their team has what it takes.
Denmark’s synonymous with some of BLAST’s biggest CSGO moments, so it’s nice to see the return of BLAST Premier CSGO events be in such an area. The last three events at the Copenhagen Royal Arena sold out in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and it surely will again in 2021
The November Fall Final for BLAST Premier has six teams from the Fall Groups (September 16-26), and the top two teams from the Fall Showdown (October 12-17). The Fall Final winners receive the lion’s share of the $425,000 prize pool and qualify for the World Finals. That’s where the real money is, with a $1M prize pool awaits.
Andrew Haworth, Commissioner for BLAST Premier, said:
“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. We’ve had to adapt over the last year and tried to bring that intimate arena feel to our broadcasts and productions despite the online-only format – we’ve enjoyed the challenge of pivoting, and feel this Royal Arena Fall Final will only benefit from the flexibility and technology innovation we’ve introduced during this time.
“We can’t wait to deliver one of the most memorable Counter-Strike events in recent years. We will be following government guidelines closely on event and travel restrictions, where we have a number of contingencies in place to ensure the event is safe for the players through to the fans.”
The last three days of the Fall Final will be played in front of a full capacity arena, and the first three days will take place behind closed doors. If you’re interested in going to the venue, the presale begins on June 16th at 11 AM CEST. The public sale begins on June 18th, at 11 AM CEST on the Blast Premier site. It’s certainly going to be exciting to see CSGO fans at an event again, and we’re glad BLAST Premier can get back to having them in person.
