One the most prestigious Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) regional tournament in Europe and America, the BLAST Premier Fall 2020, returns tonight.
12 of the best CS:GO pro teams across the two regions were invited to battle it out for the US$425,000 total prize pool, precious points that count towards their BLAST Premier Circuit 2020 standings, and – most importantly – the much sought-after spot to the Global Finals, which can only be seated by the number one squad.
Here are the 12 teams competing in the BLAST Premier Fall 2020:
- Natus Vincere
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
- Evil Geniuses
- Team Vitality
- FaZe Clan
- FURIA Esports
- G2 Esports
The BLAST Premier Fall 2020 is divided into three stages: Regular Season, Showdown and Finals. In the first phase that is Regular Season, it’ll adopt a double-elimination best-of-three group stage format, with the top 2 teams of each group progressing straight to the finals; the bottom 2 teams will instead be given a second chance at Showdown, with only the top 2 teams advancing to the Finals. The grand finale will determine who’s the sole team to win entries to the BLAST Premier: Global Final 2020, as well as the US$225,000 cash prize.
The BLAST Premier Fall 2020 Regular Season will run from tonight (26 October) onwards at 11PM (GMT +8) daily. Catch the CS:GO action LIVE on eGG Network, or Twitch if you’re an online user. You can check out the official BLAST Premier website and Facebook for more info.
