One of the prominent emerging tournaments in the CSGO calendar is the BLAST Premier and tournament organisers have announced that the event is set to grow further as it expands into new regions.
The move will allow teams from countries such as Brazil and China the opportunity to compete in a series of qualifiers between July and September with a place in the final Qualifier and potentially the Fall Showdown, as well as a $25,000 participation fee, the prize on offer.
The Fall Showdown is scheduled to take place between October 12 and October 17 later this year.
The expanded qualifying campaign for this event will now see teams from five continents and over 60 countries able to compete for a shot at qualifying.
The new event will certainly be one of the best CSGO esports betting Brazil customers can enjoy a wager on over the course of the summer.
A total of eight BLAST Premier Qualifying Series events will decide which teams go through to October’s finals.
Teams competing in the qualifiers will be a mix of teams invited into the event, as well as teams that are able to qualify through a number of different feeder events across each region. These pre-qualifiers will allow hundreds of teams the opportunity to compete against each other for a place in the Qualifier.
The regions in which the qualifiers will be held, together with the dates and qualifier names (where known) are outlined below:
- July 9-11 – RTP Arena Cup (Iberia)
- August 26-28 – Dune Cup by Calyx (Middle East)
- September 3-5 – Nordic Masters by Pelaajat (Nordics)
- September 7-9 – Fantasyexpo Cup (Western Europe)
- September 10-12 – TBC (Eastern Europe)
- September 10-12 – Latin Power by FiReSPORTS (South America)
- Date Not Yet Set – TBC by Douyu (China)
- Date Not Yet Set – TBC (North America)
BLAST is expecting to announce more details on the qualifiers that are not yet fully confirmed in the coming weeks.
The eight winners of these qualifiers will move on to the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, which boasts a $162,500 prize pool and from that tournament the best teams can progress to the Fall Final and the World Final.

“Opportunity And Investment”
Speaking about the decision to expand the qualifiers, Andrew Haworth, the Commissioner for BLAST Premier, commented:
“The Spring Qualifiers were a huge success and we are delighted to be able to build on that by expanding into new regions, offering more places in the Fall Showdown and investing $200,000 via participation fees into these teams’ long-ter futures.”
“We approached the 2021 season with the aim of creating more opportunity and investment into regions around the world – we feel we are on the right path to achieving that and look forward to seeing another set of qualifiers packed with big upsets and brilliant CS:GO.”
The BLAST Premier is a rapidly growing tournament that is as popular with punters looking for the best CSGO betting lines, as it is with the teams and players that want to compete in this growing global tournament.
