Popular CS:GO tournament BLAST Pro has revealed Los Angeles as its next destination for this year’s events. The event will be the fourth iteration of the first-person competition this year.
Six teams will battle for $250,000
LA’s Galen Center, a multipurpose indoor arena at the University of Southern California, will play host. It can house approximately 10,000 fans. The League of Legends Season 2 World Championship previously called the venue home.
Between July 12 and 13, six teams will battle for their share of a $250,000 prize pool. The Los Angeles event follows Sao Paolo, Miami, and Madrid as the fourth iteration of the tournament in 2019.
While BLAST Pro Sao Paolo concluded last weekend, Miami and Madrid will take place soon. The Florida competition is set for April 12 and 13 at the Watsco Center in Miami. Next, the tournament will head to sunny Spain and the Madrid Arena on May 10 and 11. All tournaments follow the same format: six teams including one squad from the host country.
Four more host cities are yet to be announced this year. Moving from three locations in 2018 to a total of eight in 2019, it’s clear RFRSH Entertainment has big plans for BLAST Pro.
RFRSH has scored big with BLAST Pro
Besides growing in event size and frequency, BLAST Pro has also seen a growing number of businesses supporting it. RFRSH Entertainment has made a great effort to join forces with local market players.
Betway, Komodo, Turtle Beach, Epics Collectibles, Turkish Airlines, Fragbite, GLOBO TV, and Unibet are among the companies to enter deals with RFRSH for individual BLAST Pro events.
It’s an exciting time for the Dutch esports entertainment company, and with the current momentum, even more exciting times lay ahead.
