Cool locations, innovative format, unique experiences
Nicolas Maurer, CEO of Team Vitality, on behalf of the twelve teams said “BLAST came to all of the teams with a proposition that is set to transform the industry. We believe the BLAST approach of producing best in class entertainment will continue to attract large new audiences as a global series in cool locations, innovative format and unique experiences.

BLAST has created an open ecosystem that enables up and coming teams and high performing teams to be able to potentially challenge for the Global Final in 2020. The whole year culminates in our Global Final, which features not only the best teams from our own competition, but also the best-performing teams from the entire year (eg Major winners) – effectively turning it into the crowning of the ultimate Champion.
Spring Showdown and Final go online
BLAST Premier Spring Showdown and the BLAST Premier Spring Final events will be played remotely in response to recent global concerns. These tournaments will be an immersive live broadcast unlike anything done before and sit within BLAST Sessions, a broadcast season of competitive and entertainment programming.
