Here’s the schedule for the BLAST Premier Global Final|Dot Esports
BLAST has revealed the first-round matches for the final of its first circuit year.
The main schedule and opening matches for the BLAST Premier Global Final, the very first huge CS: GO event of 2021, have actually been revealed. Eight teams will take on in a double-elimination style bracket with $1 million on the line.
The opening match starts at 10:30 am CT on Tuesday, Jan. 19, and features the resurgent Astralis fresh off a win at the IEM Global Difficulty taking on the American Spring Finals winners in Evil Geniuses. Later on that day, at 1:30 pm CT, just recently moved star NiKo and G2 Esports deal with off against the breakout NA group of 2020, FURIA Esports.
Wednesday, Jan. 20 starts with a meeting at 7:30 am CT between the BLAST Spring Finals winners in Complexity and the BLAST Fall Finals winners in Group Vigor. Vigor completed 2020 strong with wins at BLAST and IEM Beijing. And while Complexity struggled to liquidate the year, some of their finest wins have come at BLAST events.
The last first-round match will see the main debut of FalleN on Group Liquid when they deal with off versus s1mple and Natus Vincere at 10:30 am CT. The action on Jan. 20 will complete with the very first of the lower bracket matches, indicating one group’s journey will be over by the end of the second day.
The lower and upper bracket matches will take location from Jan. 21 to 23, culminating in a consolation final on Jan. 24 at 10:30 am CT and the grand finals at 2:30 pm CT. The winner will claim the BLAST Global prize and $600,000.
After the dust settles, the BLAST battlefield will not lay inactive for too long, though. The BLAST Spring 2021 season will begin on Feb. 4.
