The current season of BLAST Pro Series will be finished by the final tournament in Bahrain, which is scheduled for December 12-14. Four teams from Europe and North America are set to participate in the Global Final event.
The list of participants was formed according to the results of all championships of the series in 2019. In total, six events were held throughout this season, featuring stops in São Paulo, Miami, Madrid, Los Angeles, Moscow, and Copenhagen. The highest amount of points was earned by FaZe Clan, Team Liquid, Astralis, and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
It’s worth mentioning that NiP is the only team out of four that hasn’t won a single BLAST trophy. The Swedish five placed third at the tournaments in Spain and Russia, and came fourth at the event in Brazil, thus securing 24 points.
The team list for BLAST Global Final
The whole championship will run within a double-elimination bracket, where every match is Best of 3. The organizers plan to host two games per day, with the final day being the only exception as it, besides a pair of Bo3 series, will feature the BLAST Pro Standoff showmatch.
