CS:GO BLAST Premier History

Blast premier series betting

The BLAST Premier Series is a prestigious professional esports circuit founded in January 2020. Denmark-based esports media company RFRSH initially organized it before rebranding to BLAST.

The BLAST Premier replaced the earlier concept of the BLAST Pro Series, a series of standalone single tournaments worldwide. BLAST Premier is an evolution that became a year-long circuit that typically begins in January and ends in December of the same year, culminating in the BLAST Premier World Final.

The first season of BLAST Premier cemented itself as a top-tier tournament, with an incredible prize pool of $4.25 million. In its first year, BLAST Premier attracted top competing CS:GO teams from across the globe, including Fnatic, Team Liquid, and Team Vitality, among others.

The BLAST Premier has several major partners and sponsors, including Intel, Twitch, and Betway. It has also partnered with several popular CS:GO content creators and streamers to bolster the tournament and increase its popularity among fans.

As a newly-established event, the BLAST Premier has expanded its reach to include other international regions, with events in Europe, Asia, and North America. It continues to evolve and has swiftly become one of the most highly-anticipated CS:GO events on the calendar.
