RFRSH Entertainment has picked yet another new destination for their BLAST pro Series tournaments. The company has revealed BLAST Pro Series Moscow, the first BLAST event to take place in Russia.
The event will take place at the VTB Arena from September 13 to 14. Up to 7,000 fans will be able to attend the tournament and watch their favorites play for the $250,000 prize pool.
Three teams have already been announced in the form of Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and ENCE. Three more teams should be revealed should the tournament follows its normal structure.
“BLAST Pro Series is stopping by one of the world’s greatest Megacities on Earth: Moscow, Russia. This incredible metropolitan is known for its beautiful architecture, rich history and breathtaking gold-domed churches. Aside from that, Moscow is the capital of not only Russia, but the CIS region which has produced some of the greatest Counter-Strike players in history. A perfect location for BLAST Pro Series,” an official post on the BLAST Pro Series website reads.
“BLAST Pro Series Moscow 19 is one of the last tournaments in the 2019 Season. The four best teams of the Season will play the Season Grand Final in December. The four best teams currently on the 2019 Season Leaderboard are: Astralis, Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, and Ninjas in Pyjamas. But Moscow can be the city to change it all.”
The fifth stop of the 2019 season, Moscow was preceded by São Paulo, Miami, Madrid and Los Angeles. A total of seven events will be played culminating in the $500,000 BLAST Pro Series Global Final.
