BLAST Premier Fall Final will be played in Copenhagen´s Royal Arena!

The Final will finally be played in front of people, after over 20 months away from the fans!


The BLAST Premier has announced the plans for the final to take place with fans in the iconic Royal Arena in Copenhagen. Since February 2020, there have been no fans at the stand, but we will have a live audience for the first time in nearly two years!

The arena capacity is 12,000 and will play host to the best teams in the world, there be a prize pool of $425,000 on the line and a place in December´s hotly-anticipated World Final.

Denmark´s capital is the home of BLAST and the Royal Arena is synonymous with some of the tournament organizer´s most famous moments. In 2017,2018 and 2019 the venues were all sold out.

The Commissioner for BLAST Premier Andrew Haworth stated the following:

BLAST has been eagerly awaiting this day for some time now, we've hugely missed arena events and being able to take our shows to CS:GO fans all around the world - nothing can replace the feeling of players entertaining and interacting with a live audience.

We've had to adapt over the last year and tried to bring that intimate arena to feel to our broadcasts and productions despite the online-only format - we've enjoyed the challenge of pivoting and feel this Royal Arena Fall Final will only benefit from the flexibility and technology innovation we've introduced during this time.

It is going to be exciting to see how the teams will react with the audience on the stands again, after so much time home in their apartments playing the games and finals. The experience is something else when there are thousands of people sitting there watching in person, and not just digital on the computer.

To this the Commissioner stated:

We can't wait to deliver one of the most memorable Counter-Strike events in recent years. We will be following government guidelines closely on event and travel restrictions, where we have a number of contingencies in place to ensure the event is safe for the players through to the fans.

The last three days will be played in front of a crowd (November 26-28) while the two first days of the event will take place behind closed curtains.

Tickets for the event will go on presale from Wednesday, 16th June (11AM CEST) and on public sale from Friday, 18th June (11AM CEST).
