Following the success of Rocket League and League of Legends on BBC iPlayer, CS:GO is one of the longest running esports in the world and attracts 11 million players worldwide every month to the multiplayer game.
Featuring 12 elite teams from America and Europe, the series starts with the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown on November 24, followed by the BLAST Premier Fall Final on December 8 and then ending with the BLAST Premier Global Final on January 19, where the world’s best teams will battle for one of the hardest trophies to win in esports and a $1,000,000 championship prize pool.
UK-based team Endpoint have been invited to take part as they recently were the first British team to break into the CS:GO world top 30. They will be massive underdogs and hoping to cause an upset as they go up against some of the world’s best teams.
The BLAST Premier tournaments can be watched on BBC iPlayer, starting with the Fall Showdown on Tuesday, November 24 – Sunday, November 29.
