BLAST Premier Fall Final bracket set
BLAST has revealed the seeding and opening matchups of the upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Final, taking place from November 24-28, which will see many of the world's best teams return to play for the first time following the conclusion of PGL Major Stockholm.
The opening day of the $425,000 event will see the first round of the double-elimination bracket play out, with Vitality and Liquid, two teams who are reportedly soon to undergo lineup changes, kicking off the action with a rematch from their Fall Groups encounter that saw the French side come out on top 2-1.
The highlight matchup of the opening round is undoubtedly the debut of Astralis' lineup following their addition of former Complexity duo Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke and Benjamin "blameF" Bremer, which will see the new Danish squad lock horns with Ninjas in Pyjamas.
