Lisbon to host BLAST Premier Spring Final

The Portuguese capital city will play host to teams like FaZe, Natus Vincere, and G2 in June.

BLAST has announced that Lisbon, Portugal, will play host to the Spring Final tournament from June 15-19. The event venue will be the 15,000-seater Altice Arena, which hosted a BLAST Pro Series tournament at the end of 2018 and saw Astralis come out victorious at the peak of their era.

BLAST returns to Lisbon after three and a half years

Six out of eight teams participating in the event have been confirmed so far, coming from the Spring Groups stage which kicked off tier-one competition in 2022. Debuting with new squads, FaZe, Vitality, OG, and G2 earned their place at the Final along with BIG and Natus Vincere.

The remaining two teams will come from the Spring Showdowns in Europe and North America, set to be played from April 27-May 1. FURIA and Liquid will be the two biggest favorites to grab the NA spot, while in Europe there will be fierce competition featuring four current top 10 teams: Heroic, ENCE, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Astralis.

nice, but i want to see BLAST host a Major, i want to see them get out of their "comfort zone" and see if they can still deliver a top notch quality production/event.

Wdym get out of their "comfort zone"? Have they not been delivering top notch quality consistently for the past 2 years?

i mean as not doing 8 team events. doing a 24 team event, over the course of 2 weeks, of 12hours production x day. This means getting out of their comfort zone. over the past 2 years first year was clown-fiesta events, 2nd they improved a lot, and now they are one of the most respected T.Os. so.. the culmination should be hosting a Major. That they are not bidding for it..

BLAST has their own closed circuit, so a 24-team event is out of the question. You're basically asking them to compete with ESL by running 2 week events. The current Spring/Fall Final and World Final system is fine as is, adding any more would quickly over-saturate the market, same thing happened with ESL. There is no reason to go for the major, as you said, BLAST is a highly respected T.O. why waste money running more events AND pitching for the major, which again, means they have to compete with ESL/PGL.

I'm perfectly fine with their current events. If 8-teams events make their level of quality sustainable then by all means. BUT they should pitch for the major at least ONCE.

I don't think he wants to change blasts format, but just have them host a major If you host a major, obviously you have to follow through with Valves guidelines which require a vastly more expansive format. Ultimately i don't see why Blast shouldn't. Honestly would make sence if Denmark got a major and blast would host it. Ik flag checks out, but come on. We have contributed so much to the game

They even didn't allowed Russian players play with neutral status so I really doubt they can hold
