Best photos from BLAST Premier Spring Final

Take a look at the photos captured during the BLAST Spring Final, which ended last weekend with Natus Vincere lifting the trophy.

After an exciting five days of high-octane CS:GO that culminated in the Altice Arena in Lisbon in front of a crowd of Portuguese fans, let's relive the action in Lisbon with the help of photos captured by HLTV's own Josip "brcho" Brtan.

NAVI's victory in their debut with Denis "⁠electroNic⁠" Sharipov as the in-game leader and Viktor "⁠sdy⁠" Orudzhev as their new addition, Vitality's greatest success since the inception of the French-Danish roster, and Abdul "⁠degster⁠" Gasanov's successful stand-in stint with OG take center stage in our compilation of the best shots from the event, which you can scroll through below.

On a sunny day in a Lisbon park, even something as mundane as a media day can have its wholesome moments
ENCE had Spinx back after the Israeli was forced to sit out IEM Dallas
From day one you could tell how much degster was enjoying his time standing in for OG, beating NAVI in the opener
There were no hard feelings between former Sprout teammates dycha and faveN, hugging after ENCE took down BIG
paiN had their moments despite being massive underdogs, taking a map off Vitality on day two
There were good vibes all around as G2 huddled in preparation for their FaZe match
That was the case inside the server as well, as G2 clinched first place in the group over FaZe
OG continued to surprise with stand-in degster spearheading their way to the top spot in Group B
NAVI recovered from a shaky start, showing an incredibly high ceiling with sdy in a landslide win against FaZe
Vitality were elated as they made their first top four with the new lineup, beating then-world No. 2 team ENCE
NAVI took revenge for an earlier loss to OG with s1mple looking in godlike form as always
NiKo was hyping up the Portuguese crowd as the tournament moved into the Altice Arena for the semis
apEX & co. did one better, moving past G2 to their first grand final in 2022
"The most important thing is that we started believing again," dupreeh said in the stage interview with Banks
A source of great pride in Portugal, fox took to the Lisbon stage for a showmatch alongside his compatriots
Against the Portuguese team was a mix of players from FaZe, G2, and OG
The Batman himself was a showman, as usual
NAVI and Vitality lined up to fight for the title
And it was another convincing win that saw NAVI lift the BLAST trophy
The fans made their favorite known in the best way they knew how
