The start of the new year will see the Premier Circuit kick off with the Spring Groups in January. Next year’s World Finals will be in November, as opposed to the usual December event every year.
The Spring Groups will be the first tier 1 LAN event of 2024 and the teams will move from the Spring Gruops to Katowice. The Spring Showdown takes place in March just before the first CS2 Major in Copenhagen.
The Fall Season kicks off in July and will end on November. With the Shanghai CS2 Major set to take place in December next year, BLAST had to make some adjustments to its tournament schedule.
The BLAST Premier Showdown events will no longer feature separate regions. Instead, BLAST will run one single 16-team showdown event bringing all the teams together to compete in the Showdown.
For the past few seasons, BLAST Premier Fall Finals have taken place at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen. However, next year, the Fall Finals will take place at the Forum Copenhagen in Denmark. The venue, with its 10,000 seating capacity is a multipurpose indoor arena will host the Fall Finals next year.
Team Vitality won the BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2023 after a 2-0 victory over FaZe Clan. FaZe, who were on an 18-match win streak were eyeing their 19th victory. They had also won their last three LAN events before the Fall Finals but came undone by a surprise map pick and better performance by Team Vitality.
