BLAST’s season closer will feature eight of the best teams from across 2024.

BLAST Premier World Finals 2024 is the culmination of the TO's year-long series of events. With eight teams qualifying from a variety of paths, the event rewards success across the calendar with a grand showdown in Abu Dhabi. So far, two teams have qualified for the BLAST Premier World Finals.

Which teams take part in BLAST Premier World Finals 2024?

BLAST Premier World Finals 2024 will have eight participating teams. This includes invites for the winners at five of the year's biggest events. BLAST includes its own Spring and Fall Finals alongside ESL's Championship level events, IEM Katowice and IEM Cologne.

This year, there is a singular invite for the Major champions, with the second Major held after the event. Finally, the TO will hand out three invites based on the Premier Leaderboard maintained throughout the year.

Here's the complete list of participating teams at BLAST Premier World Finals 2024:

  • Team Spirit - IEM Katowice Champions
  • Natus Vincere - PGL Copenhagen Major Champions
  • TBD - IEM Cologne Champions
  • TBD - BLAST Premier Fall Finals Champions
  • TBD - BLAST Premier 2024 Leaderboard
  • TBD - BLAST Premier 2024 Leaderboard
  • TBD - BLAST Premier 2024 Leaderboard
  • TBD - BLAST Premier 2024 Leaderboard

It's important to note that BLAST does not hand invites to second place finishers at these events in the case of a repeat champion. Instead, they cede the invite to the BLAST Premier 2024 Leaderboard. The above list will be updated regularly to reflect all updates, while you can check out the live rankings here.

When is the BLAST Premier World Finals 2024?

The event is scheduled to kick off on November 13. The Grand Finals will conclude on November 17 before the CS circus moves into the Major swing. In previous years the event has been held at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, across the street from the iconic F1 season closer.

The venue for 2024 hasn't been confirmed yet, but is likely to remain as BLAST's partnership with AD Gaming continues.

The Penultimate event of the year

Unlike previous years, the event will no longer mark the end of the CS calendar, with the Shanghai Major right after. While that takes away some of the appeal, it also will boost the level of CS played at the event, as now teams are incentivized to be in top form.
