The BLAST Premier World Final 2021 will be played offline in Copenhagen starting on the 14th of December and running until the 19th of December.
A total of eight teams will be taking each other on in a double-elimination bracket, meaning that losing a single series does not mean they’re eliminated straight away, with an upper and lower bracket, culminating in a Grand Final. All matches are best-of-three and the winner will take home a grand prize of $500,000.
Some of the best teams in the world will be attending, such as Team Vitality, who won IEM Winter 2021, just like runner-up Ninjas in Pyjamas. Other candidates include teams such as G2 Esports and Team Liquid. Here’s the full list of teams:
- Gambit Esports
- G2 Esports
- Natus Vincere
- Team Vitality
- Team Liquid
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
These are the matchups in the Upper Bracket, kicking things off:
- Natus Vincere vs. Team Liquid (14/12 – 16:30 CET)
- Gambit Esports vs. Heroic (14/12 – 19:30 CET)
- G2 Esports vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas (15/12 – 13:30 CET)
- Team Vitality vs. Astralis (15/12 – 16:30 CET)
