Eight of the best CS:GO teams in the world will play in the BLAST Premier World Final, the last S-tier event of the year, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The tournament will run from Tuesday, Dec. 14 to Sunday, Dec. 19 and will see the eight squads fight for their share of the $1 million prize pool.
Natus Vincere have won all of the tier-one competitions over the few past months, including the PGL Stockholm Major in November. The CIS powerhouse are the undisputed best CS:GO team in the world, but all of the squads at the BLAST Premier World Finals have a chance to put on a good show. G2, Vitality, and Ninjas in Pyjamas are the favorites to take down Na’Vi, while Gambit and Heroic will try to get back to their old form.
The BLAST Premier World Final will use a double-elimination bracket and all matches will be best-of-three series. This tournament, unlike the Fall Final in November, won’t be played in front of a live audience because of the rise of coronavirus cases caused by the Omicron variant.
