It was a no-brainer to participate for all the teams and players. We are excited to be competing against each other."
Here's the full team list for BLAST Premier 2020:
Ninjas in Pyjamas
The tournament series begins in January with a London studio series and a setup that promises to bring fans even closer to the players than they've ever been before. It marks the Spring Season and will have the team's split into three groups of four. The top two teams from each will advance to the seasonal finals and be joined by two more teams from a "showdown" event.
The Fall Season will follow later in the year using the same structure, while the Global Final will conclude the series. The final event will feature not just the best teams from the Spring and Fall seasons, but also the best-performing teams from non-BLAST events of the year.
BLAST Premier 2020 features a total prize pool of $4,250,000. Each season will have $1,375,000 up for grabs, while the Global Final offers up $1,500,000. The global champions will take home $1,000,000, that's two-thirds of the final event's prize pool.
