BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2018 - Viewer’s guide

All important things you need to know in one place!

Six world class teams from all over the world will return once again to the capital of Denmark to compete in a $250,000 prize pool event. BLAST Pro Series will take place November 2-3 in the 16,000 seated “Royal Arena”. The format of the event sees the six directly invited teams play each other in a round-robin format with three best-of-one matches running simultaneously. The group stage will also run on both playing days, with nine total matches been played in the arena on Saturday while the best of the groups will then face off in a best-of-three grand final in the early evening. 

As a new thing, we can look forward to a bonus match called “BLAST Pro Stand-off” (will be played before the grand final), where the team placing third in the group stage picks another remaining side to play in a match featuring five 1-vs-1 aim duels for a chance to win the $20,000 cash prize.
