BLAST Showdown invites announced for EU and NA ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

BLAST has revealed the team invites for the American and European Spring Showdown events, reducing the American event to eight teams.

For the European Spring ShowdownMAD Lions, fnatic, and mousesports have received direct invites to the event. These invites to mouseesports and fnatic come as a bit of a surprise because these teams were left off the list of partnered teams for 2020, causing an uproar in the community. Nevertheless, we will see them fighting in the Showdown for a spot in the EU Spring Finals.

The American Spring Showdown sees five teams invited — Cloud9, Chaos, FURIA, Gen.G, and Triumph — for a grand total of eight teams in the event. The American event was originally scheduled to have ten teams but has been reduced by BLAST.

Here is a complete list of the teams competing in the EU and NA Spring Showdown events:


  • Astralis
  • NiP
  • Vitality
  • fnatic
  • mousesports
  • MAD Lions
  • ENCE
  • Dignitas
  • RTP Arena Cup
  • CIS Cup

North America:

  • MIBR
  • Evil Geniuses
  • Gen.G
  • 100 Thieves
  • Cloud9
  • Triumph
  • Chaos

The EU and NA Spring Showdown events will begin on June 1 and feature a best-of-one group stage where only the last team will be eliminated, leaving the others to advance to a playoff stage.
