The Blast Pro Series is headed to the USA

It'll have the same format.

The Blast Pro Series is hitting Copenhagen's Royal Arena in November (with teams like Ninjas in Pyjamas and FaZe Clan competing), and now we know that the Pro Series will also be going to the US, with invited teams being mostly North and South American.

Rfrsh ​CEO​ ​Nikolaj Nyholm​ ​had this to say about the news: "​Blast​ ​Pro​ ​Series​ ​has​ ​been​ ​the​ ​centre​ ​of​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​attention​ ​from​ ​many​ ​sides,​ ​and​ ​in​ ​connection​ ​with​ ​the​ ​launch​ ​of the​ ​format​ ​in​ ​Copenhagen,​ ​we​ ​will​ ​host​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​representatives​ ​from​ ​more​ ​than​ ​20​ ​international​ ​cities,​ ​who​ ​are all​ ​interested​ ​in​ ​experiencing​ ​the​ ​latest​ ​live​ ​format​ ​within​ ​esports.​ ​Already​ ​now,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​in​ ​dialogue​ ​with​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of cities​ ​including​ ​Miami,​ ​New​ ​York,​ ​Austin​ ​and​ ​others,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​are​ ​looking​ ​to​ ​present​ ​BLAST​ ​Pro​ ​Series​ ​in​ ​the​ ​US​ ​in​ ​the early​ ​months​ ​of​ ​2018."

The format will be the same as that in Copenhagen, giving fans a better experience in seeing the group stage matches, which will be played in the main arena. This is described by Nyholm as an "explosive and compact event" as a result, with a lot of matches going on at one time.

The aim is to present three to four additional events for next year, and the move to America is a chance to showcase great NA and South American talent, while Copenhagen is more for EU teams. Who should be included in the tournament?
