Rfrsh Entertainment has announced that the Blast Pro Series CS:GO competition will return to Copenhagen's Royal Arena in November this year, a year after it first graced the venue, and with the announcement also comes the reveal of a new partnership between Rfrsh and TV 2 Denmark, securing national TV broadcast of all Blast Pro Series events this year.
CEO and Founder of Rfrsh Entertainment, Nikolaj Nyholm, comments: "Our goal with Blast Pro Series is to create the most important and interesting esports tournament from a live perspective, the viewer experience and for everything we create around the events and tournament. We are constantly developing the tournament and digital content around it and working with a national broadcaster and digital power house and provider like TV 2 is yet another step in reaching our ambitions to develop and present the best and most engaging esports product out there."
This TV partnership will also broadcast the Blast Pro Series event in Istanbul on June 23 and 24 as well, but in terms of the Copenhagen event, unsurprisingly Astralis is the first team revealed to be competing.
"Blast Pro Series in Copenhagen last year was one of the most insane experiences I've ever had as a player," Astralis player Peter 'dupreeh' Rothmann said. "The set-up is out of this world, the way the audience connects with everything going on, and the intensity of the tournament with 6 teams on stage at the same time - the audience almost blew the roof off of Royal Arena."
Tickets for the event go on sale at 10:00 CEST on April 30 at Ticketmaster, and presale opens at April 27 for those who sign up via Blast News on the Blast Pro Series website. What other teams do you hope will be competing?
