BLAST Premier is the world’s leading Counter-Strike tournament series, hosting the best players and teams of the regions across the globe and crowning the world champions of CS:GO.
This year, Blast Premier is organising the qualifiers to include best teams from all countries. Up to 32 of the world’s best teams take part in the seven BLAST Premier events across the year with a combined prize pool of $2,475,000 on the line.
The Blast Premier team has expanded its global broadcast reach after agreeing a media rights partnership with DAZN Group, the leading global sports entertainment company, for 2022.
The partnership will amplify BLAST Premier, meaning the global Counter-Strike tournament. The series will be available across over 100 of DAZN’s territories, live and on-demand, including United Kingdom, Japan and USA.
Last year DAZN broadcast over 27,000 sporting events across 956 million hours of streamed content to more than 200 countries and territories worldwide and it is the first fully integrated global sports entertainment platform.
As part of the deal, DAZN will broadcast BLAST Premier’s remaining five events of the year including the Spring, Fall and World Finals that are all set to be hosted in major arenas in key locations around the world.
DAZN will broadcast next week’s Spring Final (15-19 June), which will be hosted in Lisbon’s Altice Arena – the biggest indoor arena in Portugal and one of the biggest in Europe.
BLAST now broadcast in 154 territories and in 25 languages. Their partnership with DAZN in over 100 markets is testament to the current global demand for BLAST Premier with the high production quality.
DAZN is a global over-the-top sports subscription video streaming service. The service carries live and on-demand streaming of events from various properties as well as original programming. DAZN launched in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Japan in August 2016, and in Canada the following year.
It launched in the United States and Italy in 2018, and in Spain and Brazil in 2019. In December 2020, it expanded to become available in more than 200 countries and territories.
