It’s been over a year since we’ve seen a real, live CS:GO tournament. Now, the situation is about to come to an end, and BLAST Premier Fall was the first Major LAN Event since February last year.
The famous CS:GO event organizer, BLAST Premier, announced that the first LAN event since February 2020 would take place this autumn at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena, with 12,000 available seats.
The upcoming iteration will feature the worlds’ best teams pursuing a $425,000 prize pool and a spot in the World Finals later this year. The entire event will last for five days, where the first two will be private, and the last three days will welcome the full capacity of the arena.
Back to where it all began.
Back to crowds, to roars, to thunder.
We're coming back to the Royal Arena!
Back to Copenhagen, #BackToLAN.
Shall we save you a seat? 💥

The Copenhagen Royal Arena as the known CS:GO ground
This isn’t the first CS:GO event to take place in The Copenhagen Royal Arena. In the past, we’ve seen numerous editions of BLAST Premier events here, including BLAST Pro Series from 2019, 2018 and 2017.
The event is scheduled just after the PGL Stockholm Major, which is excellent news for CS:GO fans from Nordic countries and the surrounding area, as they will witness a severe CS:GO competitive play this fall.
According to Andrew Haworth’s words, this will be an event that the entire industry has been waiting for in the past 20 months.
“We’ve had to adapt over the last year and tried to bring that intimate arena feel to our broadcasts and productions despite the online-only format — we’ve enjoyed the challenge of pivoting, and feel this Royal Arena Fall Final will only benefit from the flexibility and technology innovation we’ve introduced during this time. We can’t wait to deliver one of the most memorable Counter-Strike events in recent years. We will be following government guidelines closely on event and travel restrictions, where we have a number of contingencies in place to ensure the event is safe for the players through to the fans,” BLAST Premier’s commissioner added during his interview with the official media.
Who are we going to see at the BLAST Premier Fall Final?
Although it’s too early to name the teams that will meet during the BLAST Premier Fall Final, we now know that those will be the best six rosters from the Fall group stage.
In addition to those six, there will be the top two teams from the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown as well. Those two events will occur in September and October and will introduce the upcoming World Finals with the stunning $1 million prize pool.
If you’re willing to see the live clash, you’ll be able to buy the presale tickets from the 16th of June or public sale tickets from the 18th of June. For more information, make sure to visit BLAST Premier’s ticket page.
