BLAST Premier’s Spring Season Kicks Off With Group A
The Blast Premier Series is about to begin. 12 teams will descend on the 3 Mills Studio in London, England for the Regular Spring Season – January 31st to February 16th. Group A will kick off the regular season with a strong group. $300,000 USD is on the line, with a $100,000 share for each group. Teams attending will aim for the attractive Spring 2020 Finals, the first major LAN event of the Blast Global Series.
Like all Regular Season brackets, three groups will use a double–elimination format to determine who advances from the group. The two advancing teams will then play in the Blast Premier Spring Finals in June.
The losing teams will then play in the Blast Premier Spring Showdown. The two winners of the Spring Showdown will then join the 6 successful teams from the group stages. They will then play for the season finals with hopes to qualify for the Global Final at the end of 2020.
The Blast Premier Series is the first big event for all teams in Group A. Therefore, this tournament will mean a lot for every team looking to kick start their year.
FaZe Clan is a team that made a resurgence in late 2019. Their ending to 2019 put a bit more faith in the roster, as the joining Marcelo “coldzera” David took a while to establish himself in the team. However, their got them their first LAN win as a new roster. While that momentum was great, that was their only real victory. At the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals (the last big event of 2019 with many top teams attending) they finished in the 9th-12th position. FaZe Clan need to show up at this event if they want to send a message that their resurgence wasn’t a one–hit–wonder.
