BLAST Premier is one of the first tournament organizers to announce its Counter-Strike 2 circuit for 2024. The complete schedule has been revealed, highlighting the usual seven main events and all the basic information associated with them.

A few big changes that will be noticed in BLAST Premier's circuit next year will be a switch in location for BLAST Premier Fall Final 2024 from Royal Arena to Forum Copenhagen, and there will be a new format for the two Showdown events - Spring and Fall.


BLAST Premier 2024: Complete CS2 Roadmap

BLAST Premier is one of the top third-party tournament organizers, creating an annual competitive circuit around Counter-Strike. It does a good job of keeping pace with the ESL circuit and has quickly become a staple of the esports scene.

It has a total of 12 partner teams but does provide other non-partner teams a chance to be a part of its circuit and compete against some of the best Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) teams in the world.

Here are complete details about the BLAST Premier 2024 esports roadmap for CS2.

An interesting thing to note here is that both BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2024 and Fall Groups 2024 have been scheduled such that they would be opening the first and second half of the competitive season next year.

BLAST Premier Sping Groups 2024 will be the first top-tier tournament to take place on LAN in late January, just a few days before the IEM Katowice 2024 which is scheduled to run from 31st January to 11th February 2024.

On the other hand, BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2024 will be restarting the CS2 esports circuit after the summer player break which will take place from 17th June to 14th July.

Even the BLAST Premier World Final 2024 has been moved from its usual year-end December slot to mid-November to accommodate the Shanghai Major 2024, which will be the last CS2 tournament of the season.

In terms of changes, BLAST Premier Fall Final 2024 will not be taking place at its trademark location, Royal Arena, where this particular event has been held six times in the past. Instead, it will be replaced by Forum Copenhagen, which is a large multi-purpose indoor arena located in Frederiksberg, Denmark with a maximum capacity of 10,000 people.

Apart from this, BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2024 and BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2024 both are about to undergo a change in their format. Instead of being split into two regions, a single event will take place in Europe with a total of 16 teams in attendance, including the bottom six teams from Spring/Fall Groups, three direct invites, and seven teams from various global qualifiers.
