The organizers of the upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event BLAST Pro Series: Lisbon 2018 have revealed that Natus Vincere is the last team to attend their $250,000 tournament this December.
Earlier the tournament’s host RFRSH Entertainment announced five participants of the event, among which were Astralis, Cloud9, FaZe Clan, MIBR and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
The event will be held on December 14th – 15th at Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal. The competition will follow the same format as all other BLAST Pro Series events: it will start with a single-round robin format group with best-of-one matches, and then top two teams will advance to the grand finals, which will be played as a best-of-three series. The prize pool is set at $250,000, so the winner of the event will get $125,000 in prize money.
The previous BLAST Pro Series event was held in Copenhagen on November 2nd – 3rd. In the grand finals Na`Vi.GG.BET defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas.
Earlier RFRSH Entertainment announced that they will held three events in 2019: in São Paulo, Brazil (March), in Miami, United States (April), and in Madrid, Spain (May).
