BLAST Premier has officially announced that its Spring Final in 2024 will take place in London, United Kingdom, from June 12 to 16.

The tournament will unfold at the OVO Arena Wembley, a prestigious 12,000-seater venue that hosted its last Counter-Strike event, which was the Champions Stage of the FACEIT Major in 2018.

The event will feature eight top-tier teams competing for a substantial $425,000 prize pool.

Fans eager to witness the action live can secure their tickets through Live Nation for the final three days of the competition, which are from Friday to Sunday.

The ticketing process will kick off with a presale exclusively for subscribers starting on Wednesday, October 25.

This will be followed by a Live Nation presale on Thursday, October 26, and the general sale opening on Friday, October 27.

In terms of team selection, the format is expected to follow the tradition, with six of the eight teams earning their spots through the partner-only BLAST Premier Spring Groups, while the remaining two will qualify through the Spring Showdown.

The BLAST Premier Spring Final 2024 is set to be a landmark event in the world of Counter-Strike, returning to London four years after the last BLAST-hosted tournament in the city.

This event is poised to be the largest Counter-Strike competition in the UK since the London Major in 2018.

The previous BLAST Premier Spring Finals were held in Washington, DC.

The event schedule will see the first two days of competition being conducted behind closed doors, while from June 14 to 16, fans will have the opportunity to enjoy the action live at the arena.

This event is part of BLAST’s ongoing efforts to bring major esports tournaments to the UK capital, which has seen an influx of significant esports events in recent years, spanning various titles such as League of Legends, Rocket League, Call of Duty, and Apex Legends.

However, the choice of the Wembley Arena venue marks a notable departure from the Copper Box Arena in Stratford, which has been the usual location for these events.
