The first ever event of the BLAST Pro Series is going down the upcoming weekend and it is looking to become an exciting one. 6 of the best CS:GO teams in the world have been invited to compete for the top prize of $125,000.
We will first have 5 rounds of group stage matches between the teams, where the top 2 teams will play in the Grand Final. The other teams will play in a BLAST Stand-off to determine the rankings of the rest of the teams.
You can read more about the tournament and our predictions for it in our BLAST Pro Series Preview.
For this inaugural event, Unibet has signed on to become the head sponsor of the BLAST Pro Series, and also the exclusive betting partner. The online bookmakers really seem to want to get in on the crazy growth of eSports and now they are taking center stage as the development continues.

We are excited about the BLAST Pro Series partnership because it is a new step for Kindred into the world of esports. The fresh ideas and new concepts that will be on offer at the event have been put together by RFRSH Entertainment with the players' and fans' front of mind.
