“Miami will be our first first ever tournament in North America, and it will probably be the biggest live esports in US of 2019. Last week we opened the ticket sales for our São Paulo tournament and within hours the arena was completely sold out. We see this tendency all over the world, and even though BLAST in Miami will be the biggest esports event ever in Florida, we expect a completely packed arena.
BLAST’s iconic stage and ability to create an electric atmosphere ensures the audience of nothing less than a fantastic display of esports entertainment.”

Playing on that stage with the massive set-up of screens, lights and sound in front of a packed arena is impossible to describe. I really hope that the crowd will show up in force, ’cause this will be something truly special. .
