BLAST Pro Series Coming to Miami in April

The BLAST Pro Series will come to America for the first time, the tournament organizers announced Thursday. The tournament series will come to Miami on April 13.

BLAST Pro Series will be held in America for the first time at BLAST Pro Series Miami. The best six CS:GO teams will compete for their share of the $250,000 prize pool on April 13. The tournament will be held at the Watsco Center.

"BLAST Pro Series is the best of all live entertainment and sports formats in one. Miami will be our first first ever tournament in North America, and it will probably be the biggest live esports in US of 2019," BLAST Pro Series executive producer Jordi Roig said in a news release. "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 for the Saturday event."

Astralis and Natus Vincere were invited to the event and will be joined by four other invited teams.
