Astralis to Attend BLAST Pro Series São Paulo
Astralis will attend BLAST Pro Series São Paulo in March, according to an announcement Wednesday by organizer RFRSH Entertainment.
The announcement is hardly a surprise, as Astralis is owned by RFRSH. Astralis has attended every previous BLAST Pro Series Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, earning second place at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2017, first place at Istanbul, third place at Copenhagen in 2018, and first place at Lisbon.
The team finished the 2018 competitive CS:GO season continuing its winning ways. It picked up trophies DreamHack Marseille, the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals, IEM Chicago and the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals to earn the first ever Intel Grand Slam.
Astralis has continued to look strong in 2019, falling just short of another first place victory at iBUYPOWER Masters 4.
Astralis is the second team confirmed to appear at BLAST Pro Series, preceded Dec. 15 by Brazilian powerhouse MIBR.
