BLAST has partnered with AD Gaming – a pioneering gaming and esports initiative - to host the BLAST Premier World Final which will see the best Counter-Strike teams battle for glory in their bid of becoming world champions as well as claim a slice of the $1 million prize pool.

FaZe Clan, who triumphed in the ESL Pro League Season 15 and PGL Antwerp Major, and NAVI, winners of the Spring Final in Lisbon, are two of the sides to have booked their ticket to the UAE capital. The six remaining teams will be confirmed by late November as the BLAST Premier enters its final stages of the season.
Charlotte Kenny, Managing Director of BLAST Premier, said: “The World Final 2022 provides the ultimate fan experience in esports. We believe in making our award winning events accessible and are pleased to be releasing our exclusively priced early bird and student tickets today. There is no doubt of the growing gaming community within the Middle East. We hope to welcome as many people as possible from this passionate community, and inspire some new members/fans to come along and witness first-hand the electrifying, adrenaline-pumped events BLAST Premier is known for.
