The competitive season of tier-one CS:GO in 2023 will kick off with the $177,500 BLAST Premier Spring Groups from Jan. 19 to 29.
The tournament will feature all 12 CS:GO teams partnered with BLAST, including some of the best in the world like FaZe Clan, Heroic, G2, Liquid, and Natus Vincere. The event is essentially a competition that will see six squads advance directly to the $425,000 BLAST Premier Spring Finals, while the bottom half will have to attend the Spring Showdown alongside non-partnered teams from all over the world.
Spring Groups will be played from BLAST’s studio in Copenhagen. The 12 teams were split into three double-elimination format groups. The winner from each group will advance to the Spring Final. The remaining teams will be moved to the play-in stage, which will have three single-elimination gauntlets and the winner of each gauntlet will advance to Spring Final. All matches of Spring Groups will be best-of-threes.
