BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022: Scores, schedule, bracket

The 12 CS:GO teams that are partnered with tournament organizer BLAST will soon travel to Copenhagen, Denmark to play in the $177,498 BLAST Premier Fall Groups from Aug. 19 to 28.

The six best teams at this CS:GO tournament will book their spot in the BLAST Premier Fall Finals in November at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, while the bottom six will have to attend the Showdown in October and play against 10 other teams for the only two spots left in the Finals.

BLAST Premier Fall Groups’ team list includes some of the best CS:GO teams in the world, such as the PGL Antwerp Major champions FaZe Clan, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and G2. The 12 squads have been split into three groups of four each for the start of the tournament, but the competition will also feature a knockout stage that uses a gauntlet-like format that will be seeded in accordance with the results of each group.

Here’s everything you need to know about BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022.
