7,500 on the waiting list for BLAST Pro Series Sao Paulo.

In less than 8 hours all 6,000 tickets for BLAST Pro Series São Paulo were sold out. Monday 600 extra tickets were released and again everything was sold out in only hours.

The interest for BLAST in Brazil is overwhelming and more than 7,500 are still on the waiting list for the 2019 kick off of the global tournament series.

On April 12-13 BLAST will debut in US with a tournament in Miami's Watsco Center.

More than 6,000 will be in the arena, millions will be watching online and TV viewers in more than 130 countries will be able to follow the tournament when Ginásio do Ibirapuera arena hosts the first of 2019's BLAST Pro Series tournaments. World-class Counter-Strike teams MIBR, Astralis, Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, NiP and ENCE will compete for a total prize pool of 250,000 dollars.

BLAST Pro Series São Paulo will be the fifth BLAST event and the fifth event in a sold out arena.

Jordi Roig, Executive Producer for BLAST Pro Series:

- When we decided to play in São Paulo, we chose to go to the biggest arena in the city. We have received an overwhelming welcome in Brazil and Sao Paulo and to sell out in 8 hours and to have so many on the waiting list is humbling. We truly wish, we could accommodate all the Brazilian fans, and we have released as many tickets as physically possible, Jordi Roig says and adds:

- We have BLAST Pro Series Miami coming up on April 12-13, so the chance to see a BLAST event with an equally stacked line-up of world-class Counter-Strike is not far away. In Miami you have the opportunity to experience first hand why BLAST Pro Series is different from anything you have experienced live before.

BLAST Pro Series São Paulo marks the beginning of the most ambitious year for the global tournament series yet and within the next month, fans and curious newcomers alike will experience the award-winning esports tournament in São Paulo and Miami. 

No later than May 11, BLAST Pro Series is coming to the cultural metropolitan Madrid, the heart and capital of Spain and several more international cities and venues will be added.

BLAST Pro Series Lisbon was awarded "Event of the Year" in Portugal and fans won't have to travel far to experience the ecstatic atmosphere again when BLAST Pro Series comes to Madrid, Spain.

Jordi Roig, Executive Producer for BLAST Pro Series:

- We have three tournaments coming up but that's far from all. BLAST Pro Series will run consistently for the rest of the year, and years to come, with a long list of tournaments that will be announced as we go. What better way to start such an exciting year than to kick it off with the amazing fans of São Paulo and Miami, and welcome them to the BLAST family.

Tickets are still available for BLAST Pro Series Miami. Read more about it on BLAST Pro Series' website where you can also sign up to get exclusive access to the BLAST Pro Series Madrid pre-sale page when it goes live.
