On May 11, BLAST Pro Series is coming to the capital of Spain with its revolutionizing live esports entertainment format. Six of the world’s best Counter-Strike is going to battle out live on stage in Madrid Arena for the lion share of the 250,000 dollar prize pool.

Jordi Roig, Executive Producer for BLAST Pro Series:

- Spain is a country famous for its love for sports and the way we execute esports tournaments is guaranteed to enable the crowd. The engagement of Spanish fans during live events is enchanting and for these reasons it a no-brainer that BLAST Pro Series absolutely has to establish a relationship with the beautiful and passionate country, Jordi Roig says.

On May 10 the placements matches will be played and broadcasted online and on TV. May 11 the Madrid Arena will open up for all the fans ready to for the award-winning BLAST experience.

World class entertainment, in- and outside the arena

Jordi Roig, Executive Producer for BLAST Pro Series:

- BLAST Pro Series is broadcasted on TV to 135 countries where we communicate BLAST to a mainstream audience. At the same time, more than 5 million people tune into our online stream which caters more to longtime esports fans and when the Madrid Arena opens up on May 11, that’s when we fire up the live show where we try to be as inclusive as possible so give everyone, hardcore fans and newcomers alike, an unforgettable night, Jordi Roig says and adds:

- It’s a proven concept in the three cities we visited so far where all the arenas where sold out. In Lisbon last year we were nominated for Event of the Year against some very strong competition and won. March 22-23 we’ll go to São Paulo, Brazil to yet another sold out arena and then Miami the month after. So we will have a lot more experience coming into Madrid where guests can look forward to entering an arena that has been completely transformed into a state of the art digital battleground, Jordi Roig says.

Only the best teams at BLAST

Although no teams have been announced for BLAST Pro Series Madrid, you are guaranteed world class. For our sold out show in São Paulo, all six teams handpicked by us qualified for the Major play-offs and all our teams for both São Paulo and Miami are top 10 in the world. BLAST Pro Series Madrid will be equally stacked with talent.
