BLAST Forays Into FIFA
BLAST, one of the top esports event organizers in the world, has unveiled that it will be responsible for the 2021/22 ePremier League season. This marks BLAST’s first steps into FIFA esports.
BLAST boasts years of experience with hosting esports events and is one of the best organizations to take over the esports league. The organizer has set its goal to make the ePremier League Grand Final the best it can be to the athletes, esports fans, and football enthusiasts alike. BLAST will use its knowledge of what it takes to make an engaging esports competition to answer fans’ demands and deliver premium esports content.
The ePremier League is hosted in collaboration between Britain’s top football event, the English Premier League, and Electronic Arts, the company behind FIFA 22. The tournament features 20 teams that correspond to the 20 teams of the traditional Premier League. Representatives of the real-life clubs will take a part in the exciting esports event, creating a bridge between traditional sports and esports.
The league’s finals are scheduled for March 26-27. The event will have a $135,000 prize pool that will be split between the top teams of the PS5 and Xbox divisions.
A Big Change of Pace
BLAST’s foray into e-football demonstrates marks a huge change from the shooter titles the organizer usually picks. Over the years, the organizer has hosted numerous events and is popular for its high-quality Counter-Strike: Global Offensive series. It has also explored other shooter games, such as Fortnite and Apex Legends. However, FIFA is something brand new for BLAST.
Leo Matlock, the managing director of development for BLAST, shared that the organizer is thrilled to explore this new territory.
“We’re excited at the prospect of engaging with fans from all 20 [Premier League] clubs as they compete to represent their favorite team at the live Grand Finals,” he said.
It will be interesting to see how BLAST’s touch will enhance the 2021/22 ePremier League season. It seems the organizer is preparing for a great 2021 campaign. About three weeks ago, BLAST revealed its plans for the 2022 Counter-Strike season and soon after renewed its partnership with the skin trading platform CS.Money.
