The Blast Premier Spring Final 2024 teams line-up has been officially confirmed, after two qualified from the Spring Showdown yesterday.

16 teams took part in the qualifier overall, including BIG, Liquid, Cloud9, OG, NiP, Complexity and Falcons, who had s1mple with them on a one-month loan deal.

This wasn’t enough for Falcons, however, who lost to Metizport 2-1 in the first round of 16.

SAW’s Portuguese roster defeated Liquid 2-1, Cloud9 2-0 and OG 2-0 to qualify.

And Team Spirit beat Elevate 2-0, BIG 2-0 and Metizport 2-1 to become the other team to make it through to the Spring Final.

The news comes one month after Team Spirit won IEM Katowice 2024, with their young Russian rifler Donk making a name for himself.

Yesterday’s results of course mean we have the full list of eight teams set to compete at Wembley this summer (see below).

Blast announced back in October 2023 that the Wembley Arena in London will host the Blast Premier Spring Final 2024 from June 12th to 16th.

Blast’s Andrew Haworth previously said of the Blast Premier Spring Final 2024: “The OVO Arena Wembley is a state-of-the-art facility and will provide fans with the perfect setting to witness the most talented Counter-Strike and esports players go head-to-head for a $425,000 total prize pool and chance to qualify for the highly-anticipated World Final in December 2024.”

The Wembley event isn’t the only Blast esports event in the UK this year. There’s also the Blast Rainbow Six Siege Manchester Major taking place in May.
