BLAST Premier Spring Finals Coming

The BLAST Premier Spring Finals will begin on June 12th, and all of the action is going to wrap up on June 16th. The top teams in this sport are going to head to London to battle it out, and there are some major storylines out there surrounding these teams. 

With any major esports event, there is no shortage of storylines ahead of this one, and there are two very different stories that are out there. Here is a look at those stories and what fans should expect when the action kicks off in London. 

BLAST Finds Partner in Pot Noodle

Just days before the action was set to begin, BLAST has announced that they have partnered with Pot Noodle to add to the excitement of the event. Pot Noodle will receive special branding and advertisement rights, and they will also work with BLAST to produce unique content. 

This company was founded all the way back in 1979, and it has remained a popular instant snack brand in many parts of the world. This is the first time that Pot Noodle has partnered with an esports company, and it has been working hard to break into this industry. 

There will be some unique giveaways for fans that are in attendance in London this week, but those prizes have not yet been announced. Esports organizations and teams are always looking for new partners, and this is one that could have a big impact moving forward. 

TaZ Stepping In For Spring Finals

G2 Esports is one of the teams that is favored to win this event, but they are going to have to do it without one of their top players. Head coach, TaZ, is going to have to fill-in for m0NESY, as the star player was dealing with some Visa issues that will not allow him to be in attendance. 

Changes to the roster are nothing new for G2 Esports as they just won the IEM Dallas 2024 with some fill-in players. This will change the way that G2 Esports plays in this event, and that is always something to watch when they are getting ready for battle. 

Betting odds have flipped a bit since this announcement was made, and G2 Esports will be without one of the best CS2 players in the world. Other teams will look to challenge them right away to see if they have what it takes to win. 

Dota 2 Losing Fans?

It might not have anything to do with the BLAST Premier Spring Finals, but there is also a big event coming to The International 2024. This is the biggest event in this sport, but it might be one that doesn’t draw a ton of fans. 

Ticket packages have been released for this event, and it didn’t take long for criticism to start rolling in about the high ticket prices. This is a three-day event, and the cost is more than $230 per day to attend. 

This event is going to be held at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, and it’s always at a location that is known to host big events. There will be the best Dota 2 teams in the world ready to battle it out, but many fans are going to be unwilling to pay the high prices. 

It will be interesting to see what the attendance numbers are, as fans will still be able to watch the action on live streams as well. This is a sport that has been growing more popular over the last few years, but high ticket prices could limit the amount of spectators that are out there.
