The BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022 is the first big CS:GO event of the new season and an opportunity to see some of the new rosters for the first time. Follow all the action here.


  • New CS:GO tournament season begins with the BLAST event
  • Twelve teams will compete for six spots at the Fall Final
  • Teams like G2, Complexity and OG to debut new rosters

After a month-long player break that felt like an eternity, the new CS:GO tournament season is finally about to start. Twelve teams, all partnered with BLAST, will take part in the group stage of the fall season, with six spots at the Fall Final up for grabs.

For some of the teams in attendance, there’s the sunshine optimism of a new season after roster changes. Half of the teams either have already changed at least one player this summer or are about to, so the BLAST Premier Fall Groups will be the first opportunity to see some of the new rosters in action as we get closer and closer to the IEM Rio Major.

BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022: Format & schedule

The BLAST Premier Fall Groups will run from August 19 through August 28 and will follow the same three-stage format of the Spring season.

The 12 teams have been split into three double-elimination groups, with each match being played in a best-of-one format. The teams will then advance to one of the three single-elimination gauntlets, the winners of which will advance to the Fall Final. The second and third-placed teams from each gauntlet will have another shot at qualification via the last-chance stage.
