Twelve of the best CS:GO orgs in the world will battle it out starting September 16 to decide who goes straight to the Fall Final, and who goes to the Fall Showdown. Here’s everything you need to know about Blast Premier Fall Groups.


  • NAVI lock up first Group C win 2-1 against OG.
  • Vitality takes top spot in Group A, Astralis finishes second.
  • Top 2 teams in each group advance to Fall Finals.

BLAST Fall Groups could very well be one of the last CSGO events held exclusively online, as the Fall Finals are expected to take place at LAN in Copenhagen.

IEM Grand Slam winners NAVI will be looking to continue their history-making run at BLAST, but there are plenty of challengers waiting in the wings.

Astralis, Vitality, G2, and FaZe are just some of the teams looking to take s1mple and co. down a notch, and the Group bracket will be a great proving ground to see if any of them can get it done.
