The Nordic Masters, which is set to be hosted by Pelaajatcom from March 17th to 19th 2023, will serve as a qualifying event for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown. During the tournament, eight Nordic teams will be competing for a chance to secure a spot in the BLAST Showdown tournament. This presents an incredible opportunity for the participants to go head-to-head with some of the top CS:GO players, and potentially win a share of the $135,500 prize money in Showdown.
Out of the eight teams participating in the Nordic Masters, three teams will be invited, while the other five teams will need to qualify for their place in the tournament. Here are the qualifiers:
First Nordic qualifier will take place on Saturday, March 4th, followed by the second qualifier on Thursday, March 9th. The winner of each qualifier will earn a spot in the Nordic Masters tournament. If you haven’t already registered your team, there is still time to do so on our Faceit page.
We are excited to announce the three invited teams to the Nordic Masters tournament, who are among the best in the region: Sprout, Copenhagen Flames, and Apeks.
Sprout captured everyone’s attention last November when they made an impressive run to the legends stage of the Rio Major. With their new IGL Aaron “AZR” Ward, they are more dangerous than ever and poised to make their mark in the Nordic Masters.
Copenhagen Flames have consistently proven to be one of the most successful organizations for developing up-and-coming players. Their past lineups have gone on to make history in some of the world’s best teams, and their current lineup is on the same track of bringing success.
Apeks is a dynamic team made up of a mix of young, up-and-coming players and seasoned veterans. Their roster includes players like Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad, who has competed at the highest levels of CS:GO – with AZR. The team has everything they need to reach the top and are eager to secure a spot in the BLAST circuit.
