BOOM! Gamers, do you wanna have a BLAST?

A leading global esports entertainment company has announced its flagship event as the BLAST Premier World Final 2023 will return to Abu Dhabi in December with tickets now on sale.

BLAST continues its partnership with ADGaming, a pioneering gaming and esports initiative under the Abu Dhabi government, to bring its prestigious USD $1 million year-ending tournament to Yas Island’s Etihad Arena on 16 and 17 December.

It is the second consecutive year that the prestigious esports event will be staged in the capital after last year’s event, which was the biggest esports event to be hosted in the UAE.

The event will see eight of the globe’s best Counter-Strike teams compete for the chance to end the year as world champions and a share of the $1million prize pool.

With the tournament being held in Abu Dhabi, it strengthens the Emirate’s position as a leading gaming hub and aligns with BLAST’s objective to reach new audiences, showcase the benefits of what esports can offer, and deliver incredible esports experiences in state-of-the-art arenas for both teams and fans.

Tickets to the BLAST Premier World Final can be bought on Ticketmaster and Etihad Arena with prices starting at just AED 160. Discounts of up to 20 per cent for those who wish to book four or more tickets and hospitality tickets are also available.
