BLAST Rising Partners Announced – The Esports Observer

Tournament organizer BLAST Premier announced Friday three partners for its BLAST Rising Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, taking place May 3 – 23. BLAST has named cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase, CS:GO skin trading platform CS.MONEY, and Nubia Technologies-owned mobile phone brand Red Magic as partners.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

The partnerships with Coinbase and CS.MONEY are extensions of existing sponsorship relationships with the tournament organizer, while Red Magic returns after sponsoring last year’s BLAST Premier Fall Series.

BLAST Rising is a Europe-focused Counter-Strike tournament aimed at teams outside “the world’s top 20 rankings” competing for a prize pool of $30K USD. BLAST says that 24 teams from 19 countries will compete.
