“It is important to host level one tournaments. There are many people in the region who have not been or have not had the opportunity to attend a level one esports tournament and the energy and atmosphere in the Arena is an experience that everyone player should have. “We are excited at ADGaming to bring it to fans through the Blast Premier World Finals,” said James Hartt, director of gaming and digital development at AD Gaming, during a press session.

The World Final returns to Abu Dhabi for the second time following the success of 2022 and will feature another strong line-up of teams from around the world. Europe’s G2 will participate in the event as the defending champions, but will face stiff competition from Faze Clan (USA), Cloud9 (USA), Ence (Finland), Navi (Ukraine) and Team Vitality ( France) during the competition.

“It is a special tournament for us, since we won it last year and all the preparations have been good so that we can do well. It is difficult to have expectations and we will try to make a good effort in all the games we play.” “Said Hooxie, captain of G2.

At last year’s finals, more than 6,000 people enjoyed the exciting action between the eight best Counter-Strike teams in the world.

Andrew Haworth, program director for Blast Premier World Final, noted that the audience at the Arena can expect more excitement this time around.

“We can’t wait for the tournament to begin at the Etihad Arena.”

Haworth noted that there will be a wide range of gaming activities and pop-up tournaments for fans to experience. “We have a wide range of play activities in our Blast Zone that adults and children of all ages can enjoy.”

At the Arena, there will be activities in the mobile gaming area, arcade games, meet and greet opportunities with esports teams, racing simulators and more fun for all age groups.
