The tournament invites best Counter-Strike teams in the world to compete in an “explosive” format. Teams will try to get the best share of the estimated $250,000 prize pool. Blast Pro authorities expect a record-breaking event in the largest city of Europe that hosts around 15 million people, many of whom are young E-Sports fans.
