BLAST Shortlisted for Best Esports Event

15th December 2023

BLAST was shortlisted for Best Esports Event of 2023 with the Paris Major. The Paris Major was one of BLAST’s biggest undertakings and was its first Valve corporation Counter-Strike Major event.


With the release of Counter-Strike 2, the Paris Major was also the last ever CS:GO major to be hosted, adding extra pressure to give a decade-spanning game a worthy send-off.

The Accor Arena played host to 50,000 fans across 4 days of adrenaline-fuelled action. The Grand Final between Team Vitality and Gamer Legion GmbH peaked at 1.5 million viewers – the third highest in CS history. Users combined to watch 58 million hours of the Paris Major online.
