Elisa Invitational 2 Set As BLAST Premier Qualifier

Elisa, one of the oldest and biggest telecommunications companies in Finland, hosts another online CS:GO event this year, adding to the abundant library of CS:GO Bitcoin betting odds available now. Elisa Invitational returns in October as a BLAST Premier qualifier.

BLAST CEO Robbie Douek announced the organizer’s partnership with Elisa Esports this week. In a press release, Douek revealed that BLAST had recognized the success and efforts of Elisa Invitational’s inaugural season in promoting the Finnish and Nordic CS:GO scene.

“The Elisa Invitational proved to be a big hit back in May and helped shine a spotlight on the thriving Finnish and Nordic Counter-Strike scene…We’re delighted to team up with Elisa Esports again where we look forward to watching some of the best talents in the region fight it out for a place in our BLAST Premier Fall Showdown,” Douek said.

The second Elisa Invitational features eight CS:GO teams vying for a spot at the BLAST Premier Fall Europe Showdown on October 26 to 28. The upcoming event is one of Elisa Esports’ major collaborations with giant esports organizers this year. Elisa Esports currently produces broadcasts, online tournaments, and non-competitive esports events for CS:GO, PUBG, and Rocket League.

All Elisa Esports’ events, including the Elisa Invitational: A BLAST Premier Qualifier, are available for streaming on Elisa’s Twitch channels and Elisa Viihde Sport’s channels.

Competing Teams

Eight Finnish and Nordic teams compete in the qualifier. The first five teams have already been confirmed through direct invites. They were the dominating and returning teams from the first Elisa Invitational qualifier in May.

The two out of three remaining spots are handed out to the winners of other minor qualifiers. One of the three remaining spots moves on to the champion of the Elisa Finnish Championship, which culminates on September 27. The second spot is reserved for the winner of the Dust2.dk League Cup, which also concludes on September 27. The organizer announces the last team for the third spot days before the starting date of the qualifier.
