Following the huge success and tremendous response from the region during the Spring Season, the
Calyx Dune Cup Fall Edition will take place from 26th to 28th August 2021. This is a part of BLAST
Premier’s expanded Qualifier Series that takes place across more than 60 countries and over five
continents, giving teams, be it established or underdogs, all around the world a chance to put
themselves on equal footing with Tier 1 teams.
Through a system of regional competitions accessible to hundreds of teams via open qualifiers, the
BLAST Premier Qualifying Series is set across a number of events and will directly involve 64 teams in the
finals. Winners of each of these events will earn a place in the Fall Showdown along with a $25,000
participation fee for each team to invest into growing and developing their organizations. In the last
edition alone, $175,000 was given out to winning teams from all regional qualifiers.
The winning team from each of these regional qualifying events will not only earn a spot in October’s Fall
Showdown but also a chance of claiming part of the $162,500 prize pool, with the ultimate aim of
reaching the Fall Final and World Final.
As part of the Calyx Dune Cup Fall Edition, four teams will receive direct invites and will be joined by two
winners from each of the GCC and Levant & North Africa Open Qualifiers. These eight teams will then
lock horns for the prestigious spot of representing the Middle East on a global stage against the world’s
best CS:GO teams at the Fall Showdown. Defending champions of the Dune Cup, NASR Esports will
return as an invited team for a fresh set of challenges and another shot at representing the Middle East
in the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown.
