BLAST Pro Series has unveiled their fifth team of six set to attend the next event in Los Angeles, California. The North American side of NRG will be making a short trip to attend the event, playing on what is considered home soil for the squad. They’re not the only team on home soil though as both Liquid and the Norther American & European mix of Cloud9 are set to attend.
The six team event will take place from July 12 to 13 inside of the 10,000 seat Galen Center. The tournament will have the usual $250,000 up for grabs and currently features Liquid, FaZe, Cloud9 and MIBR with NRG joining the list. One spot remains unannounced. The format this season will mean one or two of the squads set as official partners are likely to sit this one out.
The team didn’t put up the best results at DreamHack Masters Dallas where they exited 9th-12th following a 3rd-4th at cs_summit 4.
They’ll have time to build things up though as they have a full schedule leading up to the event. On their calendar are the ECS Season 7 and ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals along with ESL One Cologne and the Americas Minor closed qualifier.
This will be NRG’s first BLAST appearance.
