Calyx announced the return of Dune Cup Fall Edition, a Middle East Qualifier for the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown from October 12-17. The company said 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.
Dune Cup Fall Edition, A BLAST Premier Qualifier will be streamed live on Twitch and YouTube from 26th to 28th August 2021.
