BLAST Pro Becomes an ESIC Member

Blast Pro Series, specialising in high quality, high impact counter-strike events across the world will join a prestigious list of the world’s largest tournament operators by becoming an ESIC member.

Blast has integrated ESIC’s Integrity Programme into its terms and conditions of participation for all players at all their events and has further elected to implement ESIC anti-doping testing at its major events.

Blast’s membership with the Esports Integrity Commission is a testament to the tournament operator’s commitment to sporting integrity, good governance and the adoption of best practice standards in the execution of international events.

Ian Smith, Commissioner of the Esports Integrity Commission said:

“We have been working with Blast for nearly a year to ensure competitive integrity and a clear regulatory framework for their innovative CS:GO events and I am very pleased to formally welcome them into ESIC membership. From day one they were committed to the highest standards of regulation and the adoption of our Anti-Corruption Code from the very first tournament was an honour for us and a signal of their intent.”

Jordi Roig, VP Development & Executive Relations said:

“We are happy to be a part of ESIC’s Integrity Programme and look forward to continue working with ESIC and other entities in the field developing a more stable and structured global Counter-Strike scene.

BLAST is all about creating the most, entertaining, competitive and fair environment for all parties involved and being a member of ESIC supports this mission. We like to see BLAST tournaments as cut-throat competition and all teams involved in BLAST therefore need to be able to compete on the same, fair terms in their attempt to win the trophies. Meaning equal rules and sanctions need to apply. “
