CS: GO has always had impressive attendance numbers for big events with flagship teams, and the BLAST Premier Global Final 2020 is a prime example of how those numbers have continued to rise - even when everything is online..
For several hours yesterday, the final day of the BLAST Premier Global Final broke the viewing record for a CS: GO online event on several occasions.
This record was originally set by the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe when Natus Vincere faced Astralis in the grand finals against 568,406 spectators online. This number was beaten four times during the BLAST yesterday, with Na'Vi connecting all of those numbers..
The current record is set for Na'Vi's match against Team Vitality in the lower bracket finals, which saw a peak at 687,691 spectators, according to Esports Charts. The grand finals were not far behind either, when Na'Vi and Astralis met again, with 645,853 spectators.
The other two records were the result of Na'Vi playing against Team Liquid, with a peak of 569,159 viewers for their match on day two, and 592,089 viewers watched their clash in a playoff game on day five..
These records are for online events only and come close to touching the 2018 ELEAGUE Boston Major Finals, which peaked at 1,329,096 viewers when Cloud9 and FaZe Clan faced off in the final.
