The BLAST Pro Series Global ‘Counterstrike Tournament’ Final held in Bahrain at Isa Sports City, culminated in one of the most engaging, explosive and entertaining e-sports tournaments in the world with a prize pool of $500,000.

Hosting a live audience of thousands in an engaging and electrifying live format as well as connecting millions watching live online and on live TV.

The BLAST Pro Series partnered with the Bahrain Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs to host the global final of the competition and insisted on working with a regional technical solutions partner that had a world-class reputation in delivering seemingly impossible projects. Experts in each field of technical delivery were required together with excellent logistics and project management knowledge and skills to deliver an end-to-end solution in a 14 day timeline from project go ahead to live event. 

BLAST Pro Series had specific requirements when it came to the technical solution of lighting, audio, video and rigging. With the tournament in Bahrain having to follow the same format as all the other tournaments around the world.

Besides the logistical process of delivering all 32 tons of specified equipment using N&M’s international network of fully stocked warehouses and shipping from Germany and Dubai to Bahrain within 7 days, whilst encountering and dealing with an unexpected National Holiday that delayed custom release, it was imperative that this project had N&M’s renowned expertise in project and contingency management by creating the ‘right’ multi-national team of experts to execute a complex and challenging delivery - working full time over an 48 hour time constraint ensuring delivery for the client.
