Tournament organizer BLAST Pro Series announced Finnish team ENCE as the next invite for the upcoming Madrid event, which takes place May 10-11.


ENCE, the cinderella team that came up just short against Astralis at the IEM Katowice Major back in March, will compete in its second BLAST Pro Series Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event in Madrid.


The Finnish team finished third at the Sao Paulo event last month, nearly missing out on a rematch against Astralis in the final.


ENCE's roster is as follows:


  • Aleski "Allu" Jalli
  • Alekski "Aleksib" Virolainen
  • Jerej "sergej" Salo
  • Jani "Aerial" Jussila
  • Sami "xseveN" Laasanen
  • Slaava "Twista" Rasanen (coach)


ENCE joins Astralis, Cloud9, BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen champion Natus Vincere and Ninjas in Pyjamas. One final team will qualify for the event through an Iberian Play-In. Movistar Riders and Giants Gaming will face off in a best-of-three with a spot at the event on the line.
