Bombastic StarLeague 10

Welcome all the bombastic people!

You know what’s the sentence we heard the most during the last two months? “When BSL10 Starts?”, “When BSL will come back?”. Finally we can answer: BSL10 STARTS NOW - GO SIGN UP AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS.

It has been a year since we announced that BSL signed up a contract with Blizzard for BSL Season 7, 8, 9 and 10. After BSL7 we found two more fantastic sponsors - eSport.fund and liquipedia.net - which allowed us to increase the prize pool even more. When we started, it felt for us that it will take forever to organize four seasons of such a big tournament, but now we have only one season left. The grand finals, the last battle, the ultimate championship. It needs to be the best, it needs to be Bombastic. And it will be. #StayHomeAndBeBombastic

First of all, I would like to give a shoutout to our fantastic sponsors, who helped to make BSL dreams come true.

1. Blizzard Entertainment

2. eSport.fund

3. Liquipedia

That's the perfect moment for all of you to go and thank our great sponsors for BSL7, BSL8, BSL9 and BSL10 Circuit.

Through BSL7, BSL8 and BSL 9 you could qualify for BSL10, by winning the whole season or earning BSL Points.
