The VENN Invitational is a direct qualifier for the BLAST Premier Spring Showdown and the winner of this weekend's event will receive a $25,000 participation fee and a free bootcamp in Europe as they make the trip for the BLAST event.

It's worth noting that Bad News Bears will not be in attendance. Michael "Swisher" Schmid told Dust2.us that his side were invited and initially accepted the invitation, but then realized that the bootcamp being offered to the winner would cause them problems during ESEA Premier Season 36 playoffs which prompted them to withdraw from the event instead.

The groups for the VENN Invitational are:

Group A Group B
 nam Extra Salt  br paiN
 us High Coast  us Triumph
 nam ex-Rebirth  nam RBG
 us Levitate  us Recon 5

Group A will play a double-elimination group bracket to completion tomorrow, while Group B will do the same on Saturday. All group-stage matches will be in a best-of-one format, while Sunday's playoff matches will all utilize a best-of-three format.

The initial matchups for the first round are:

nam Extra Salt vs. us Levitate
us High Coast vs. us ex-Rebirth
br paiN vs. us Recon 5
us Triumph vs. nam RBG

The first match begins at 3PM EST tomorrow.
