There's never too much of DH
Swedish organizers of the world's largest eSports festival have announced that they will organize 2 championships with $ 250 000 prize pool in 2016. The series of tournaments is named DreamHack Masters, the first event to be held in the city of Malmö, economical and cultural centre of Southern Sweden.
Malmö will turn into eSports epicenter for a couple of days
Sixteen first tier CS:GO teams will fight over a quarter of a million dollars between 12 and 17 April. There will be two stages, the first one played at DreamHack studio in Stockholm. The second one will be held at the prominent Malmö Arena with 15 500 capacity!
Tomas Lyckedal, DreamHack Business Development Director:
"We are extremely proud to introduce DreamHack Masters in Malmö, to offer both Swedish and Danish fans the first dedicated stadium experience for CS:GO. We’re looking to beat the production quality of DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, which was our most successful CS:GO event ever. The visitor experience will be spectacular and we expect millions of fans to tune in online."
In 2013 Malmö Arena hosted Eurovision
The organizers said that eight teams will get direct invites to the tournament. The other slots will be won at online qualifiers. The details of the tournament will be revealed later. As a reminder, DreamHack's planned prize pool for 2016 is $ 1 000 000, most of it is reserved for DH Masters. We hope that Natus Vincere will bring the first place and the prize money form such championship this eSports year!
