DreamHack Open returns to Leipzig, Valencia, Montreal, Rotterdam, Sevilla, and Jönköping

New stops in Anaheim, USA, and Hyderabad, India

All stops feature eight teams competing for a $100,000 prize pool

STOCKHOLM — DreamHack, the premier gaming lifestyle festival, today announced the full 2020 schedule of its pro/amateur Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament circuit DreamHack Open. The schedule features eight stops at three different continents, the first one is to take place during DreamHack Leipzig (January 24-26) and the last at DreamHack Sevilla (December 11-13).

Besides revisiting six locations from previous years, the 2020 schedule also features two new stops in DreamHack Anaheim (February 21-23) and DreamHack Hyderabad (October 30-November 1). The eight stops all feature a $100,000 prize pool, eight competing teams decided via invites and online qualifiers, and world-class production with some of the most popular talent guiding the viewers throughout the competitions.

“We’re happy to announce another year of DreamHack Open, featuring eight stops on three continents,” said DreamHack Chief Product Officer Mike Van Driel. “DreamHack Open was launched in 2012 and has since played an important role in the development of the pro/amateur CS:GO scene, giving up-and-coming teams and players the opportunity to shine on the big stages. This ‘zero to hero’ possibility will become even stronger now as DreamHack Open is a part of the ESL Pro Tour.”
