CORSAIR DreamHack Masters Malmö has ended, following a thrilling Grand Final between Sweden’s Fnatic and Team Vitality from France, where the Swedes came up on top, claiming the championship. This was Fnatic’s first CORSAIR DreamHack Masters title and the team's first top-tier championship victory since March 2018. As champions, Fnatic leaves Malmö with the $100,000 first prize, the CORSAIR DreamHack Masters trophy and the championship rings, which was first awarded to Team Liquid as they won CORSAIR DreamHack Masters Dallas.

Fnatic shared groups with both their Grand Final opponents and the Danish powerhouse Astralis, finishing in third place with had them playing in the quarterfinals of the tournament against fellow Swedes Ninjas in Pyjamas. After beating Ninjas in Pyjamas, 2-1, Fnatic had to go up against Astralis in classic Sweden versus Denmark battle – a battle that they won following two straight map wins. That meant that they had secured a grand final spot in their first tournament following recent roster changes.

Fnatic consists of the following; Freddy “KRIMZ” Johansson, Jesper “JW” Wecksell, Ludvig “Brollan” Brolin, Robin “flusha” Rönnquist, Maikil “Golden” Selim, and Andreas Samuelsson (coach).

Following their Malmö championship, Fnatic has now tied with Team Liquid and Evil Genuises in the race for the Intel Grand Slam Season 3 title and it’s $1,000,000 cash prize. The Swedish team has also been awarded a spot in the ESL Pro Tour Masters Championship at IEM Katowice in late February, 2020.
