Tournament and location
This year-long project of DreamHack is made possible with the help of Monster Energy and CORSAIR. Michael Van Driel, Chief Product Officer at DreamHack, released a statement regarding the new stops and why they decided to expand the tournament: “DreamHack Open entering its 8th year is an exciting step for DreamHack, few esports circuits have run that long. Visiting new locations is always our goal, and with new stops in Brazil and The Netherlands we are sure this will be a year to remember.”
Each DreamHack Open stop next year will feature 8 professional CSGO teams competing live for a portion of a $100,000 prize pool. The tournament returns to its most recent and familiar locations but features a stop in the Netherlands, Rio De Janeiro, Rotterdam, and Dallas. DreamHack Rio will be the first stop of the year, taking place from April 19th to 21st, 2019.
