The winner gets $35,000 in prize money, while the 2nd and 3rd-place winners get $20,000 and $10,000, respectively.
The 16 CS:GO teams in attendance are qualified and invited teams. They are set to compete against each other in their respective regions on stage 2 of the tournament. All stage 2 games will be broadcasted on DreamHack’s Twitch channel.

The two joined the invited teams from ESL National Championships Italy, ESL National Championships France, and DreamHack Spain Iberian Qualifier. The list of invited teams is headlined by BIG, who holds the number 7 position in the world rankings.
