If we were to list the most important cities in the world when it comes to esports events, then Jönköping would no doubt be at the top of this list. This is where DreamHack organizes its festivals twice a year, it was there that the first Major CS: GO took place. And now it’s time to write down another story page – next year Jönköping will come to the DreamHack Masters series!
Sixteen formations will traditionally take part in the Intel Grand Slam event. Some of them will visit Sweden thanks to a direct invitation from the organizers, while others will go on a journey to the north of Europe after going through regional eliminations. Importantly, as part of the ESL Pro Tour, promotion to the tournament will also be ensured by the winners of DreamHacks Open, which at the beginning of next year will take place in German Leipzig and American Anaheim.
The DreamHack Masters Jönköping knockout phase will take place in the Kinnarps Arena, which can seat about 7,000 spectators, which hosts hockey matches on a daily basis. The event prize pool will contain a quarter of a million dollars. Participants will also fight for valuable points in the ESL Pro Tour ranking, which will decide on direct invitations to ESL One Cologne 2020.
