CS:GO will be one of the three main titles at DreamHack Austin, according to the organisation.

DreamHack Austin was first announced about two months back, and marked an important milestone for the Swedish company DreamHack as it would be its first event hosted outside of Europe.

The event will run from May 6-8 in 2016 and take place inside of the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, a city known both as Texas' state capital and a bustling tech and business hub in the United States.


 DreamHack Austin will take place at the Austin Convention Center

DreamHack have now announced the first three main titles for the event in Austin, which include CS:GO, Super Smash Brothers Melee, and Street Fighter V, the latter two reflective of the recent resurgence of the competitive fighting games scene in esports.

While information is still preliminary, DreamHack have promised that both "international teams" and "up-and-coming" teams (perhaps meaning local) will be present for the CS:GO tournament in Austin.

More information for the event can be found at DH Austin's hub page here. In addition, tickets will be going on sale soon on September 15th, with a ticket page released by DreamHack that features various pricing options available here.

why dont they host a tournament in russia? i mean seriously.. Moscow aint that bad
2015-09-11 18:03
That's it MOSCOW. Everyone thinks Russia has no other cities. Why don't they make DreamHack Washington, or Dreamhack Paris?
2015-09-11 18:04
dreamhack washington would be dope because I could take a bus from home to cover the event :D
2015-09-11 18:05
fake flagger
2015-09-11 20:03
Because in other cities you gonna get robed, raped and left alone :D Or Milicia will arrest you for nothing. Bye bye russia esport
2015-09-11 18:07
There's no milicia anymore. It's police since hmm 2011?
2015-09-11 18:08
You clearly have never been to Russia. There's way more people being raped and robbed in Swedistan than in Russia
2015-09-11 18:18
why dont you host a tournament in russia?
2015-09-11 18:05
everyone hates Russia and they ask: why not? I am Russian by myself. Hiding my nationality in MM.
2015-09-11 18:06
me?
2015-09-11 18:07
its not easy for a swedish company to come to russia and do business you know, so russia themself have to take initiative and host tournaments then maybe they can co-op with dreamhack

HLTV Confirmed?

Why not put it on the East coast? Cities such as NYC make great places for tournaments.

Dallas is a very popular city, but Austin is the capital. Capitals of states can be confusing.
