DreamHack has invited fnatic, SK Gaming, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and FaZe Clan to the upcoming $250,000 Masters in Stockholm, with tickets on sale to fans.
Back in November, DreamHack announced its fourth Masters event, to be held from August 29 to September 2 in the city of Stockholm, where 16 teams will compete for $250,000 in cash prizes.
Last year, the Brazilians of SK were runners-up to Virtus.pro at DH Masters Las Vegas in February, but then took a hard fall at the Malmö Masters, where they placed 5th-8th after losing to G2 in the quarter-finals. After lifting a Masters title in 2016, NiP went out 3rd-4th and 5th-8th last year, in Las Vegas and Malmö, respectively.
fnatic will be headed to Stockholm hoping to improve on last year's 9th-12th place finishes at DreamHack Masters events. However, they are not the only team with a string of lacklustre results as FaZe have yet to finish better than 9-12th at a DreamHack Masters event following three attempts.
There are now 12 spots left to fill at DreamHack Masters Stockholm. Four of those spots will remain to teams invited directly, while the remaining eight will be determined by open qualifiers, which have yet to be determined.
The first four teams for CORSAIR DreamHack Masters Stockholm are as follows:
