DreamHack has announced dates of all of its stops in 2019, seven of which will feature Open tournaments in CS:GO.
The amount of DreamHack Open tournaments in CS:GO will not change for 2019, as the Swedish tournament organizer will once again host seven stops next year, and the same goes the prizemoney allocated to each event, as that will remain set on $100,000.
DreamHack has added new locations to the circuit, two of which will feature a CS:GO tournament, including their first South American event, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (April 19-21), as well as a stop in Rotterdam, Netherlands (October 18-20).
Compared to 2018's events, the Austin stop has been moved to Dallas, where DreamHack will host their first 2019 Masters tournament on the brink of May and June, and there will be no CS:GO in Valencia, Spain.
Each tournament of the Open circuit will feature eight teams, which will be determined via a combination of invites and qualifiers. In previous years, each stop featured six directly invited teams and one coming from each of Europe and North America.
The list of CS:GO DreamHack Open stops in 2019 looks as follows:
DreamHack Rio (April 19-21)
DreamHack Tours (May 17-19)
DreamHack Summer (June 15-17)
DreamHack Montreal (September 6-8)
DreamHack Rotterdam (October 18-20)
DreamHack Atlanta (November 15-17)
DreamHack Winter (November 29-December 1)
