DreamHack Open Leipzig invites unveiled
DreamHack has announced all four invited teams for their upcoming Open circuit event held in Leipzig.
DreamHack Open Sevilla champions North, who earlier on Tuesday announced the renewal of Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye's contract, Virtus.pro, Renegades and BIG have all received direct invites to participate at the German event, which will be held from January 24-26.
The four sides join Sprout on the list of participants for the event, with the German team having secured a spot after winning the ESL Meisterschaft Winter Finals. This leaves just three vacant slots, to be filled via the European and North American regional qualifiers, scheduled for January 12.
The $100,000 event will be held at the Leipziger Messe and will feature the traditional DreamHack Open format, with the eight teams split into two double-elimination groups, which will be followed by a single-elimination bracket.
