The group stage will take place on Saturday, with top two ranked teams from each group advancing to the playoffs, which will take place on Sunday. The schedule for the tournament is listed below.

Saturday, June 16

Group A
10:00 Round one
11:00 Round two
12:00 Round three
Group B
13:30 Round one

17:45 A1 vs. B2
17:45 B1 vs. A2
20:00 Third place decider
20:00 First map of grand final
21:30 Rest of grand final

The times for the third place decider and the first map of the grand final are estimated, as there is no fixed time, but will start shortly after the semi-finals conclude.

Just as the grand final in the DreamHack Summer tournament, the match will begin with first map in the regular tournament area and continue with second and potentially third map in DreamArena Extreme.

The Swedish Championship, which last year as labled as IOL FINAL4, was won by SK Gaming with a 2-0 victory against fnatic in the final.

The eight teams will be competing for a 100,000 SEK prize purse, with the follow distribution:

1. 70,000 SEK ($9,865)
2. 20,000 SEK ($2,818)
3. 10,000 SEK ($1,409)

You will be able to follow all of the action from the Swedish Championship, as well all other Counter-Strike 1.6 related tournaments right here on HLTV.org.

2012-06-14 00:02

2012-06-14 00:30

2012-06-14 01:12
Yup as always since f0rest & GeT_RiGhT left fnatic. SK have won 10 times and 1 draw out of 11 matches.
2012-06-14 16:27

2012-06-14 08:21

Swedish Championship pays more for the winner than the winner of the Dreamhack Tournament. Fall of CS :(
2012-06-14 07:58
more participants = more places are paid ... i think this system is used everywhere so dunno why kids are crying here ( im counting teams in BYOC qual as well )
2012-06-14 10:41
You actually just said that there are more teams in swedish championship than in dreamhack+byoc?
2012-06-14 13:08
They prioritize Swedish Championship in Dreamhack Summer, that is also why there are so few teams in this DreamHack tournament.
2012-06-15 00:06
Looking forward to see some good performance by a2g, but i think that SK will win this.
2012-06-14 00:06

where is manne? :(
2012-06-14 03:52
he'll only join manneline events, not LANs.
2012-06-14 04:45
maybe he can't attend because of the same reason as karrigan and trace. You don't know why so you should stop talking crap. Manne is good LAN player. Because he don't want to attend or have other things to do doesn't make him onliner.
