Dreamhack has announced their circuit for 2017 including dates and locations for their next nine events.
Each tournament will feature a $100,000 prize pool focusing on grass roots Counter Strike having two teams who came through an open qualifier play against six invited teams.
Marc “Nix0n” Winther, Dreamhack Open project manager, had this to say: “With the constant growth and being the most sought for esports title at our festival events, it is natural for us to have DreamHack Open with CS:GO as a household part of all festival events in 2017.
“It is important to us, that DreamHack Open stays open, allowing for up and coming teams to have a chance to qualify and a playground to evolve. At the same time we will continue to invite teams directly based on merits.”
