DreamHack just delivered an early Christmas present to the city of Stockholm.
Sweden is at the forefront of both sports and business in the field of eSports. Nevertheless, the country’s capital has wonderfully been far from spoiled by big events. That’s why there are many who received what they longed for when DreamHack revealed the exciting news that next year’s edition of the huge Counter-Strike Tournament will be held in Stockholm at Globen Arena.
According to DreamHack Masters boss, Marc Winter, they have been striving to bring a bigger event to Stockholm for a long time. The problem has been to find an arena.
The first DreamHack Masters was played in Malmö in 2016 and was followed up with another edition earlier this year. The event had received a great amount of attention from the audience as the Swedish Ninjas in Pyjamas took home a long-awaited victory last year. However, they were unable to defend the title this year.
The absence of major competitions in the Stockholm area will surely attract the audience. This objective could be achieved at Stockholm Masters 2018 which will take place at Globen Arena.
Globen Arena in Stockholm is the place where we will see sixteen of the world’s best teams fight for first place and a winning pot of over $2 million. The event will last for five days and starts with group play on 29-31 of August, followed by a round of playoffs, with a grand finale from 1 to 2 September.
The group stage will consist of 4 groups with 4 teams each. It will be double elimination using format Bo1 and Bo3. After the dust settles, the top two from each group will move on to the playoffs. The playoffs will be played in Single-Elimination Bracket format with Bo3 matches. The event, organized by DreamHack Masters and Intel Grand Slam, will be sponsored by ASUS, Monster Energy, HyperX, and SLIVER.tv.
In 2016, DreamHack’s event had a total of 233,000 visitors and more than 135 million views online. The tickets for next year’s Master’s tournament will be available on February 28th, 2018.
DreamHack Masters Malmö 2016 was won by Ninjas in Pyjamas. After that DreamHack Masters Las Vegas 2017 was won by Virtus.Pro. The last championship, DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017, was claimed by the players of G2 eSports, who defeated North in the grand finale. The event took place from August 30 to September 9 in Malmö Arena. Can the French formation defend the title? Or can Ninjas in Pyjamas can replicate their title victory in the recent Intel Extreme Masters Season XII Oakland? Everything will be answered in the coming 2018 DreamHack Masters.
