Official tournaments & new eSports area

Today we announce the first official eSports tournaments at DreamHack Summer 2013. The World’s largest digital festival is back in Jönköping, Sweden 15-18 June to give you some of the very the best tournaments in the world.

We have already announced our International championship DreamHack Open 2013 in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm that will have its’ second tour stop of five at DHS13. We also have presented the Swedish Championship, ESPORTSM featuring 4 games that will have the Grand Finals of the 2012/2013 Season at DreamHack Summer 2013. Today we are happy to announce five additional official DreamHack tournaments for DreamHack Summer 2013, including Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth and Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition. Detailed information about registration and tournament format will be released in the upcoming weeks.

New eSports area in Hall B

This Summer the eSports area will be better than ever! In the newly built expansion of Hall B, DreamHack will build a new and improved eSports area covering 4000 square meters, including all tournament areas, stages and stream locations.
- This will give all visitors a better experience on-site since you will find all eSports action at one single place. All eSports fans can stay there and both enjoy live matches in the tournament areas and also see amazing production on two different stages. The only exception will be DreamArena Extreme that will stay at its classic location, said Tomas Hermansson, Head of eSports at DreamHack

The area includes two giant audience stands, featuring 850 seats each. In front of these giant stands we’ll have two stages, which will have a seating capacity of 1,000-1,200 people each. Adding this to the already existing and classic eSports arena DreamArena Extreme with a 1,100 seating capacity, this gives DreamHack Summer a total seating capacity of around 3,500 – every event day.
- This is definitely the biggest change in the lay-out of our eSports Areas since DreamHack started to produce their own professional eSports tournaments, said Hermansson.

More official eSports titles/tournaments and partner tournaments will be presented shortly, stay tuned!
