SVT expand their broadcast coverage of DreamHack Open 2015

DreamHack and SVT are happy to prolong cooperation regarding Swedish broadcasting of DreamHack Open, that consist of 7 events in 2015 and 10 tournaments in both StarCraft II and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
- We’re very happy to be offering more eSports content to our viewers during the upcoming year, said Ola Gerhardsson, project leader at SVT Esport. We’ll continue to broadcast StarCraft II, but also add Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to our broadcasts.

In the Swedish pressrelease, SVT explain their excitement to broadcast Counter-Strike: Global Offensive as Sweden currently have two of the best teams in the World (Fnatic and NiP) and SVT will therefore broadcast all DreamHack’s stops in Sweden, Spain, Romania, United Kingdom and France.

Sveriges Television have been leading the race and was early out with their first eSports broadcasts, and now we see a lot of TV-channels and media houses around Europe following SVT’s example, said Tomas Lyckedal at DreamHack.
