DreamHack announced two Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournaments under the name of DreamHack Masters with a prize pool of $250,000.
In the midst of an already busy DreamHack schedule, the first event will be held in Malmo Arena from the 16th of April which can seat up to 15,500 people.
It features 16 of the world’s top teams, in which eight are invited and another eight will enter via online qualifiers.
The teams will play out the group stages of the event at DreamHack’s studio in Stockholm before advancing into the playoffs.
The event will join to ranks of DreamHack’s five other Open events throughout 2015, and would boost the total prize pool for DreamHack CS:GO events up to 1 million dollars.
“We are extremely proud to introduce DreamHack Masters in Malmö, to offer both Swedish and Danish fans the first dedicated stadium experience for CS:GO,” said Tomas Lyckedal, Business Development Director at DreamHack.
“We’re looking to beat the production quality of DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca, which was our most successful CS:GO event ever.”
Over 25m people live stream the DreamHack Open final event of last year in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
