Event To Feature Some of World’s Best Dota 2 Players and $250,000 Prize Pool
Live from Rotterdam Ahoy During First-Ever Dreamhack Rotterdam
DreamHack, in partnership with CORSAIR, Esport-Management.com, and Monster Energy, is excited to announce the 12th season of the fan-favorite Dota 2 tournament, CORSAIR DreamLeague. The action-packed tournament will take place during the debut of DreamHack Rotterdam and feature a $250,000 prize pool. As part of DreamHack Rotterdam, CORSAIR DreamLeague Season 12 will take place at the Rotterdam Ahoy venue in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on October 18-20, 2019.
"It’s exciting to follow up last seasons grand event in Stockholm with shipping the DreamLeague experience to a new country. DreamHack Rotterdam will serve as the perfect setting for CORSAIR DreamLeague Season 12 with thousands of esports and gaming fans gathering at the Rotterdam Ahoy for the three-day festival,” said DreamHack Co-CEO Marcus Lindmark.
For the second time since its first-ever season, CORSAIR DreamLeague will travel outside of Sweden, following the Season 7 finals in Atlanta, Ga., USA. Over the years, CORSAIR DreamLeague has featured up-and-coming stars as well as some of the biggest players of the time, including Chinese team Vici Gaming — the reigning champions following their win during DreamLeague Season 12 in Stockholm, Sweden, in March 2019.
"We are very excited to host the 12th season of the Dota 2 tournament in Rotterdam Ahoy. It is the first time that such a major Dota tournament is coming to the Benelux. It fits our ambition to become the number one esports and gaming festival in our country. It will surely attract additional fans, the league is a great expansion for our event for which we earlier announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Tournament,” Jolanda Jansen, CEO Rotterdam Ahoy.
Additional information on the upcoming 12th season of CORSAIR DreamLeague, such as participating teams and tournament format, will be announced later.
