DreamHack has announced that Malmö will be the location for their second CS: GO Masters event of 2019, hosting 16 teams that will compete for $250,000 in prize money.
The competition announced yesterday that October 2019 will mark the third time DreamHack Masters is held at the Swedish city, which also hosted the inaugural tournament in 2016, then again in 2017.
The DreamHack event will be held in Malmö as a part of the Malmö Game Week festival and will be split into two stages — the group stage and playoffs.
Group Stages will take place in Malmö Mässan, the exhibition and convention centre in the city. Playoffs, on the other hand, will move to the Malmö Arena.
Michael Van Driel, the chief product officer at DreamHack, was understandably excited after the announcement.
“Malmö was the first city to ever host DreamHack Masters and so it holds a special place in all of our hearts, including a legendary win from NiP (Ninjas in Pyjamas) on home soil,” Van Driel said.
“We are tremendously excited to bring CORSAIR DreamHack Masters back to Malmö Arena and fans can expect the best experience yet as we expand to feature matches for 3 days in the arena and continue with more improvements for the visitor experience.”
As of now, the only information regarding the event is that it will happen.

The DreamHack Counter-Strike official twitter account simply wrote, “Back to where it all began…Malmö!!”, which was enough to light up the eyes of CS: GO fans around the globe. Other than that, there is no additional information released about it, however, we can expect the details about slot allocation to be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
Revealing the location of the 2nd CS: GO DreamHack Masters might come off as an early Christmas present for all the European CS: GO fans, who will not be able to attend the DreamHack Dallas 2019 event, that is set to take place from May 28th to June 2nd.
While there will, of course, still be fans who live far from Malmö and won’t be able to attend the event, it’s still nice to see DreamHack Masters returning to where it all began.
