Announced earlier this week, we’re teaming up with DreamHack, the world’s largest digital festival, to bring console eSports to their events around the world. Our first mission begins this weekend as the the main sponsor of the DreamHack: Call of Duty Championship.
As sponsors, we’ll be providing A40 headsets and MixAmp Pros for teams competing at all three tournaments: the Swedish Championship Finals, the Nordic Championship Finals and the Call of Duty Invitational at DreamHack Summer.
The Swedish Championship kicks off this weekend on May 24th, broadcasting live from the Monster Energy DreamHack Studios in Stockholm. Four invited teams and four qualified teams will play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Xbox One in a best of 3, double elimination bracket. The team that rises triumphant will not only take home the 20,000 SEK prize pool, but they also advance to the Nordic Championship.
Watch the action LIVE on Twitch: Sunday May 24th @ 10am CEST // 1am PDT – twitch.tv/dreamhacktv
Two weeks later, we’ll return to the Monster Energy DreamHack Studios in Stolkholm for the Nordic Championship. The winner of the Swedish Championship will combat against invites from Denmark, Norway and Finland in a best of 5, double elimination bracket. The victors will be awarded the 50,000 SEK prize pool and continue on to the DreamHack Call of Duty Invitational.
Our last sponsored broadcast will occur on June 15th in Jönköping Sweden at DreamHack Summer 2015. While information is still pending about the final showdown, we’ve heard the Nordic Winner will compete against an international pro-team!
We’re extremely excited to have DreamHack as our partners and hope that you’ll join us to see how these competitions unfold. Have an amazing weekend ASTRO Family, and don’t forget to tune in this weekend!
