DreamHack will not be hosting any live events in 2020 as the tournament organizer announced today.
“We have never had to postpone events like this before—but these are extraordinary times, and the safety of our attendees and staff has never been more important than now,” co-CEO Marcus Lindmark said in an official statement.
Due to COVID-19, DreamHack will push back all scheduled events to 2021 in the interest of staff, player, and public safety. Many countries where events were set to take place have restrictions on large gatherings.
The included locations and events that will be pushed back are Rotterdam, Hyderabad, Atlanta, Sweden, and Madrid. The organizer will still put on online events this year for CS:GO and other games.
DreamHack is one of the largest names in the CS:GO tournament scene, with them putting on multiple events a year. Currently the tournament organizer has three tournaments going on for CS:GO. These tournaments are being used to replace cancelled events.
Earlier this year the organizer also cancelled scheduled tournaments in Dallas, Sweden, and Montreal all due to COVID-19. There will be an announcement in the future with the 2021 dates.
