DreamHack gave up on LAN tournament till the end of 2020

Tournament operator DreamHack announced the decision to reschedule all LAN tournaments scheduled for 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


“The goal for all of us at DreamHack is to provide great experiences at our events, which thrive by bringing communities together for these shared and beloved festival weekends all around the globe,” said DreamHack Co-CEO Marcus Lindmark. “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.” 


Lindmark continued: “This has been a very different year for everyone, but we are fully committed to bringing our festivals back in 2021. DreamHack will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten), as well as other national health authorities for guidance on resuming our festivals. Until then, we will continue to innovate so we can connect with our fans through great content.”

The decision concerned the next festivals:

 DreamHack Rotterdam (October 16-18).
 DreamHack Hyderabad (October 31 - November 1)
 DreamHack Atlanta (November 13-15)
 DreamHack Winter (November 27-29)
 DreamHack Madrid (December 11-13)

DreamHack is currently running an online Open Summer competition in Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania. The company will also organize the final RMR tournament for Europe, which will take place in mid October.
