Tournament organizers DreamHack have announced their team invitations for the upcoming CS:GO event: DreamHack Open Tours 2019. As the name suggests, the event will be held in Tours, France, with a prize pool of $100,000 USD. DreamHack stated that there will be eight teams that will be in attendance, and they will compete from May 17-19.

The eight teams that were announced via Dreamhack on Twitter are:

  • G2 Esports
  • mousesports
  • Ghost Gaming
  • AVANGAR
  • Valiance
  • FrenchFrogs (Ex-3DMAX)
  • Instinct Gaming
  • Windigo Gaming

Dreamhack Tours is an international event. It’s considered to be a moderately significant tournament with usually two or more high-tier teams such as mousesports and G2, but with second-tier international teams such as Ghost Gaming and Valiance attending as well.

The local teams that were invited include G2 Esports, French Frogs (ex-3DMAX) and Instinct Gaming, all of which have a majority French roster.

The last Dreamhack Open in Rio de Janeiro was won by AVANGAR. Valiance also attended, finishing third-fourth.

Windigo Gaming and Instinct Gaming both qualified for the event via the European and French qualifier respectively.

You can catch all the action from Dreamhack Tours live from twitch.tv/dreamhackcs.
