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
- Ghost Gaming
- 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.
