First player soon ready for Valencia Invitational

In September DreamHack will host Valencia Invitational with 8 of world’s greatest players attending. Today we’re proud to reveal the first information and the first player to be announced today 22th of July in a Showmatch.

Valencia Invitational is still a By-Invite-Only event to please the audience on-site and millions of fans around the world that watch it live on livestream. DreamHack select players based on achievements but also popularity and earlier DreamHack participation.

Players

Same format as Stockholm Invitational – one Spanish player
Just like, Stockholm Invitational, we’ll have 8 players playing a single elimination bracket, starting 15.00 CET and Grand Finals 21.00 CET. All matches are played BO3, except the Grand Finals played in BO5. A slight difference from the Stockholm event will be that one tournament slot is reserved for a Spanish player.

    - In order to provide the Spanish StarCraft 2 community some extra excitement we decided quite early in the process that we need one slot for the local community, says Tomas Hermansson, Head of eSports at DreamHack.

The Spanish player will be decided today, 22th of July, in a showmatch at 16.00 CET between the two best Spanish players Pedro “LucifroN” Moreno Duran and Juan ‘Vortix’ Moreno Duran. Both of them had a WarCraft 3 career before they started to play StarCraft 2, with LucifroN having the best international results, winning ESWC Asia Masters and runner-up at BlizzCon 2008.

    - They are brothers and they got the skill to upset the professional players in the Invitational tournament. Vortix play Zerg and Lucifron Terran and we have an interesting TvZ to look forward to, says Manuel Jiménez, Head Admin at Canales Corporativos, DreamHack’s local partner in Spain.

Everybody can watch the showmatch via livestream at www.dreamhack.es. Only Spanish commentators will be available.

In the upcoming weeks we’ll announce more and more information about Valencia Invitational, including invited players, commentators, tickets and streams.
