Creating the world’s most prestigious Dota 2 League
The long-term goal is to create the world’s most prestigious Dota 2 league with focus on Europe and North America. DreamHack will combine worldwide community coverage with livestreams at Twitch.TV with localised mainstream coverage in traditional media channels like TV6, in order to promote the league. In Season #1, 12 teams will be divided into 3 divisions (North America, Europe East and Europe West), where they will fight for $100,000 in the prize money. During 2014 DreamHack will host 2 seasons that will span over 10-12 weeks and with Live Finals at DreamHack events. The full League format is a combination of Online matches with Studio broadcast, Playoff matches inside the Studio and DreamHack’s trademark – the best Live Stage Production in the industry.
- DreamHack already produces some of the best Stage Show’s and Live Events in the eSports Industry. Now it’s time to provide the same level of entertainment on a daily basis and with our new Studio we will have that capacity, said Robert Ohlén, CEO of DreamHack.

6 of the world’s greatest eSports teams invited to Kick-off Season
DreamHack will work closely with the team organisations and make them partners to the league, but also keep them independent. DreamHack have in close partnership with six invited teams designed a new model, where teams are not only taking part as teams and players, but will work to promote ASUS ROG DreamLeague. On top of getting top exposure at Twitch.TV and TV6, DreamLeague will provide the teams with travel support to LAN finals, stream- and broadcast statistics and also kick-back on specific revenue streams.
- DreamHack believes in a eSports community where every part (players, teams, leagues, events, media, publishers) take their fair share of responsibility and together create a sustainable ecosystem. In DreamHack’s past we have always had a distinct line between team’s responsibilities and the responsibilities of a tournament. ASUS ROG DreamLeague is our first big league project and having a close partnership with the team organisations is key to make this a long-term and sustainable project for everyone, said Robert Ohlén, CEO of DreamHack.
