DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 - Schedule, prize pool, format, and how to watch

Everything you need to know about the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 online tournaments kicking off on 9th May 2020
While the DreamHack Summer and Dallas events were rescheduled last month, we can still look forward to a tonne of CS:GO esports action from DreamHack, in the form of the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 online tournaments.

We will get to see a total of 32 teams participating in the event from 19th May to 7th June, in four online tournaments for DreamHack Masters Spring 2020. Here's everything you need to know about the CS:GO tournaments starting next month.


About DreamHack Masters Spring 2020


DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 will be held in four regions, Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania. All four tournaments will be played entirely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournaments feature top teams from each region, with a combined total of 32 teams spread across the four regions. Europe is the biggest region, with 16 teams after some great qualifier matches recently took place.

Not all of the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 tournaments will take place on the same dates, with Asia, as well as Oceania, kicking off after the completion of the Europe and North America group stages.

DreamHack Masters prize pool


Since DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 is split into four tournaments, there will be four prize pools. The total prize pool is $300,000, with each region getting a slice of the pie. The prize pools depend on how many teams participate, which is why Europe gets the lion's share of the total prize pool, $160,000.

  • Europe - $160,000
  • North America - $100.000
  • Asia - $20,000
  • Oceania - $20,000

The exact prize distribution is currently unknown. 


DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 format


The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 tournament format is a bit different depending on the region. Europe and North America follow the same format, while Asia and Oceania won't have a group stage, but instead, go straight into the playoffs, due to a small number of teams competing.

Europe and North America format:

The group stage for both Europe, and North America tournaments, will follow a round-robin format. All matches in the group stages are best-of-three, with the winning team of each group advancing to the upper bracket of the playoffs. The second and third-place teams advance to the lower-bracket of the playoffs, while the bottom team in each group gets eliminated.

The playoffs in Europe, as well as North America, will follow a double-elimination bracket. All matches are best-of-three, except for the grand final, which is best-of-five. A one map advantage will be given to the team which made their way through the upper bracket.

Asia and Oceania format:

For the Asia and Oceania tournaments, there will only be a double-elimination bracket. All matches are best-of-three, with the exception of the grand final, which is best-of-five. In the grand final, there will be a one map advantage to the team who made it through the upper bracket.


DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 schedule


With DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 running from 19th May to 14th June, there's a lot of CS:GO esports action to look forward to. Not all tournaments start at the same time. Instead, the four tournaments will take place between the following dates:

  • America - Group stage from 19th to 30th May / Playoffs from 8th to 14th June
