DreamHack’s online Fortnite tournament reached astronomical numbers ahead of its July debut.


Competitive Fortnite is on the brink of a $1.75 million DreamHack tournament series across three of its most populated regions. Players within the NA East, NA West and Europe regions are readying to compete for a $250,000 prize pool every month for the next six months beginning in July and ending in January. The DreamHack Online Open featuring Fortnite serves as a consolation, considering the entire world is still enduring the COVID-19 pandemic. With the competition kicking off this coming weekend, DreamHack released some exciting tidbits ahead of this critical step in competitive Fortnite.

DreamHack Open Receives Over 250K Registrants

In an official press release, DreamHack announced that over a quarter million players have registered to compete globally.
