Dreamhack Smash is a very well known tournament series for competitive Super Smash Bros. gamers. Now, the series takes a huge step forward with the Dreamhack Smash Championship 2017.

The championship will take place over the course of a year, and will span 6 different tournaments: four in North America, and two in Sweden. The North American tourneys will feature both Super Smash Bros Melee Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, while the Swedish ones will include only the fan-favorite Super Smash Bros Melee.

Every tournament will have a $10,000 dollar prize pool, which makes for a total of $100,000 across the year. Cash prizes range from $4,700 for 1st place, to $300 for 8th.

The location of the events in North America will be Austin, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; Montreal, Canada; and Denver, Colorado. The specific location in Sweden is still unknown (right now they are simply called DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter).

You can purchase tickets to any of the events via the tickets page. The first tournament is held in Austin on April 28-30. If you’re not going to making all the way to Austin, you can always stay home and watch the tournaments online.
