DreamHack have announced the qualifier dates for their first Open stop of the year in Rio de Janeiro, with the North America and North Latin America open qualifier set to take place on March 9th. The closed qualifier will take the place the following day, March 10th, awarding a single team with a spot at the $100,000 event.

In similiar fashion to previous DreamHack Open qualifiers, the DreamHack Open Rio open qualifier will take place on ESEA, and award the top four teams spots in the closed qualifier. There, the four qualifying teams will be joined by an additional four invited sides, where they will play through a single-elimination best-of-three bracket to crown a champion, who will earn a spot at DreamHack Open Rio.

Notably, neither qualifier offers a spot to any team outside of the Americas, with one qualifier for Brazil/South Latin America and the other for North America/North Latin America. The remaining six spots at the event will be determined by invites, with three them already having been announced — Luminosity, FURIA, and Sharks. The remaining three invites are set to be revealed in the near future.
