Among the many tournaments slated for DreamHack Dallas, it looks like EA Sports' Madden 19 will be a marquee event over the weekend.

DreamHack is a place to make gaming prowess known. Among the fighting game tournaments featuring pros like Justin Wong, PUBG tournaments featuring shroud and Dr DisRespect, Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) events and more, there’s plenty of opportunity to show you’re the best at any level of gaming. It would seem fans of EA’s virtual turf are about to get their chance at DreamHack too. Madden 19 is joining the DreamHack Dallas circuit in a tournament running through the weekend.

The Madden 19 tournament at DreamHack Dallas was announced on April 9, 2019 in a press release and on the DreamHack website. For the entire weekend of the DreamHack Dallas festival, May 31 to June 2, registered players will engage in a contest to see who handles the virtual pigskin best. A prize pool of $25,000 will be up for grabs for anyone that can rise through the brackets and come out on top. Registration has opened for the tournament today. A DreamHack Dallas ticket is required to participate.

With this being DreamHack Dallas’s inaugural year (seemingly moving away from DreamHack Austin at current), Chief Product Officer Michael Van Driel was excited to debut a Madden event in Dallas, home of the Cowboys.

“Bringing DreamHack to Dallas for the first time is going to be epic — this is such a great city with a passion for sports at its core, including the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys,” said Van Driel. “Dallas is also known to be a strong breeding ground for tomorrow’s esports professionals, so it will be a tremendous experience to see what this community brings to the Madden NFL Tournament.”

Indeed, Dallas is the home of the Overwatch Team, the Dallas Fuel, as well as a new esports stadium, the Arlington Esports Stadium. The city has had a huge growth in esports efforts in even just the span of two years, and now DreamHack Dallas becomes the latest to join the esports gaming hotbed in the area.

Be sure to follow DreamHack on Twitter and Facebook for all of the latest on DreamHack Dallas, the Madden 19 tournament, and other competitive gaming from the DreamHack scene.
