It’s almost time for one of the premier StarCraft II events of the year. The summer edition of the 2011 DreamHack SAPPHIRE AMD Championship starts this weekend at DreamHack Summer 2011 LAN in Jönköping, Sweden.
From June 18-21, 48 of the best StarCraft II players from around the world will compete for glory, global recognition, and their share of the 200,000 SEK (approx. $30,000 USD) prize money; half of that sum awaits the ultimate champion. With 46 players picked by DreamHack’s tournament organizers through the open request system and the remaining two spots filled by the winners of a talent-packed BYOC (‘Bring Your Own Computer’) qualifier, the roster will contain a plethora of StarCraft II stars, no doubt capable of making this a memorable tournament. Whether you’re a DreamHack attendee or an online spectator, you won’t want to miss any of the action.
For everyone’s viewing pleasure, DreamHack’s organizers are offering comprehensive coverage of the event. DreamHack Summer 2011 will consist of five separate free English streams featuring some well-known broadcast personalities; community favorites Sean “Day” Plott and Shaun “Apollo” Clark will be covering the main stream.
