DreamHack Leipzig – Home Edition for 2021 Announced

Esports tournament and gaming events organizer DreamHack announced Thursday that DreamHack Leipzig 2021 will not be an in-person event due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and related travel and safety restrictions. 

Instead, the company announced DreamHack Leipzig – Home Edition, which encourages the community to “come together in small groups at home, in gaming bars, or other locations” from Jan. 22-24, 2021, with competitions being played online.

Community members can take part in the event by visiting participating venues such as LVL-Berlin, the 1337 Camp, and TaKe’s Gaming Bar.

A full accounting of sponsors, partners, and competitions were not disclosed at the time of writing, though DreamHack Leipzig has in the past hosted Majors for Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and other competitions.

DreamHack says that the 2022 edition of the event will return to the Leipzig Trade Fair grounds in Leipzig, Germany, Jan. 28 – 30, 2022.

Parent company Modern Times Group announced in September that it would merge DreamHack and ESL into one entity, but both companies would retain their branding and continue to operate tournaments and events.
