NiP and Virtus.Pro get their invitations to DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019. Read the recent esports news about the participants of the tournament.
In mid-April, DreamHack will host in the Swedish city of Malmö the first of two Masters events that will be held this year, with $250,000 on offer in both championships.
Sixteen teams - eight invited and eight qualified - will pit their wits against each other over six days at DreamHack Masters Malmö, which will feature a live event component at Malmö Arena, the second-largest indoor arena in Sweden.
After previously announcing fnatic and Astralis as the first two invitees, DreamHack has now revealed that Virtus.pro and Ninjas in Pyjamas, who currently sit sixth and seventh, respectively, in our world ranking, have been added to the list of participants.
