Since the founding of Twitch in 2009, DreamHack has partnered with the company, formerly known as Justin.tv. DreamHack announces that it will continue the partnership that has currently been running for eight years now.
“It’s not everyday in this space you renew a partnership entering its 9th year,” said Marcus Lindmark, CEO of the Swedish digital festival company. “We are proud to continue to partner with Twitch, knowing they are as committed to the development of esports and gaming as DreamHack.”
DreamHack is currently on the eleventh major with over $2,000,000 being offered in DOTA2, Hearthstone, and CS:GO.
“DreamHack is not only one of our longest running partners, they are immensely popular among the Twitch community,” said Stuart Saw, Director of Esports Strategy, Twitch. “As the esports industry continues to evolve, DreamHack has been at the forefront of the movement with our partnership enabling them to reach a global audience. We look forward to another year of sharing their incredible content with the passionate esports fanbase on Twitch.”
Twitch has been facing issues due to YouTube signing exclusive deals with EPL and ECS. The partnership with DreamHack maintains the valuable partnership between both companies to provide the best event possible.
