Rainbow Six: Siege heads to DreamHack Montreal

Rainbow Six esports

The Rainbow Six team is excited to announce the addition of another official minor event: DreamHack Montreal! On September 7-9, teams from across the globe can compete for a total prize pool of $50,000 and the chance to join teams Millenium and I Don’t Know as official DreamHack champions!


The addition of Rainbow Six to the upcoming DreamHack Montreal festival comes as a reply to all the fans and players who reached out asking for a tournament to be hosted in Canada, the country home to the studio that produces Rainbow Six: Siege. The format will stay the same with 12 Pro or Challenger teams being directly seeded to the main tournament meanwhile four teams will be fighting their way through the Bring Your Own Computer qualifier open for all LAN attendees of the event in traditional DreamHack spirit!


In addition to the usual DreamHack prizes, the champions of DreamHack Montreal will secure a guaranteed spot at the Six Invitational 2019, the most prestigious competitive Rainbow Six: Siege event of the year. This is the first announced qualifier for the Six Invitational 2019, and we’ll be giving a full list of how teams can qualify for the Six Invitational during an esports panel at the Paris Major on Sunday, August 19th during the Main Event, live on stream on our official Twitch channel.


Six Invitaional 2019 – Team roster requirements
The team that wins the spot for the Six Invitation is required to have three out of five players from the original roster which secured the spot at DreamHack Montreal when attending the Six Invitational. The team will be replaced from the Six Invitational if it changes more than two players.

Pro League Players already qualified for the Paris Major
Teams with players that are part of rosters that have already qualified for the Paris Major will not be eligible to qualify through Dreamhack Montreal. Meaning, teams with mixed players where some are already qualified for the Six Invitational cannot win the spot.
