In partnership with Chipotle. Find out more about the Chipotle Challenger Series below.
The Chipotle Challenger Series, the first ever battle royale tournaments hosted specifically for fans at DreamHack events, will return at DreamHack Atlanta after the success of DreamHack Dallas. Once again, attendees will get the chance to compete to be the last fans standing.
DreamHack Dallas’ tournament featured the popular battle royale title PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds while Atlanta's game of choice when DreamHack descends upon the city in November is currently unconfirmed.
Teams of two signed up to compete in heats which took place on Friday and Saturday. Winning teams then advanced to the final round where the Chipotle Challenger Series Winner was crowned on Sunday.
In addition to the tournament itself, participating players also got the chance to meet up with members of the TSM Fortnite pro team, professional athletes and OpTic Gaming's Hector 'HECZ' Rodriguez.
The first Chipotle Challenger Series tournament took place at DreamHack Dallas, between May 31 and June 2, in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
For those that couldn't make it to Dallas, or for anyone that wants to take part in more than one event, a second Chipotle Challenger Series competition will take place at DreamHack Atlanta in the Georgia World Congress Center from November 15 to 17.
You’ll be an instant winner just by entering as there are free burrito cards for all participants! Chipotle swag will also be handed out to finalists and the Chipotle Challenger Series Trophy and Look Pack will go to the winning team. This includes a VIP experience at DreamHack and free Chipotle for a year.
Registration for the Dallas was available on-site only during the first two days of the event and stayed open up to 30 minutes prior to each heat’s start time. While the DreamHack Atlanta registration details are currently unconfirmed, the first step to signing up is to purchase your ticket to attend the LAN event!
This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.
In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
The Chipotle Mexican Grill brand is now linking up with more esports royalty in the form of DreamHack - an esports tournament and convention organizer with roots that stretch back to the 1990s.
