In partnership with Chipotle. Find out more about the Chipotle Challenger Series here.
The Chipotle Challenger Series will feature the first ever battle royale tournaments hosted specifically for fans at DreamHack events. Attendees at both DreamHack Dallas and DreamHack Atlanta will get the chance to compete to be the last fans standing.
DreamHack Dallas’ tournament will feature PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds, while DreamHack Atlanta’s lead title is yet to be announced.
Teams of two can sign up to compete in heats taking place on Friday and Saturday. Winning teams will advance to the final round taking place Sunday where the Chipotle Challenger Series Winner will be awarded.
In addition to the tournament itself, participating players will also have the chance to meet up with members of the TSM Fortnite pro team.
The first Chipotle Challenger Series tournament takes place at DreamHack Dallas, between May 31 and June 2, in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
For those that can’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.
All registration will be available on-site only during the first two days of the event and will stay open up to 30 minutes prior to each heat’s start time. To register:
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 recongized 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.
