Shortly after ESL revealed that the major circuit would come back to ESL One Cologne in the Lanxess Arena, DreamHack have revealed details for the European Minor Championship, which will be held as part of DreamHack Tours.
DreamHack Tours will have $50,000 on offer, the same amount for all four minors. The event will take place from May 14-16, nearly two months prior to the Cologne Major.

The qualifiers will be played on the following weekends:
