Esport United Proudly presents The Battle for the North!
In colaboration with Razer, Logitech and we hope to make it a good event!

In the cold city of Jönköping deep in the forests of Sweden, the Dungeon halls of the Elmia Exhibition and Convention Centre are empty, with whispers of trade fair events blowing in the wind. Every June and November however, something different happens. The halls are lined up with tables, exhibitors construct their booths, and stages are built to showcase the best esports players in the world competing for glory. When the doors open, thousands of people flow in, all for one event: DreamHack.

Team Fortress 2 is no stranger to DreamHack, with two events being hosted in the Swedish city: DreamHack Winter 2015 and DreamHack Summer 2016. Late November will see the return of TF2 at their upcoming event, DreamHack Winter 2016: Battle for the North.

It’s going to be an exciting weekend of TF2. So be sure to tune in to see all the action! A special thanks to Esports United,, Logitech, and Razer.
