DreamHack Sports Games currently operates eFootball leagues in Denmark with eSuperliga; the Netherlands with eDivisie; along with golf’s first esports initiative, the European eTour.
Now, the Swedish Professional Football Leagues (SEF) has announced a long-term partnership with DreamHack Sports Games, MTG’s sports simulation business unit, to strengthen the football association’s FIFA esports competition, eAllsvenskan. With the addition of Sweden’s eAllsvenskan, the organisation strengthens its presence in the Nordic market.
The partnership will see DreamHack Sports Games assist with the development of the eAllsvenskan, which is part of the EA Sports FIFA Global Series. SEF represents the 32 football clubs in Sweden’s top two football divisions; 17 of which have active teams in the virtual league, eAllsvenskan.
DreamHack Sports Games was created to bridge the gap between traditional sports and its video game counterparts. Most recently, DreamHack partnered with the NHL to produce the NHL Gaming World Championship, which is tentatively scheduled for March 2021. The event is said to expand on previous iterations of the competition and will aim to align more closely to the real-world action.
