ImageFollowing in the footsteps of last year's EM Dubai event ESL World has announced that there will be another event there from the 17th until the 24th of October 2009.

A packed tournament calender just got a little more tightly packed as ESL-World have announced the Extreme Masters return to Dubai with an event to be held in the near future of the 17th to the 24th of October 2009. With a prize pool of $30,000 for the event, which takes place in the focal point of the United Arab Emirates, this brings the total EM prize pool up to $530,000 for season 4.

Also announced:

"Furthermore there will be a Local Pro/Am competition in an unnamed discipline which remains secret for now."

Last year's event in Dubai, also held in October, saw Mousesports pick up the victory and reinsert themselves into people's minds as one of the elite teams. MYM were the runnersup and capped off a good year which saw them win another ESWC. Meanwhile it was significant to see a number of teams struggle with fnatic following up an event win in Montreal with a complete flop in 7th-8th place. SK-gaming managed a very meagre 5th-6th and could only get 4th. Meanwhile the team who benefited from those underperformances was Finland's GamePlay who took 3rd.
