All Access SwitzerLAN Ticket
This is the “Standard Ticket” which includes a LAN Seat (with a triple socket & a LAN cable), accesss to the sleeping hall and a 3 day HeroFest ticket.


All Access SwitzerLAN Supporter Ticket
If you buy the Supporter Ticket you will receive a Supporter-Bag at the LAN in addition to the contents of the standard ticket.


SwitzerLAN 2019 VIP Ticket
At the moment the VIP Tickets are no available yet, as negotiations with partners are still ongoing. This seat will include a pre-installed and built gaming setup (PC, Monitor and Gaming Chair). In addition, you get all the benefits of a LAN ticket.
The upgrade from “Standard” to VIP will be possible. Further details will follow asap.


SwitzerLAN 2019 Hearthstone Competitor Ticket
For HS Players we will have a premier this year. The HS Competitor Ticket you will be your only access to the Hearthstone Main Tournament. It also includes the access to the sleeping hall and a 3 day HeroFest ticket but, you will not have your own seat, due the fact you will change your seat after every tournament round to play face to face with your opponent (like Dreamhack, Tour Stops or other big HS Events). Due this fact you are not allowed to bring your PC and have to use a Notebook, Tablet or Mobile Phone to play the Tournament.
In case you drop out of the Tournament you can still stay in the area in one of the free tables. You are also allowed to play in other Tournaments (excluding Main Tournaments) after your drop.


At this years SwitzerLAN we have 3 different types of Tournaments. The Main Tournaments, the Genre Tournaments and the Community Tournaments. Each of them will be explained in the upcoming lines.


Main Tournaments:
This type of the Tournaments include games like CS:GO and League of Legends. A complete list of the titles will be published soon. Each LAN attendee can only participate at one Main Tournament. Each of them will start on Friday Evening and the Finals will be played on Sunday. For each title their will be a Streamer booth where casters will cover the whole tournament. This type of tournament has also the highest prize moneys.
A special type of Main Tournaments is the Hearthstone Tournament which has a separate Tcket which is explained further up.
More details and information about all the titles and prize money will be published in the upcoming weeks, so make sure you follow us on social media and join our Discord.


Up next are the Genre Tournaments. Many of you like to play RTS, Battle Royale or Auto Battler. To run these tournaments more smoothly then last year we categorized them into Genres which will allow the attendees to attend in multiple titles of the same genre or different games over several genres. Some hints of the titles can be found in the graphic of the tournament page. https://www.switzerlan.ch/tournaments/


If you don’t like the highly competitive Main Tournaments or the hyped Auto Battlers, we have the Community Tournaments for you. Some classics like Quake Champions or Golf with your Friends will be covered by this type. There will be admins available at the event where you can request a title or they will help you to setup and announce a tournament you would like to run.


I hope I could give you some insights into the Tickets and Tournaments for the SwitzerLAN 2019 and you are a bit teased for the upcoming news and updates.


If you have questions feel free to use the #question channel on our Discord.

See you soon


SwitzerLAN is moving!

Sunday, 21.07.2019 14:00 by admin

This year, the SwitzerLAN is going to take place a little later than usual.
One of multiple changes is the whole LAN moving into a different BERNEXPO hall.

Date 21.-24.11.2019
Over 2000 PC's in Hall 3.2
Hall 3.1 for the Bar & Content Area --> less noise in the Lanhall 3.2
SwitzerLAN Pass includes HeroFest ticket
Ticketsale starts 28th of July
Prizepool more then 25'000 CHF


The next SwitzerLAN is coming. This year’s edition is going down from 21 until 24 November, so that you can enjoy the rest of the summer in peace.
When it’s raining and winding outside, we are going to assemble in the BERNEXPO to indulge in our collective passion: gaming.
This time we are going to colonize hall 3.2 (where the fantasy stage was at last year’s HeroFest) with over 2000 PCs. Thus we are trying to increase the record of the largest LAN ever in the german speaking world once again. However, our focus lies on a stable network, happy participants and a proper execution of the event. Our goal is to make the SwitzerLAN the best Swiss gaming event of the year.

Because we don’t want you to have to spend four straight days playing games (yes, we know some of you are going to do exactly that), there are various side activities. Have a cold beer or borrow a board game at the bar, prove your musical talent at the Rock Band corner, You can also pay a visit to the merch shop, which we are going to enhance and upgrade for 2019.You are heartly invited to the hall 3.1 (where you can look down to hall 3.0 where the esports stage was at last year's HeroFest) with a bar and a content area or you visit the HeroFest in the remaining halls.

We have approximately 7500 square meters to our disposition, and right next to us you’ll find the HeroFest, one of the biggest and most interesting gaming and fantasy expos that Switzerland has to offer. The HeroFest is going to feature even more content than last year: more cosplayers, more finals (for example Swisscom HeroLeague), and more artists. This year, your SwitzerLAN pass includes a HeroFest ticket for all 3 days.

To serve the different needs of our community, we once again have various sorts of tickets in our store. You can find all of them here after 28.07.2019. The best Swiss esports organizations are going to send their teams to Bern in a quest to represent their clan and bring home victory. There is a prize pool of more than 25’000 Swiss francs, so it’s not just fun and games anymore!
