The annual DOTA 2 esports extravaganza, The International, will be heading to Vancouver this year and the top DOTA 2 teams will once again battle to be the ultimate team. Last year Team Liquid took the $10.8 million prize money and trophy with a 3-0 victory over Newbee.
There’s a change of location this year and The International will take place at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday, 20 August through Saturday, 25 August.
Ticket sales will get underway on 23 March at 10:00 AM and 10:00 PM PDT and there will be two ticket variations on sale via Ticketmaster. There will be a mid-week ticket which costs $125 CAD which grants access to the tournament’s first four days between 20-23rd August. The Final Ticket costs $250CAD which grants access to the last two days which is 24-25 August.
No doubt it will be another hotly contested tournament that no DOTA 2 fan will want to miss. Lots of cash will, of course, be up for grabs.
