Tickets will go on sale via Ticketmaster in two waves and it starts from today, April 7, at 10 a.m. PT . You should definitely take a look at this list about corresponding international times based on your location. The second wave will start 12 hours later at 10 PM PT.
Passes and tickets are now being sold for two events, The “Midweek Ticket” and the “Finals Ticket.” As you can probably guess from the names and titles, “Midweek Tickets” will allow access to the opening ceremony at Key Arena, as well as the first four days of the event, from Aug.8-11, as well as the All-Star Match. The “Finals Ticket” will allow access to Key Arena for the final two days of The International, on Aug. 12-13.
“Midweek Tickets” will sell for $75 USD, and “Finals Ticket” will sell for $100 each. You can purchase them separately, but there is also an option for packages for people who want to enjoy the entire event live. Attendees without the Finals ticket can spectate the last two days of the 2016 International Dota 2 Championship at an outdoor event space hosted by Valve.
Valve published also a blog post about the event, revealing that they would be providing cosmetic giveaways to attendees when each match’s “First Blood”( meaning the first kill of every game) occurs. Winners will be randomly selected from viewers inside the arena at the time of first blood who have their Steam IDs attached to their event badges.
The 2016 International Dota 2 Championship will take place from Aug. 8-13 at Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
