The International 10 returns to Bucharest, Romania this fall to be played at the Arena Națională football stadium. Earlier today, Valve through a blog update announced ticket sales towards the International 10, to start from September 22. Eighteen teams across the Dota Pro Circuit [DPC] and regional qualifiers made it through to the main event and would now battle it out to lift the Aegis of Champions.
The 10th iteration of the International will return to the European zone after a span of 11 years with Germany being the last venue to ever have hosted an International in 2011. Known as the “TI”, the latter had been an annual event until it was called off in 2020 amid the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic which forced every Esports initiative to transition to an online format.
As mentioned, Dota2 today revealed their ticket sales towards the TI10 after careful considerations going into the event to accommodate a live audience in the Arena Națională followed by some additional requirements marked as safety protocols to be followed while attending the same. They are listed below in order as declared by Dota2, Valve.
- TI10 is a fully-masked, fully-vaccinated event, meaning all attendees must be at least 10 days past their final vaccination.
- All patrons wishing to access the Arena grounds and/or the Arena itself will need to show proof of vaccination status (along with a valid ID) at the Vaccination Verification tent located just next to Will Call. In order to be verified, your vaccination proof will need to be in English or Romanian.
- You will need to wear both your RFID badge and vaccination verification wristband to attend the event.
- As an added precaution, we will also be requiring all attendees to wear a mask.
To be noted: If you are planning to travel to the event from outside Romania, please check for any additional rules and restrictions that may apply to where you are traveling from.
The International 10 will kick off with an initial round of Group Stage followed by Playoffs and the Grand Finals.
Group Stage is scheduled to run from October 7-10 while the Main Event will be played from October 12-17. The ticket sales for the main event will be divided into three separate two-day bundles:
- Midweek 1 (October 12 and 13): 249 Lei (Approx $60 USD)
- Midweek 2: (October 14 and 15) 249 Lei (Approx $60 USD)
- Finals: (October 16 and 17) 999 Lei (Approx $237 USD)
