The International 10 to be held this October in Bucharest

American company Valve has announced the new location and dates for The International – Dota 2 Championships. It’s not Ukraine.

  • The International 10 – Dota 2 Championships will be held in Bucharest, Romania.
  • The venue is the largest stadium of the country Arena Nationala. It is the same place where the matches of Euro 2020 were held.
  • Also, the company has announced the new dates: Group Stage – October 7-10, Main Stage – October 12, the final – October 17.
  • The prize pool is $40 million.
  • Valve says that information on ticket sales will come later, but for now, there are no details.

Bucharest was one of the main contenders to host the event after Stockholm refused. Kyiv did not get that opportunity.
