Dota 2: The International 2014 Sells Out in an Hour

By   /   Apr 6, 2014

Valve’s annual International championship for Dota 2 takes place this year at Seattle’s Key Arena stadium between July 18 and 21. The venue houses around 10,000 seats; all of which got sold out in less than an hour after going on sale.

“Tickets were gone roughly one hour after they went on sale”, confirmed Valve’s Doug Lombardi to onGamers. The tickets include both general admission and VIP tickets; and currently the venue is showing as sold out.

Something similar happened with League of Legends for its Season 2 World Championship where fans surprised developer Riot Games by purchasing every available ticket in quick time. Later on more seating arrangements were made possible and tickets went up for sale again. It’s possible that Valve follows the same path and will send out another wave of tickets soon.

It’s also reported that some of the tickets have found their way on eBay where they are being sold for $500 or more and these are just the general admission tickets. They normally cost $100, with floor seats for $199, and a VIP package at $499.

This year’s International will see to 11 teams being invited directly, as well as four Regional Qualifiers taking place May 12th through the 25th. The winner of each Qualifier will receive an invitation, with the four runner-ups competing in Seattle for the final spot
