Valve To Refund All Tickets Of The International 2021 DOTA 2 Championship


One of the biggest esports events of the world, The International 2021 DOTA 2 Championship which was to be held in Romania will now be held virtually. Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Romania, the organisers have decided that the tournament will not have any in-person attendance. Valve, the developer and publisher of DOTA, also organises the annual tournament, has decided to refund all the tickets for the tournaments.

The International is the biggest and most prestigious tournament of DOTA 2. It was scheduled to be held at the Arena Nationala situated in the Romanian capital of Bucharest. The event scheduled from 7th October to 17th October 2021, was supposed to be played in front of a live audience, but unfortunately, that has now been scraped off. The tournament will however be held on the scheduled dates virtually.

Valve issued an official statement regarding the matter that stated, “We have been carefully evaluating the continued rise of Covid rates in Romania, as well as the resulting introduction of new local restrictions in Bucharest. To ensure the safety of all players, talent, and production staff participating in the event, we have decided to refund all ticket sales for The International 2021.”

“We wanted nothing more than to welcome fans live to the event, but we can no longer do so in a way that allows us to prioritize the health and well-being of both audience members and participants. Those who purchased tickets will be issued a full refund automatically,” Valve added.

The group stage matches of the tournament will take place between 7th October to 10th October. It will be followed by the Main Event starting on 12th October, 2021. The top two teams who qualify from the Main Event will make their way to the Grand Finals on 17th October, 2021. This year’s edition is the 10th year of the tournament and features a humongous prize pool of $40,018,195.
