The Bali Major tickets went on sale — and then they quickly weren’t.
Despite the high prices for the Bali Major, the demand wasn’t lacking. Tickets were almost entirely gone within the first minutes, even causing issues with the ticketing site — with organizer Io Esports confirming that the Major was sold out six hours after the sale went live.
Standard tickets went on sale for US$388, while premium tickets were available for US$888.

Bali Major’s eye-popping ticket prices did not slow ticket sales
The ticket prices have quickly drawn comparisons for the community, especially to past events in Southeast Asia. The recent The International 11 took place in Singapore, and was already considered one of the most expensive tournaments to go to. Other fans have fond memories of the iconic Manila Major — especially of tickets that cost just PH₱200, or about US$3.60.
It’s expensive, even for The International standards — US$388 for the standard tickets, almost the same price as TI11’s Singapore tickets, and US$888 for premium, which doubles TI11’s finals weekend tickets.
The Bali Major runs from June 29 to July 9, with the finals weekend taking place at the Champa Garden, Ayana Estate, from July 7 to 9. The event will be the last Major of 2023’s Dota Pro Circuit, with several teams hoping to claim their spots in Indonesia and earn enough points for a direct invite to TI12, taking place in October in Seattle.
