The world’s biggest Dota 2 tournament is returning to Europe after nine years.
The International is making a homecoming of sorts, with Stockholm, Sweden as the tournament’s venue for its 10th anniversary. The first International took place at Cologne, Germany in 2011.
The move was not unexpected, given the strength of European squads such as Team Liquid, OG, and Team Secret in the tournament. Having these teams play on their home soil, so to speak, would definitely be a treat to their loyal local fan bases.
Teams who want to play at TI10 will have to qualify by earning Dota Pro Circuit points playing at the Minor and Major DPC tournaments, which will take place throughout next year. Valve has not yet released any details of where these events will be held.
