ESL One Birmingham Dota 2 Event Returns for Third Year

Posted by GEVGA Editor January 21, 2020 in Esports

ESL has announced that its largest annual live event in the UK will return to Birmingham Arena for a third consecutive year. Promoted as “ESL One Birmingham powered by Intel,” the Dota 2 tournament will award a $300K USD prize pool between eight invitees and four regional qualifiers from Europe and CIS, North America, China, and Southeast Asia, with the main tournament taking place May 29-31.

Last year’s ESL One Birmingham broke the company’s viewership record for its Dota 2 events thus far. In addition to the main tournament, the event will include the grand finale for the first-ever ESL Academy season, presented by DHL. This grassroots competition for new Dota 2 talent began in October, will hold an official draft at the ESL One Los Angeles Major in March, and will culminate in a mainstage final on May 30—with the winning team taking home the lion’s share of a $240K prize pool.
