Earlier, Valve announced in its blog post that DOTA 2’s annual championship tournament ‘The International’ will take place this year after one-year hiatus. The halt came due to the global pandemic and the championship was postponed indefinitely. However, this year The International will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, and will start with the group stage on August 5th which will end on August 8th. The International is famous for ultra-competitive matches and mammoth prize pool and this year’s prize pool is more than $40 million.

As for in-house audience attendance, Valve has yet to clear the situation, “As we continue to plan the event around the shifting landscape presented by the ongoing global pandemic, our focus remains on finding ways to hold a high-quality tournament in the safest way possible.” Valve further added, “This means we’re waiting to release additional details on attendance options as we gather more information on developments heading into summer. We expect to be able to share more with the community during the month of June.”
