TI12 ticket prices revealed, with finals tickets running to over $700

Tickets to the three-day finals of TI12 will cost $699 plus booking fees. 

The ticket prices for The International 2023 (TI12) have been revealed, and the price has risen from previous years. News about ticket prices was released on an official blog post in the late evening of August 18.

In the post, the price of both finals tickets and individual playoffs tickets was revealed. For finals, tickets will be sold as a three-day pass for the full event, running to $699 USD plus booking fees with Ticketmaster.

Individual tickets for playoffs, also known now as “The Road to the International,” will be priced at $99 per day, plus fees.

TI12 ticket price hike

To soften the blow for this pricing, all attendees to The International 2023 at the Climate Pledge Arena (The final three days) are guaranteed one Treasure of the Crimson Witness 2023. Traditionally, there was a random chance of any live attendees who saw a First Blood at The International receiving a Treasure of the Crimson Witness. This will still be the case at TI12, but purchases of the nearly $700 ticket will get one Treasure automatically.

As Dota stats man Ben “Noxville” Steenhuisen pointed out on Twitter/X, the price has increased by a minimum of $60 without fees. This could be closer to $110 with fees included.

The price rise may put a damper on many people’s hopes to be part of The International’s return to Seattle and the US. For comparison, tickets for TI7, the previous International held in Seattle, ran to just $300 for the same amount of time.
