If you were planning to attend TI10, but were alarmed by the lack of Ticket Sales, then worry no more!

After months of wondering whether The International 10 would have a live audience or not, Dota 2 fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Valve announces TI10 ticket sales. The news was announced in a blog post on the official Dota 2 website posted on the evening of September 16th.

The confirmation comes two weeks after Valve released a Ticket Sale ‘update.’ In that post the company outlined that “With circumstances constantly changing, we want to be careful to make a well-informed and safe decision regarding ticket sales closer to the event.” 

After a fortnight of deliberation, the decision was made: Fans will be live and in person at the event.

As per the announcement, tickets will go on sale September 22nd, at 12:00 pm Eastern European Summer Time (EEST). Tickets are available for purchase at this website. The event, of course, takes place at National Arena in Bucharest for The International 2021. The group stage will run from October 7th-10th, while the Main Event at the National Arena will take place between the 12th-17th.

The T10 ticket sales come in three two-day bundles:

  • Midweek 1 (October 12 and 13): 249 Romanian Leu (approx. $60).
  • Midweek 2 (October 14 and 15): 249 Romanian Leu (approx. $60).
  • Finals (October 16 and 17): 999 Romanian Leu (approx. $240).

Extra Precautions For TI10

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the event will have extra precautions to ensure safety. All attendees are required  to be fully vaccinated and masked. Additionally, Valve advises that you must follow all the rules and restrictions specific to travelling from your country of origin. And it emphasised that additional protocols will be in place at the event proper. A full FAQ is available here.

Alongside the announcement of the TI10 ticket sales, Valve revealed the full line-up of the Broadcast talent.

Beyond familiar names such as Jake “SirActionSlacks” Kanner, Michelle “Moxxi” Song and Jorien “Sheever” van der Heijden, are recent superstar Mira “Ephey” Riad and new face from the wider esports scene, Frankie Ward.


Alongside the ticket announcement, Valve also unleashed a host of changes in time for TI, as well as a free International Compendium. Full details about this as well as TI10 ticket sales are available on the official blog post.
