ESL One will see a World Cup football stadium, Commerzbank-Arena, host a massive Dota 2 eSports event in Frankfurt, Germany. With a maximum capacity of over 35,000 and millions more expected to tune in over live streaming platform, Twitch.tv, the event promises to be spectacular.
Eight teams will be selected to take part in the event: a select few of the world's most notable teams will have invitations extended to them, whilst the bulk of the group will have to qualify for the event through a set of regional qualifiers operated by joinDOTA. Once in Frankfurt, the teams will face off against one another on centre-stage in the hopes of taking home the lion’s share of the US$150,000 prize pool. Fans of the game will be able to further contribute to the prize pool by purchasing in-game items. More information on the qualification structure, invites and prize breakdown will follow in the coming weeks.
On the 28th and 29th of June the Commerzbank-Arena will be transformed into a haven for Dota 2 fans from all around the world. Tickets will be released in waves, with February 28th marking the first day of public sale.
