Dota 2’s The International 2024 – Location, dates, tickets, invites, and more

The world's best converge on a new location in 2024.

Dota 2’s The International is the pinnacle of competitive Dota and is more than just a big tournament—it’s a celebration of the great game we all know and love as is as much about community as it is about the pros battling for the Aegis of Champions.

Whatever it means at its heart, the best in Dota 2 will compete for major cash prizes and the title of champion, and after years in its ancestral home of Seattle, the Aegis has spanned many countries and continents since. 2024’s edition is no different, with 16 teams converging on a new battleground for a shot at the title.

Where will TI 2024 be held?

2024’s edition of The International will take place in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark. It marks the first time TI has taken place in Europe since 2021 when the event was held behind closed doors in Bucharest, Romania.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no live audience could attend TI 2021, meaning this is the first version of TI to feature a live European crowd since the tournament’s debut way back in 2011 in Cologne, Germany.

The Royal Arena has a capacity of 16,000 and has played host to a myriad of esports tournaments outside of Dota, including many iterations of BLAST Counter-Strike events and even this year’s PGL Copenhagen Major.

When will TI 2024 take place?

TI 2024 will begin on September 4, 2024, according to a March 8 blog post from Valve. Below you’ll find the dates for each main section of the tournament and its qualification process:

  • Regional qualifiers open bracket: June 3 to 8
  • Regional qualifier closed bracket: Following the Open Bracket
  • The Road to the International (TI group stage): September 4 to 8
  • The Road to the International (TI playoffs): September 10 to 12
  • The International (TI top eight playoffs): September 13 to 15

This means teams had just six months from the start of the season until the big show and since the DPC has concluded, determining invites was done at Valve’s discretion much like in TI’s long past. Valve said there was plenty of Dota between then and when invites would be issued, meaning the opportunity still existed for teams to confirm their spots at TI.

Aside from direct invites (made at Valve’s discretion), Dota 2 teams can qualify for TI 2024 via regional qualifiers. Valve said teams will be considered for invitations based on their performance throughout 2024, with events spanning many teams and multiple regions considered of higher value.

Invitations and qualifier teams were announced on May 27 following the conclusion of DreamLeague Season 23, the penultimate event in the ESL Pro Tour calendar before the Riyadh Masters in June. Six teams were given direct invites to TI 2024, while the team lists for regional qualifiers were also revealed.

TI 2024 will have 16 participants in total, down from 20 (the last two years) and 18 (the four years before that), which means it is likely that fewer than the standard 12 invites will be handed out. Again, it’s hard to say where Valve goes in regards to format or qualifiers, so check back as we approach the event for more details.
