ESL One Birmingham 2024 is a two-stage Dota 2 tournament. The 12 qualified teams will battle in two round-robin groups of six, with each match a best-of-two. Following the group stage’s conclusion (and any tiebreakers, if needed), the top two teams per group will begin the playoffs in the upper bracket. The next two begin in the lower bracket, while the final two are eliminated.

From there, the remaining eight teams finish the event in a double-elimination playoff bracket, with each match a best-of-three. The grand final is a best-of-five, with the champs walking away with a cool $300,000 USD and 6,400 EPT points.

ESL One Birmingham, as well as the next season of DreamLeague, are the final two events where teams can earn points before invites to the Esports World Cup in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, are distributed.
