  • During the final day of The International 9, Anna Konig Jerlmyr announced the new location of the 2020 TI event, which will be held in Stockholm, Sweden. Here are the details.

The International 2020 – Stockholm, Sweden

The International 2020 will return to Europe for the first time since 2011 when the very first International tournament was held in Cologne, Germany. The event will be held at the Ericsson Globe, formerly known as Stockholm Globe Arena. The Ericsson Globe is an indoor arena and the largest hemispherical building on Earth. It has a seating capacity of 16,000 spectators which is more than many NHL and NBA sports arenas.

The news was announced by Anna Konig Jerlmyr, who is the current mayor of Stockholm. Traditionally, the next city to host the biggest esports event on the planet gets revealed during the last day of the major tournament. There is no prize pool or date mentioned since the prize pool is dependant on many variables (ex: Compendium).

Here’s the clip of Anna giving the announcement during the final day of TI9:

“The International is a celebration. A celebration of the enormous power of professional Dota, and of the community that has taken part in the journey from the very first International, to the one we are watching today. Next year, Stockholm is excited to host this global celebration by welcoming the 10th International Dota 2 championship to our wonderful city, and Stockholm is bursting os creativity and the passion for Dota runs deep. And we are honored to host the world in cheering on your favorite teams while paying a tribute to a decade of champions as they compete for the most prestigious trophy in all of esports.”
