The International

22nd February 2018

Valve’s yearly million dollar DotA 2 tournament, The International 2014, will take place in mid-July for the first time, officials from several gaming teams and leagues told GameSpot sister site onGamers today.

Sources say that although the exact dates has not yet been finalized, the event will move away from its former home at Benaroya Hall for a larger venue. Gabe Newell confirmed during a Reddit AMA today that the event will be held in Seattle’s Key Arena. It has a capacity of just over 17,000 for basketball games, and 15,000 for high-end concerts, according to the arena’s official website.
