In the break between the lower bracket finals and the grand finals of The International 2019, Valve popped a big announcement. The International 2020, the tenth iteration of the most important Dota 2 tournament, is headed to Stockholm, Sweden.

Stockholm Mayor Anna König Jerlmyr welcomed the Dota 2 community in the announcement. The video featured the Ericsson Globe, a 16,000 capacity arena shaped like a large white ball.

Stockholm was the host of one of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit Majors this year: the DreamLeague Season 11 Major.

TI10 should be a celebration of a decade of amazing competition. The venue is just the first piece of information regarding The International 2020. When Dota 2 Pro Circuit season 3 information is released, we’ll know the path for players to make it to the event. Additional details for fans interested in attending should come early in 2020.

This announcement joins the other key Valve announcements this tournament regarding two new heroes, Snapfire and Void Spirit.
