The International 2020 is heading to Stockholm

It has been announced that Stockholm, Sweden will play host to The International for 2020. The tenth edition of the Dota 2 tournament will returns to Europe for the first time since 2011.

The announcement was made just before OG and Team Liquid took the stage for the Grand Final at TI9. A video was broadcasted showing a montage of winners clips from previous tournaments throughout the years.

Anna König Jerlmyr, Mayor of Stockholm shared this message in the video:

“The International is 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 to our wonderful city. Stockholm is bursting with creativity and the passion for Dota runs deep. We are honoured to host and share in cheering on your favourite teams while paying a tribute to a decade of champions as they compete for the most prestigious trophy in esports.”

OG made history this weekend as the first-ever team to win back-to-back TI tournaments. Despite an unchanged roster, OG went into the event as a mid-tier favourite due to a dry year of tournament wins. However, OG truly stepped up their game by flying through the tournament and taking down Team Liquid in a dominate 3-1 victory in the Grand Final.

The prize pool for TI9 was officially confirmed as the biggest in esports history with a staggering $34 million up for grabs. A total of $32 million was raised by crowdfunding through the sale of the Dota 2 Battle Pass.

For their win, OG takes home 45.5% of the prize pool which is just over $15 million. Johan “N0tail” Sundstein, Anathan “ana” Pham, Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen, Sébastien “Ceb” Debs, and Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka now comfortably sit as the highest-earning players in esports history.

According to esportsearnings.com, the OG teammates total prize winnings for tournament wins so far are:

  • 1. N0tail $6,886,181.99
  • 2. JerAx $6,465,590.22
  • 3. ana $5,996,002.16
  • 4. Ceb $5,484,823.21
  • 5. Topson $5,410,036.37
