[EN] The International 2019 Group Stage Multicast - Dota 2 Championship Live Stream
The International 2019 (TI9) is the upcoming ninth iteration of The International, an annual Dota 2 world championship esports tournament. Hosted by Valve Corporation, the game's developer, the tournament will begin in August 2019 with the group stage, and conclude following the main event at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.
The tournament followed a year-long series of awarding qualifying points, known as the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), with the top 12 ranking teams being directly invited to the tournament. In addition, six more teams earned invites through regional qualifiers played in July 2019. As with every International from 2013 onwards, the prize pool is being crowdfunded by the Dota 2 community via its battle pass feature, with the total currently at over US$32 million, making it the largest for any single esports tournament in history.#ti9 #theinternational #livestreamChannel: Dota 2 TV Live
