Video game tournament leaves Seattle for Vancouver

For the first time ever, the International Dota 2 Championships will be held in Canada.

Rogers Arena in Vancouver will be hosting the event from August 20-25. It’ll be the fifth year for the tourney after six years at Key Arena in Seattle. It initially started in 2011 in Germany. 

Last year’s event offered close to $25 million in prize money for players. 

Tickets for the 2018 event range from $125 to $250 and go on sale on Friday.
