We know everyone can't make it to Benaroya Hall to see The International live, so we have the next best thing — local events in your area. There you can cheer on your favorite teams with friends and other Dota 2 fans. Don't worry about missing any tournament items, just like in Benaroya Hall, if you register and attend an event you will still be tracked for tournament items.

How does it work?

If you want to attend an event, it's simple. Just find an event in your area, sign-up with your Steam account, and show up. If there aren't currently any events in your area, check back often as more are being added all the time.

If you run an event or want to start an event in your area, you will want to visit our event registration page. There you will need to use your Steam account to register your event; include your location, venue name, and plenty of details (ie food available, etc).

During The International, we'll post pictures from the various venues and see who can have the largest satellite event!
