ESL One Birmingham to return in May, 2020
ESL has today announced that they will return to Birmingham during 2020 for the third iteration of ESL One Birmingham. The event has, in the past, drawn big crowds and has quickly risen on the Dota scene as one of the most exciting non-DPC events on the calendar for spectators.
Ever since its first iteration, back in 2018, it was clear that there was something special going on in Birmingham. The UK crowd does not have an abundance of Dota 2 events to attend every year and, thus, give it their all once the show comes to town. The UK crowd has made a meme out of DHL, cheering every time the logo is shown during the broadcast, and walking around town in the evening you can often hear "DHL, DHL, DHL" being chanted from various pubs in the area.
For those interested in going, the offline portion of the event will be held from May 26 to 28 at Arena Birmingham. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, January 22nd 16:00 CET / 15:00 GMT London Time via the Ticket Factory and will range in price between 39,00£ and 129,00£.
ESL did not announce any of the teams participating but based off previous years lineups, it's reasonable to assume some of the best teams in the world will be there.
