Dota 2: ESL One Birmingham Moves Online, Open Qualifiers Start May 8

Here is the latest news about ESL One Birmingham.


Unfortunately, another incredible LAN event that was scheduled for this month will be held online. ESL One Birmingham was one of the best ESL One events last year. It gathered a huge audience both online and in the Arena Birmingham.

Although we really wanted to see it again in person, we will sadly have to wait for next year. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers decided to host it in an online format. Despite that, there will still be a jaw-dropping prize pool of $335K USD. However, this prize pool will be distributed among all regions in the following order:

  • CIS & EU - $200K
  • Southeast Asia - $40K
  • China - $50K
  • North America - $40K

In just two days from now (May 8), we will see the beginning of the Open Qualifiers. Even though this is a big tournament, everyone can sign up for these qualifiers for free. However, there is one important thing that you need to know - teams from South America won’t be able to take part in this tournament.

Only the top two teams from these regional open quals will be able to take part in the closed qualifiers. They will begin just a few days after that, starting on May 12. Don’t forget to follow us if you’re interested in finding out more about this tournament.

In the meantime, we are slowly but steadily reaching the final few days of WePlay!’s Pushka League. Pretty much every series there is a joy to watch, so definitely don’t miss out on it.
