According to ESL, VP has decided not to attend their event. Instead, the other top CIS team – Gambit Esports will fill in the spit.
Having withdrawn from #ESLOne Mumbai earlier this month we are incredibly thrilled for an opportunity to attend another ESL One event. Gambit Dota 2 will be heading to the UK to compete at ESL One Birmingham.https://t.co/4ihqQUplcA pic.twitter.com/OSnm21RYou

Virtus.Pro’s General Manager said in an official statement that “the current DPC season schedule has taken its toll and as we approach the peak of the season we need to focus on preparation for home Major and The International.” In addition, VP will also play at the Adrenaline Cyber League 2019 in Moscow. This event is also close to ESL One, which further increases the difficulty of playing there.
ESL One Birmingham starts in around one month for now. As always, it will feature some of the best teams in the world. Expect more information regarding this tournament soon. In the meantime, feel free to follow us on Twitter for the latest Dota 2 & esports news.
