Merely days before ESL's first LAN event of the new season, ESL One Katowice 2019 has been announced for February 2019.
Last year ESL brought Dota 2 to Poland for the first time and was as well received and executed as was to be expected. Virtus.pro took home the trophy - their second of three to be claimed that year.
This year, from February 19-24th, 12 of the world’s best Dota 2 teams will compete at the Spodek Arena with a $300,000 prize pool. Once again, the ESL tournament will not be part of the DPC events for the new season.
Eight teams will receive direct invitations to the group stage while the remaining four spots will be up for grabs through regional open qualifiers in Europe, North America, China and Southeast Asia.
The group stage is set to take place from February 19-21, followed by the main event in the Spodek Arena from February 22-24.
