Alliance is the second team to be confirmed for ESL One Mumbai 2019 slated for April. 

Alliance's run at ESL One Katowice 2019 may already be over, but they are already setting their sights on the next ESL One event. 

The boys in green were among the first to be eliminated in the group stage causing fans to question the decision for the team to be invited. 

In addition, Alliance was already set to be competing in the EU/CIS closed qualifiers for ESL One Mumbai 2019 set to start in just five days. Instead, the Swedish organization will be joining Ninjas in Pyjamas in the main event. 

So far there is no word on who will replace Alliance in the qualifiers. Only four teams will lock horns for the one allocated spot split between EU and CIS regions. Currently, Na'Vi, Gambit Esports and Elements Pro Gaming are listed to compete. 

Twelve teams will be competing for a slice of the $300,000 prize pool April 19-21st. There will be seven directly invited teams and five qualified teams from NA, EU/CIS, China, SEA, and India.

Qualifiers will begin at the end of February and continue into early March. 

Tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai will go on sale in just two days HERE. Age restriction is a minimum of 12 years old or accompanied by an adult. 

So far in the 2018-2019 Dota 2 season since The International 8, ESL has already taken Hamburg by storm, is getting ready to unleash the Dota 2 hype upon Katowice in the upcoming week and has announced plans for Birmingham in May.
