Alliance will be in attendance at ESL One Birmingham 2019 as the GG.Bet Birmingham Invitational winners. 

Alliance is the final team added to the lineup for ESL One Birmingham 2019 after they bested Old but Gold 3:1 in the Grand Finals of the qualifying event. 

After losing the first match to Old but Gold, Alliance pulled things together with a reverse sweep to claim the series victory. The last game was a walk in the park for the team, finishing in just 23 minutes with an overwhelming lead and advantage. 

Alliance pulled out of their participation at ESL One Mumbai 2019 after they clinched the spot at OGA Dota PIT Minor. Unfortunately for the team and fans, the events are taking place back to back and the Minor has taken a high priority for the team to gain DPC points and a potential invite to TI9.

Omar 'Madara' Dabachach has been filling in and will continue to do so, for Michael  'miCKe' Nguyen as he continues his recovery. At this time Madara's presence in the team will be extended for longer than the initial one-month bout that was expected. Madara will continue to play through ESL One Birmingham 2019 most likely. 

TeamLiquidEvil GeniusesTeam SecretPSG.LGDOGViCi GamingVirtus.pro, and NiP were directly invited while TNC Predator and Keen Gaming have already qualified.
