The TI9 prize pool is the largest prize in all of esports history and still has several weeks to grow larger. 

$30 million strong. And there are no signs that the crowdfunding for the TI9 prize pool is slowing down. With several weeks still to go, there is no telling where the final amount will land. 

With the prize pool starting at $1,600,000 crowdfunding has surpassed all previous expectations, bringing the total reward to a whopping $30,008,732 ($28,408,732 added) with several weeks still to go until the big event. There are 35 Days and 22 hours left at the time of this writing until crowdfunding for The International 2019 ends.

Only 25% of the sales contribute to the prize pool meaning that $113,634,928 has already been spent in purchases by fans across the globe.

Last year, The International prize pool reached $25,532,177 ($23,932,177 added).

The TI9 prize pool tracker provides real-time hourly and daily comparison graphs. This year’s prize has gradually grown at a faster pace than last year’s fund.
