ESL announced the next installment of ESL One Katowice on Thursday, scheduling the event for Feb. 19–24.


The ​Dota 2 tournament will feature 12 teams battling it out in the Spodek Arena for a cut of a $300,000 prize pool and the trophy from one of the most high profile events of the year. ESL has yet to announce the teams expected to attend the event.

Single day passes will cost fans 60 PLZ, or roughly $16, while passes for the full weekend begin at 150 PLZ, or around $40. Also available are premium passes that offer floor seating, access to signing sessions, and free soft drinks.


Ticket prices cap out at 5000 PLZ, a cool $1,331, for an offer cheekily referred to as God Mode. It includes a premium pass for all three days, plus access to a VIP area with catering, a hotel room at the Courtyard by Mariott Katowice and seating at the player walk-in area.


​Last year's ESL One Katowice saw Virtus.pro take home the trophy in a 3-1 victory over ViCi Gaming.


The next ESL One event scheduled to take place is Hamburg, set to begin Tuesday. Groups for that tournament were ​drawn last Tuesday.
