ESL One Mumbai, described by the organizer as India's first Dota 2 mega event, is scheduled to take place from April 19 to April 21.


The event will feature 12 ​Dota 2 teams competing for a $300,000 prize pool. Seven of the 12 will receive direct invitations to the event. The remaining five will earn their places at the tournament through qualifiers in Europe, North America, China, Southeast Asia and India.

ESL One Mumbai's top eight will take place in the NSCI Dome, one of India's first major esports stadiums. Tickets are now available for purchase starting at $7 for single day tickets. Prices range as high as $35 for an all-weekend pass including exclusive signings and an event t-shirt.


ESL's event follows DreamHack's expansion into Mumbai for Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments that ​took place in December. Mineski claimed the Dota 2 tournament and its $34,816.
