A few days ago ESL officially announced the location for one of the last Dota 2 majors before TI8. The event will take place in Birmingham, England, from May 23rd to 27th. This will be the first major Dota 2 tournament taking place in the UK and will feature 12 teams competing for the $1,000,000 prize pool, as well as 1,500 DPC points. The event will have a two-day group stage, May 23rd to 24th, and three days, May 25th to 27th, in Arena Birmingham.

A total of 6 teams will be invited (not yet announced) and 6 teams will qualify through regional qualifiers. This means that each region will have one qualifier spot for the event. The open qualifiers for Birmingham will take place between the 14th and 15th of April while the final, closed qualifier, will be held between the 19th and 22nd of April.

According to ESL, ticket sales for ESL One Birmingham were so impressive that it became the fastest selling Dota 2 event they have ever organized. ESL posted today on Twitter explaining that the final set of additional tickets would go on sale this Thursday at 11 am GMT.

This event will be ESL's third, and final, major on the DPC this season and will surely feature some of the best Dota as this will be the last opportunity for teams to secure their spot at TI8.
