Paris Disneyland to Host Dota 2 Major in 2019
The upcoming Dota 2 Majors are still searching for their venues, but all indications are pointing towards Disneyland Paris as the host for a major event in 2019.
According to Esports Insider, the May or June Major for the DPC season will be held at the Disneyland park in Paris.
Disney and Esports
Esports Insider discovered a listing for an advertising job that indicated Disney’s involvement in sales for various esports events, including the League of Legends European Championship and the unannounced Dota 2 Major. This aligns with Disney’s recent foray into esports, as the company has started broadcasting events like the Overwatch League and EVO on Disney XD.
This event will be a partnership with Mars Media, who will also be hosting their own event, MDL Macau 2019, on Feb. 20.
The Largest Dota 2 Tournament in Paris
The Dota 2 Major in Paris would be the biggest tournament of its kind in the city. The exact dates are yet to be confirmed, but it is believed to either take place from May 2 to 12 or fill the final Major slot in June.
Prize Pool and Points
Like all other Major events, the Paris Major will feature a prize pool of $1 million and 15,000 pro circuit points.
In the meantime, the next DPC event is the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor, which will run from March 7 to 10 and determine the final roster spot for the upcoming DreamLeague Season 11 Stockholm Major.
