Red Bull Battle Grounds



Dota 2 is continuously developing, professional matches gaining larger audiences. The substantial growth of the game's popularity is attracting new sponsors that are ready to expand into new areas. The energy drinks producer Red Bull is a great example of the new coming sponsors. The company is organizing a large tournament Red Bull Battle Grounds for all the fans with a prize pool of 75 000 $.


The format of the championship is quite unusual and gains much interest. Red Bull Battle Grounds will be held in three stages: group stage, play off and LAN-final. 20 teams, divided into 5 regions (Europe, the CIS, China, America and South-East Asia) will participate in the group stage. Only the best teams of each region will survive the hard battle held in double elimination format and pass to the next stage.


These teams will go to Red Bull studio located in Santa-Monica (California) to enter the battle of the second stage. Information about the format of the play off stage is kept in secret. Of 5 teams, only two will win the right to participate in the LAN-final that will be held in Warfield theatre (San-Francisco).

Therefore the finalists of the tournament will have a very nice trip over the beautiful cities of the US. It will be quite useful on the eve of The International 5. Be sure that every team will put much effort to gain such opportunity. The qualifiers promise to be spectacular!
