In-Person Attendance For Audiences Canceled For The International 10

Valve recently revealed that in-person audience attendance for The International 2021 has been canceled. This announcement came in a blog post from the company that was released on October 2nd.

All ticket sales for the event have been canceled. This means that only teams, talent, and essential staff members will be at the event in person.

“We have been carefully evaluating the continued rise of Covid rates in Romania, as well as the resulting introduction of new local restrictions in Bucharest,” Valve said in a blog post. “To ensure the safety of all players, talent, and production staff participating in the event, we have decided to refund all ticket sales for The International 2021. We wanted nothing more than to welcome fans live to the event, but we can no longer do so in a way that allows us to prioritize the health and well-being of both audience members and participants. Those who purchased tickets will be issued a full refund automatically.”

This announcement was made one day after members of Team Aster and Invictus Gaming tested positive for COVID-19. According to Dot Esports, all 10 members of Team Aster reportedly contracted the disease.
