DOTA 2 Major 2019

Dota 2 Major in Disneyland Paris

Voor de gamers onder is Dota 2 wellicht geen onbekende. Dota 2 is een online fantasiegame waar groepen tegen elkaar strijden en wordt ook competitief gespeeld als e-sport.

Afgelopen donderdag bracht Disneyland Paris het bericht naar buiten gevolgd door een persbericht samen met de organisator Mars Media.

Op het eerste gezicht lijkt dat niet zo bijzonder, maar dat is het wel. Het is het eerste grote e-sports evenement dat door Mars Media buiten China wordt georganiseerd en het eerste grote e-sports evenement in Frankrijk. Het evenement vindt plaats van 4 tot en met 12 mei 2019 in Disney’s New Port Bay Club en de Disney Events Arena.

Lees hieronder het officiële persbericht:

Mars Media and Disneyland® Paris to co-host the very first Dota 2 Major in France as part of the Dota Pro Circuit 2018-2019 season.

Mars Media and Disneyland Paris are proud to join forces to host the fourth Dota 2 Major of the Dota Pro Circuit 2018-2019 season, the first of its kind in France.

Starting on May 4th and finishing on May 12th, the best international Dota 2 teams will battle it out at Disney’s Newport Bay Club and Disney® Events Arena. The best performing teams in the six online regional qualifiers will compete against one another in front of a 6,300-strong crowd at Disney® Events Arena totally transformed for the occasion.

This is the first time in the history of Mars Media that their flagship event will be hosted outside of China.

A leading international sports event and stage of the official Dota Pro Circuit 2018-2019, the MDL Disneyland® Paris Major is the fourth Major of the season, and serves as a qualifier for The International Dota 2 Championships 2019 which will be held next summer at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. Each team competing at the MDL Disneyland® Paris Major will rack up points earning them a place in one of the most legendary esports tournaments on the planet.

Zhang Yu, CEO of Mars Media: We are very excited and proud to bring our own MDL to France thanks to Aymeric Magne and his team at Disneyland® Paris. We couldn’t have hoped for a better place and partner to host the very first MDL outside of China. We are looking forward to collaborating with Disneyland® Paris which marks our first, but not last, foray into the western esports market.

Aymeric Magne, Director of Disneyland® Paris Event Group says: “We are extremely proud to team up with Mars Media to co-produce a Dota 2 Major for the first time in France. Disneyland® Paris will host the best teams in the world for nine days promising our visitors a spectacular one-of-a-kind experience. This new event will further consolidate Disneyland Paris’s position as a go-to destination for live events as well as a major esports partner in Europe.”
