Lima Major - First DOTA major of this year
DOTA 2 Lima Major is going to be the first major happening in South America, and also the first DOTA 2 Major for this year. Recently, Peru’s government declared a state of emergency in the region of Lima due to the political protests in the place which led to the death of 42 people.
This got fans who were planning on visiting Peru for the first DOTA Major 2023 worried. However, with how things are going, it seems that all the tickets will get sold, despite the political issues, and panic among the people.
4D Esports, the organizer of Lima Major, told in a statement to a media house, that there is no reason for the state of emergency to affect the DOTA 2 Major in the country. Furthermore, Alejandro Moral, regional director at Beastcoast, also said in a statement, that there is not much to worry about for those who are coming to Lima. According to him, everything is working fine, and nothing is closed. He even added saying that Lima is very safe right now, and the fans are most welcome. He also said that nothing is going to happen at the Major.
Ticket sales of this year’s first DOTA 2 Major - Lima Major
There has been an exceptional amount of demand for the Lima Major DOTA 2 tickets right from the start. From what we have got to know, during the first batch of ticket sales, which happened on January 13, there were more than 20,000 people queued for purchasing the tickets.
However, in each batch of ticket sales, there are only around 3000 tickets for sale. And, the seating capacity of the venue, Arena 1, is just 15,000 seats. The second batch of sales happened yesterday, January 18, and this time around the demand was even higher with 32,000 people queued up for purchasing the tickets.
For those, who were unable to get the tickets, fear not, there will be still two more batches of ticket sales. And, in the final one, all the leftover tickets will be available for purchase. However, given the demand for these tickets, and also the clarification from Beastcoast’s regional director, and the organizer of the event, 4D Esports, it does not seem that most will be able to get the tickets.
The political protests in Lima resulted in the declaration of a state of emergency in the region by the Peru government. However, it seems that this would not be affecting the DOTA 2 Lima Major, and the ticket sales do show that.
