Tundra Esports qualify for The International 2024 as full teams list is confirmed

The International 2024

London-headquartered organisation Tundra Esports have qualified for The International 2024 via the Western Europe Closed Qualifier.

They beat PSG Quest 2-1 in the lower bracket final yesterday to book their place in the premier Dota 2 esports tournament.

Tundra had almost won the upper bracket, but were defeated by Entity 2-1 and knocked in the lower bracket final.

This means both Tundra and Entity have qualified through the Western Europe Closed Qualifier.

Topias ‘Topson’ Taavitsainen, whom Tundra topped up their team with in time for TI Twelve last year, said:

Topson said after qualifying: “I think right now everything is going pretty well in our team, everyone is playing well and it’s chill, it’s a nice work environment.”

Coach David ‘MoonMeander’ Tan added: “Made it to another TI this year. Grateful for everything, special shoutout to my supportive wife Steena for always being there! See you guys in Denmark!”

Other teams who missed out in this Western Europe qualifier include Team Secret, Mouz, Navi and OG, who have UK player Ari and recently competed at ESL One Birmingham 2024.

OG said on their Twitter account it was ‘heartbreaking’ not to make it to The International this year.

Tundra Esports are one of 16 teams that have qualified for The International 2024, which will take place at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena from September 4th to 15th.

Six teams were invited and ten made it through various qualifiers around the world – you can see the full list below.

A few invited teams, while based elsewhere, also have UK operations. For example, Gaimin Gladiators, which is registered in Canada and Portugal, and Team Falcons, based in Saudi Arabia, have some UK operations.

Tundra Esports famously won The International 2022, but had a tougher time in 2023, having been knocked out in round one of the lower bracket to Entity.
