Schedule for The International 5 Released

by on July 20, 2015

Over the weekend Valve finally released the schedule for The International 5.

The event kicks off next Sunday (July 26) with the Wildcard tournament where four teams will compete in a double elimination bracket to try and claim one of two remaining spots in the group stage.

The group stage itself kicks off the day after (Monday July 27) and runs through until Thursday 30 July where teams will be split into two groups of eight and each team must play every team in their group in a best of two. At the end of the group stage the top four from each group head to the upper bracket of the main event while the other four from each group will be in the lower bracket.

The main event at the Key Arena runs from August 3 through to August 8 when the grand finals will be taking place (along with the lower bracket final). The coverage on the final day starts around 6PM UK time meaning the grand final will probably start around 9.
