The Bali Major, known for its prestige and allure, came with a hefty price tag. Standard tickets were available for $388, while premium tickets carried a price of $888. Despite the steep prices, the passion and excitement surrounding the event far outweighed any concerns about affordability.

The ticket prices drew immediate comparisons within the community, particularly to past tournaments in Southeast Asia.

One of the most notable comparisons made was with The International 11, which recently took place in Singapore and was renowned for its expensive ticket prices.

Fans also reminisced about the memorable Manila Major, where tickets were priced at a mere PH₱200, equivalent to approximately $3.60.

The Bali Major is scheduled to run from June 29 to July 9, with the highly anticipated finals weekend set to take place at the breathtaking Champa Garden, Ayana Estate, from July 7 to 9.

As the final Major of the 2023 Dota Pro Circuit, teams from around the world are vying for the opportunity to compete in Indonesia, earn valuable points, and secure a direct invitation to The International 12. The grand finale of the Dota 2 competitive season is slated to occur in October in Seattle.
