Historic DC Armory to Host First Esports Tournament in DC

If you’ve never watched a professional esports competition, here is your chance to witness some of the best teams in the world go head-to-head in our own backyard!

Events DC is partnering with Moonduck Studios to host Captains Draft 4.0, the first-ever esports tournament in the historic DC Armory on January 4 - 7, 2018! To purchase tickets to the event, click here. This is a unique opportunity because this tournament is the only planned Dota 2 Minor tournament in the United States that is open to the public in 2018.  

Tickets won’t be sold for the first day – or “group stage” – of the tournament, but you can watch online through the MoonduckTV & DotaCinema broadcast channels. The DC Armory will then open to the public from January 5 - 7, with the Grand Finals on Sunday.

Unfortunately, the stretch from late October to New Year’s Day can also leave chocolate-filled, gravy-covered, and bubbly extra weight on our bodies.
