Do you want to visit Brazil? Stupid question, who doesn’t want to see this breathtakingly beautiful country? Riot Games announced this year’s MSI will be held in Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, which means you have an additional reason to find out why Brazil is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Tickets for MSI 2017 are already released and waiting for your purchase. We bring you ticket info below.
MSI 2017 Tickets
Riot Games released tickets for MSI 2017 along with basic information that non-Brazilians should bear in mind before they make the purchase. Due to local regulations, you need a passport to buy and pick up your tickets. This means that if you don’t have a passport or it’s not valid anymore, you won’t be able to make the purchase.
Tickets for non-Brazilians are available, exclusively, on EventBrite starting March 27, 2017, until April 3, 9 AM PT.
The prices are relatively affordable, considering you’ll have to travel all the way to Brazil. They are:
- Play-in stage at the CBLOL Studio in Sao Paolo – R$80 (about $25.55)
- Group stage in Rio de Janeiro – R$80
- Knockout stage in Rio de Janeiro – R$100 (about $31.94)
- Final – R$140 (about $44.71)
Bear in mind that additional fees apply.
It is recommended to use the website’s translation feature if you’re purchasing your tickets from a non-English speaking country.
MSI tickets FAQ
Do I need to set up an EventBrite account to purchase my ticket?
Yes, in order to make your purchase, you have to sign up, which is free anyway. That takes less than two minutes.
What about taxes and fees?
As mentioned above, you’ll need to pay additional fees but the cost varies on an individual buyer, so you’ll have to check it out for yourself by visiting the EventBrite website. You may also need to pay some taxes, but that depends on your location.
What information I have to submit to buy tickets?
Since MSI is in Brazil, which requires traveling and visiting a different country, you’ll need to submit more info than you usually do when buying tickets. In accordance with local regulations, you’ll need to supply your full name, email address, billing address, credit card information, nationality, and passport number.
When is the right time to buy tickets?
Due to high interest in MSI and a limited amount of tickets released, the sooner you buy them, the better.
How many tickets can I buy?
You can buy up to 4 tickets.
- Play-in stage: round 1 (April 28 – May 1), round 2 (May 3-4), round 3 (May 6)
- Group stage: May 10-14
- Knockout stage: May 19-20
- Finals: May 21
During Play-in stage, the doors will open at a 1PM local time, while in group and knockout stage the doors open at 12 PM. Bear in mind that you can’t bring your food and drinks to MSI 2017 venues. The same applies to professional photography and filming equipment.
Bearing in mind that Riot Games introduced some changes to increase competitiveness and quality of its tournaments, including MSI, we can expect great battles, a lot of action, and overall an exciting competition. The tickets are already released and if you plan to go, then make a purchase as soon as possible before they are sold out. It’s not certain whether Riot Games will release more tickets and even if they do, it would be a highly limited amount. Good luck.
