The International 11 tickets went on sale on 13 August 2022, and unsurprisingly, they were scalped. Officially, you could get tickets for SGD$88 per playoffs day, while Finals weekend would be SGD$498 for both days, without including any additional booking fees. There is a hard limit of 5 tickets per event.
On Ticketmaster.sg, fans would have gotten a queue number assigned at random prior to the ticket sales going live. Once through, you could try selecting the event you wished to get tickets for, then attempt to purchase them. There were plenty of issues with the ticketing, least of all actually trying to get the selection to show up to begin with.
Keep checking regularly. When someone in the queue does not book their tickets, those tickets get released back. So you may get lucky. #TI11 #Dota2 pic.twitter.com/kBu7v8hDto

So, where did those tickets go? A number of them have popped up on Carousell.sg, at naturally inflated prices. You can find listings for tickets at at least double the original asking price. This is in spite of Ticketmaster’s policy of “The resale of ticket(s) at the same or any price in excess of the initial purchase price is prohibited.”
The official Dota 2 blog had stated tickets for The International 11 would only be sold in a single wave, so you were either lucky enough to get yours, or you’d have to get scalped ones. It’s unfortunate that apparent measures in place were not enough to dissuade scalping, with fans missing out on what is considered to be an already very expensive event.
