The International 10 has faced many problems in its organisation due to covid 19. Originally the event was to held in Stockholm, Sweden in 2020 but due to covid 19 it was postponed a year. Then in 2021 due to covid safety protocols Sweden government didn't allow to host the event in Sweden. Therefore Valve was forced to reschedule and host the event in Bucharest, Romania on October 7th. And now again due to covid the ticket sales are canceled and there will be no crowd and fans in arena.
