ESL One Frankfurt 2016 – DOTA 2 Cosplay Photo Gallery
By PDG Staff
Last month for the third year running, ESL One successfully took over the 2006 Germany World Cup football stadium in Frankfurt with its festival offering: 22,500 attendees attended ESL One Frankfurt over that weekend, with a further 7.3 million tuning in online. Festival elements kept visitors entertained in between matches, whilst those watching from home were catered to with tailored broadcasts on television (Sport1, MTG’s ESportsTV, Nova Sport Bulgaria and Globo), numerous streaming websites and social media platforms.
The Dota 2 cosplay competition hosted at ESL One Frankfurt was Europe’s largest: 34 cosplayers took part, putting in an estimated combined total of over 10,500 hours work into their costume preparation. Winning competitors judged their construction times to be between 450-500 hours, marking monumental effort that was showcased around the stadium and on all major broadcasts.
