In an interview with one of the portals, Gabe told about the possibility of holding The International in New Zealand. At the time of the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Newell was there and plans to stay alive in the future.

The epidemic situation in the United States is not improving much, and therefore many Valve employees are ready to move to New Zealand

Regarding the e-sports component, Gabe Newell noted that it is very possible to hold a Major in CS:GO or The International in Dota 2 in New Zealand and everything goes to this, because the situation with the coronavirus does not change much.

On January 14, we announced the announcement of the new CS:GO Major, which is to take place in the fall of 2021, and the venue will be Stockholm, Sweden. No details on The International 10 yet.
