How to Order Dota 2 Merchandise from the TI11 Secret Shop
With only four teams remaining for the 2022 International Finals weekend (TI11), the venue is expected to change from SunTec Singapore to the Singapore Indoor Stadium. However, despite the location change, Valve’s annual Secret Shop will be available throughout the weekend for on-site and online purchases. For those unfamiliar with The International (TI) Secret Shop, it is a store where Dota 2 fans can purchase TI merchandise as well as official Dota 2 apparel.
However, this year there are two main methods for Dota 2 fans to purchase said merchandise.
The on-site secret shop will be available during the weekend of the finals
For those wishing to purchase Dota 2 merchandise during Finals Weekend Live at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the Secret Shop is available on-site at the venue. However, attendees will need to order their items online as the store does not allow on-site purchase of items that primarily comply with Singapore’s COVID-19 regulations.
However, attendees can purchase their items online and pick up their purchased items on site after placing their order. Attendees must have an event badge in order to enable on-site pickup as this allows them to identify the buyer accordingly. The exact location and more details about the store during the TI11 Finals will be revealed before the weekend.
People attending the event can purchase their items from the eClubStore website and pick up their items themselves at the event.
For Dota 2 fans watching the event online this year, Valve has teamed up with several retail partners to make new Dota 2 merchandise available in all regions.
For China, Valve has partnered with Taobao for its own online version of the Secret Shop this year to allow Chinese fans to purchase items online. The website can be found here.
For other regions, Valve has partnered with We Are Nations as an official online merchandise partner. Additionally, the site offers products that are not otherwise available to the secret shop on site, such as the Ogre Magi line of products and more.

While these are the two official sources for purchasing Dota 2 merchandise, some teams also sell their own team merchandise across Singapore, such as BOOM Esports and Alliance, from pop-up stores in Funan Mall.
