Team Dignitas is unable to attend IEM Sao Paulo

Sun 26th Jan 2014 - 8:38pm Category: League of Legends

Unfortunately Team Dignitas is unable to attend IEM Sao Paulo taking place on January 28-29th due to a problem with visas. We were told that our visas would arrive in time but due to the World Cup the process was significantly delayed. Today our visa agent informed us that our visas would not arrive before the event starts.

We can assure the fans that we looked into all possible alternatives to make this work but unfortunately Team Dignitas will not be able to travel to Sao Paulo this week. We are currently awaiting further instructions from ESL and we will let them announce what will happen next.

------ Portuguese Version ------

Team Dignitas não poderá estar presente no IEM São Paulo.

Infelizmente, a Team Dignitas não vai poder comparecer ao IEM São Paulo que terá lugar a 28 e 29 de janeiro devido a um problema com os vistos. Fomos informados de que os nossos vistos chegariam a tempo, no entanto, devido à Copa do Mundo, o processo atrasou-se de forma significativa. Hoje o nosso agente de vistos informou-nos que os vistos não chegariam antes do início do evento.

Podemos garantir aos fãs que nós procuramos todas as alternativas possíveis para resolver a situação, mas infelizmente a Team Dignitas não terá possibilidade de viajar para São Paulo esta semana. Por agora, estamos a aguardar mais instruções da ESL e vamos deixá-los anunciar o que vai acontecer a seguir.

    To the people saying that you don't need a visa. You may not need one to just enter. But they are entering a country to make money so they might make you have a visa since your going there technically to make bank.

    Ok, so Brazil asks for a visa only to countries that ask Brazilians for a visa when they enter their country. Seeing as the USA asks them for a visa, any citizen of the USA needs a visa to enter Brazil. @mano368 ... what? the members of the LoL team from Dignitas are all from the USA, not the UK
