A major Dota 2 tournament is coming real soon, and this time around it will be an in-person event (not a virtual tournament).
The Singapore Major, hosted by ONE Esports (subsidiary of ONE Championship), is expected to take place from 27th March to 4th April 2021, and will be the first major event of the 2021 Dota 2 Pro circuit.
This time around, the Singapore Major will spot a total prize pool of $500,000, with $200,000 going to the winning team.
The tournament is also expected to boost tourism to Singapore, especially with travel restrictions loosening in recent months.
14 teams participating in this year’s tournament have also been revealed, among some of them are Fnatic, Neon Esports, and T1.
There are also 4 teams from China who will be competing in the tournament, which will be announced mid-March.
