Dota 2 The International (TI)

Upcoming Dota 2 TI10 competition will have $40 million prize pool

The International 10 (TI10), the largest yearly tournament organized by Dota 2’s developer, Valve, will be taking place in August 2021.

This time around, the tournament will spot a record-setting $40 million prize pool.

Key Highlights

  • Dota 2’s TI10 tournament will be held in August 2021
  • TI10’s Group stage will take place from 5th – 8th August, and main event from 10th – 15th August.
  • This time around, TI10’s prize pool will be a total of $40,018,195 — the highest ever in the game’s history.
  • The first ever Dota 2 TI tournament kicked off back in 2011.
  • Valve also introduced Dota 2 Supporters Clubs — a new way to support pro teams that will be implemented for the upcoming TI10 too.

Why It Matters

  • Dota 2 has come a long way since its official launch back in 2013, making it one of the most popular MOBA games on PC.
  • TI10 was supposed to take place last year (2020), but it was postponed due to the global pandemic.
  • TI10 could potentially revolutionize the way fans support pro teams, as people across the globe are unable to attend the tournament in-person.
