Dota 2 amateurs who want to pursue a professional career can start now to grind their way into the FACEIT Pro League where they can play with and against pro players in both European and American regions.

FACEIT Pro League, in short FPL, is an in house, closed league developed by pro players and hosted by FACEIT, where currently only the pro players can play based on an admin invitation. Starting with the 1st of October FACEIT will run an FPL Circuit for the entire Dota 2 community. The FPL Circuit will be played as in house league as well, and at end of each "season", the top players will qualify to higher Skill Divisions, up to the FPL itself. The FPL Circuit access is subscription based ($5.99 / month) and you can subscribe on the  FPL Circuit Organizer page. The subscription will allow you to play in exactly the same environment as the FPL players, including solo only queue and the captain pick system in an environment closely moderated full-time (24/7 dedicated admin support) by FACEIT admins.

FPL is a great place for the best players to practice without the worries of people ruining games. It’s a nice environment for myself and others to hone our skills and have fun playing with other serious competitors. - Peter 'ppd' Dager
