Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

The first Dota 2 Major in a year and of the new season will be held in Singapore. 

After waiting 14 months, Dota 2 fans are going to finally get a Major event again. Scheduled to be held March 25th – April 4th, the big event will take place in Singapore, hosted by PGL and in partnership with ONE Esports and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).

All 18 teams that have qualified will be onsite. There is no word yet as to if any spectators will be able to attend, however, the broadcast will be in 4K resolution.

We are pleased to come back to Singapore for another great tournament after the Dota 2 Singapore Invitational 2019. PGL is honored to present the first Major of Winter 21 DPC, which will occur in one of the safest places possible - Singapore. After running The Manila Major and The Kuala Lumpur Major, we are now returning with another memorable event in Southeast Asia. We are committed to this region with a strategic partnership with Singapore’s primary trade association for esports; the Singapore Games Association (SGGA), and we are more than happy to run great events for SEA and Dota 2 over and over again

 - Silviu Stroie, CEO PGL
