Dota 2 fans in Singapore rejoice! If you’ve missed your chance to attend ONE Esports World Pro Invitational held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, there’s going to be an even bigger party coming in 2020.
Arriving on local shores following a preceding event in Tokyo held in October, ONE Esports is moving digital sportsmanship forward.
In spite of their currently ongoing World Pro Invitational, ONE has already set their sights on the future. The Singapore-based sports organisation announced that the final Major of the Dota Pro Circuit season will once again be held in Singapore.
ONE Esports is certainly not pulling any punches when it comes to investing in Singapore’s burgeoning esports scene. This will mark two world-class Dota 2 tournaments just six months apart from each other.
While Singapore has previously played host to esports events such as the PvP Esports Championship, an official Valve Major is a much bigger deal. With Valve expanding Dota 2’s flagship tournament The International to other cities, the dream of a Southeast Asian International comes closer with every new tournament held in the region.
Fans can look forward to top-tier teams descending upon the Lion City. An increased investment in esports could potentially provide ripple effects on Singapore’s small but talented scene, inspiring more people to pursue esports as a viable career path.
The Majors are key milestones in the global esports tournament calendar, and we are pleased to host the Singapore Major next June.
This will not only profile Singapore as a destination of choice, but augment our ambition to develop Singapore as a premier tourism and esports hub.
The Singapore Major will not only host some of the biggest teams in the world, but will offer $1 million in prize pool and possibly determine the final teams to attend The International 2020.
