The 2022 International 

This year, the tournament will take place in Singapore from 8 to 30 October. For the first time, the tournament will be played in two stadiums. The main part of the tournament is divided into 2 stages: group stage and playoffs. The dates for the group stage are 15-18 October. 20 teams will participate in the group stage.

The play-off matches will be played from 20-23 October, while the final stage will be held on 29-30 October at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

History of the International

The International tournaments have been held every year since 2011 and represent the prestigious event in Dota 2. Winning The International is the ultimate achievement for teams and players from all over the world. The prize pool of the first tournament was $1.6 million and grows every year with the prize pool exceeding $40 million in 2021.

Since 2013, part of the prize pool has been generated through crowdfunding (before the tournament, regular players are given the opportunity to buy into the in-game shop for certain bonuses. Part of the proceeds from those sales goes to replenish the tournament prize pool).
