The International 2022 is drawing near, this year The International 2022 will be hosted in Singapore, bringing the crowning event in esports to SEA for the first time. Featuring four consecutive weekends of Dota action, and a total of 30 teams from all over the world, this will be the largest Dota event to date.

In our constant efforts to make the event and its broadcast as exciting and accessible as possible, the year Valve experimenting with a slightly different schedule that includes more breaks and a greater build to Finals. Here’s how structuring it this year for the biggest celebration of Dota 2 yet:

The Last Chance Qualifiers will run from October 8-12, followed by the Group Stage on October 15-18 — featuring 20 teams battling to make the Main Event. The qualifying teams will then battle through the Playoffs at SunTec Singapore October 20-23. The survivors will advance to the Finals at Singapore Indoor Stadium October 29-30 — where the Aegis of Champions will hang in the balance.
