Some great Dota 2 teams have accepted the invitation, and it will be exciting to see which team will come out on top.
OG is, of course, a favourite for many fans, but judging by recent results Virtus.Pro and Team Secret could easily win the tournament.
The teams won't actually win anything in the Dota 2 Gamers Without Borders tournament. Instead, they will be able to choose which COVID-19 relief charity their winnings go to.
This week, the winner of the @DOTA2 International Elite tournament will earn US$750,000 to donate to the charity of their choice to support COVID-19 relief efforts worldwide! ðŸŒâ€” Gamers Without Borders (@gwbps) May 12, 2020

All eight teams in the Dota 2 Gamers Without Borders charity tournament have been invited. The tournament features some of the top teams in the world, including the two-time TI champions, OG, as well as the likes of Team Secret, Virtus.Pro, and more.
The Dota 2 Gamers Without Borders tournament won't feature a group stage. Instead, the tournament will start with the Quarter Finals, since it only runs for two days.
This means there won't be as many matches as Dota 2 fans are used to. The tournament will take place with a single-elimination format, with all matches, including the grand final, being best-of-three.
