Dota 2 Singapore Major: How to watch, schedule, teams, format and more

Everything Dota 2 esports fans need to know about the Singapore Major, including the schedule, how to watch all the action, teams, format and prize pool.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we haven't seen a Dota 2 Major take place, nor did The International take place in 2020. At the end of March 2021, we will finally see the first Dota 2 Singapore Major take place.

The Singapore Major, from One Esports and presented by PGL, is the final tournament of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021 Season 1. Here's everything you need to know about the Dota 2 Singapore Major, from how to watch the action, to the full schedule, the prize pool all the teams will be fighting for and the format.

Singapore Major prize pool

There's a prize pool of 500,000 USD up for grabs at the Singapore Major, as well as 2,700 DPC points to get teams closer to qualifying for The International 10.

The prize pool distribution is:

  • 1st place - $200,000
  • 2nd place - $100,000
  • 3rd place - $75,000
  • 4th place - $50,000
  • 5th & 6th place - $25,000
  • 7th & 8th place - $12,500

18 teams will compete for a shot at a piece of the huge prize pool, which should make the Dota 2 Singapore Major an extremely exciting tournament to watch.

Singapore Major format & schedule

The Dota 2 Singapore Major is scheduled to begin this Saturday, 27the March with the Wild Card stage. The tournament will end on 4th April 2021 with the Grand Finals. Each day, the action will kick off at 02:00 GMT.

The Singapore Major schedule:

  • Wild Card - 27 to 28 March 2021
  • Group Stage - 29 to 30 March 2021
  • Playoffs - 31 March to 4 April 2021

Not all teams will even make it to the group stage, as the Wild Card stage will see only two of the six teams in this section advance.

Due to the DPC rankings, teams have been thrown into three categories: Those who have already qualified for the playoffs, those who have qualified for the group stage, and those who have qualified for the Wild Card.

The playoffs will, of course, feature a double-elimination bracket format, with all matches being best-of-three, with the exception of the best-of-five grand finals.
