Following our successful coverage of the Kiev Major, we are delighted to continue delivering the highest level Dota 2 action to our audience of 50 million household worldwide. If you’re already familiar with Dota 2, The International 7 needs no introduction. But for those new to Valve’s flagship MOBA, here’s why TI7 is the most hotly anticipated event on the esports calendar.

What is The International?

With the most talented Dota 2 players in the world competing in front of an audience of millions, it’s fair to say The International is esports’ biggest spectacle. The annual tournament ‘s 7th edition will kick off in Seattle on the 7th August – and with a record-breaking prize pool of $22 million, it looks set to be the biggest yet.

In terms of sheer prestige, The International is the esports equivalent of The Super Bowl.

Who’s Competing?

The teams competing are a mixture of direct invites, and qualifiers from the regions The Americas, China, South-East Asia and Europe.

Prior to the main event, a group stage will whittle 18 teams down to 16, and determine the exact seeding for the main bracket. Then, those 16 teams will battle it out in a Double Elimination format at the KeyArena.

Find all the details about the teams taking place, and the format of the tournament, on the official website.
