It’s got the biggest prize pool in esports history. That’s right, Dota 2’s The International is back for 2022 and it’s bigger than ever.  And we’ve got all the information on this year’s tournament, like when it is, where it is taking place, where you can watch it, previous winners, and more.

The Valve-sponsored event, which sees 18 of the best Dota 2 teams come together to battle it out for the Aegis of Champions in a packed arena, is the biggest occasion on the Dota 2 calendar. The last event, TI 10, saw Team Spirit knock OG off the top spot and become tournament champions.

With The International rounding off the Dota 2 season and millions on the line, there’s a lot of action to get stuck into both on an off the server. But when and where is the next The International, what is the prize pool, and which teams have won it? Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the biggest Dota 2 tournament in history.

When is The International 11?

The International 11 is going to take place in October 2022. The tournament has had a turbulent time lately, with the  2020 event cancelled due to the pandemic and rescheduled for 2021. Then, because of political and visa issues, Valve was forced to re-home the 2021 iteration from Sweden to Romania.

Where is The International 11?

The International 11 will take place in Singapore. This is the first time Valve has hosted the tournament in Southeast Asia.

Last year’s The International 10 took place at the 55,000 capacity Arena Nationala in Bucharest, It was the first time that the tournament had been held in Europe since 2011.

What is The International 11 prize pool?

We don’t have details on the exact amount that The International 11 will be offering players yet, but The International 10 had a record-breaking prize pool of just over $40 million – an amount accrued through sales of the tournament’s Dota 2 battle pass and trumping the previous record set in 2019. We can expect the trend to continue with TI 11.
