ESL unveiled their tournament plans for 2025

After PGL and BLAST’s announcements, ESL has revealed their plan for Dota 2 in 2025. There has been five tournaments planned.

ESL announced their 2025 tournament plans at the X today. Even though 2024 hasn't met its halfway mark, this famous tournament organizer already has five top-tier events planned for Dota 2 in 2025.

ESL Pro Tour for Dota 2 in 2025

According to ESL's plans, they plan to host five Dota 2 tournaments in 2025. The first one will be in February and the last one will be in December. Similar to 2024, they will host two LAN tournaments, in Europe and Asia, whilst the other three will be online tournaments DreamLeague.

Notably, this news doesn't mention the schedule of Riyadh Masters 2025. Maybe it's because Riyadh Masters is not part of the ESL Pro Tour series. We shall wait for another announcement later.
