All upcoming events in 2023/2024

The Kuala Lumpur event is the first event of the second EPT season. However, it takes place at the end of 2023 instead of in 2024. This tournament will occur on December 11 until 18 where twelve teams battle it out in front of a live audience in Malaysia.

  • DreamLeague Season 22

The DreamLeague 22 will see the tournament return to a two-week long format. Following the end of ESL One Kuala Lumpur, the top four teams on the EPT leaderboard will receive a direct invite to DreamLeague 22.

  • ESL One Europe

ESL One will make its way to Europe once again, though the specific country has yet to be announced.

  • DreamLeague Season 23

DreamLeague 23 is the final stop before heading towards the summit of EPT.

  • TBA (Riyadh Masters replacement?)

A TBA tournament which is likely the replacement of Riyadh Masters will take place in the middle of the year. The top eight teams on the EPT leaderboard will be invited to compete in this presumably lucrative tournament.

  • DreamLeague S24
  • ESL One Asia

ESL One will make a final appearance in an undisclosed country in Asia.

Following Valve's decision to abolish the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), the emerging ESL Pro Tour (EPT) has almost completely taken over the calendar for the tier 1 scene.

With continuous premier tournaments throughout 2024, ESL Pro Tour will also see the summit of its season happen in July, which would likely be the Riyadh Masters. This tournament is touted as the "new The International" as it usually hosts insanely lucrative prize money.
