What is the ESL Pro Tour?

The ESL Pro Tour is a new pro circuit created by ESL FACEIT which is backed by Saudi Arabia. The pro circuit hosts two online tournaments named DreamLeague and each of these hosts a $1 million dollar prize pool. This is only a slice of the huge $45 million USD prize pool for the entire Gamers8 festival which also hosts other esports titles such as CS:GO.

DreamLeague S19 will run on April 9-23, 2023. Meanwhile, the second online tournament, DreamLeague Season 20, will take place on June 7-25, 2023.

Road to Riyadh Masters - a $15 million grand tour

The DreamLeague events lead up to the grand tournament, Riyadh Masters, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This LAN event hosts a gigantic prize pool of $15 million dollars for Dota 2 which is significantly more than the standard Dota 2 Majors and third-party events.

A total of 20 teams will compete in this tournament. The winner and runner-up of each DreamLeague tournament will receive a direct invite to Riyadh Masters. The rest of the teams will be determined by ESL's own ELO ranking which you can refer to here.
