The International 11 - Tournament Guide

The International (TI) is one of the biggest and most prestigious esports events of the year. In this guide, we will explain what The International involves, which teams are participating, and check out the betting markets for the 2022 edition.

What is The International?

The International, also known as TI, is the biggest and most prestigious event of the competitive Dota 2 professional calendar.

The best Dota 2 teams compete over a multi-week period to determine who will lift the Aegis of Champions and be crowned the champions of TI.

The teams in attendance represent various regions across the globe. Most of them qualify through their regional leagues; however, the last two spots are decided through the Last Chance Qualifiers.

The prize pool for TI varies per year and is mostly crowdfunded through the sale of Dota 2 battle passes. The prize pool for TI10 last year reached a total of more than $40 million.

The International 11 will take place from October 15, 2022, to October 30, 2022.

Where does TI11 take place?

The International 11 will be taking place across two different venues in Singapore. The playoffs will be held at Suntec Singapore and the finals at Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Which teams will be at the The International 11?

Twenty teams will take part in TI11, qualifying through the Dota Pro Circuits, regional playoff tournaments, and the Last Chance Qualifiers. The 20 teams are divided into two groups. Which teams play in which group is still to be decided.
