A highlight Dota 2 event of the year is no more.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 took the last glimmer of hope for the Dota 2 fans around the world. Even though people expected that it will prevail, the ONE Esports Singapore Major, which was scheduled to take place in June, is now canceled.
This was going to be one of the biggest tournaments in Asia this year, which was going to be played at the Shrine Singapore Outdoor Stadium. However, since it’s just too risky to gather so many people together, ONE Esports decided to cancel this event.
Due to the current global situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the current regulations in Singapore, we want to inform everybody that the last DOTA 2 Major of the year, Singapore Major, will be canceled.

This event was supposed to be the last one for the 2019-2020 DPC. Similar to other Majors, it was going to feature a $1M USD prize pool and 15K DPC points. In addition to that, players were going to witness the best Dota 2 players in the world coming together.
Nevertheless, after the announcement, we won’t see any of it. That said, it is possible that ONE Esports will host some sort of an online event, similar to other big organizers out there. Of course, there is no official information about this yet, but there might be in the near future.
Sadly, this Dota 2 Pro Circuit wasn’t as exciting as the last one. In fact, we only got to see two Majors and Minors so far, which is unprecedented. However, we firmly believe that the best is yet to come, so we just have to wait until the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
