With the latest announcement from ESL, 2025 is now already shaping up to be one of the biggest years for the Dota 2 esports industry. Following the footsteps of BLAST and PGL, who recently entered the Dota 2 competitive scene after the Dota 2 Pro Circuit ended, ESL have now also shared their tournament dates.

The organizer will be hosting five Dota 2 events starting early in 2025 and will run throughout the year. These are ESL One Europe and ESL One Asia which will be LAN events, alongside three Dream League seasons which will be held and played online.

Here is the complete list of tournaments -

DreamLeague S25: February 16 - March 2

ESL One Europe: April

DreamLeague S26: May 12 - 25

DreamLeague S27: November 3 - 9

ESL One Asia: December

Top-tier organizers ready with laid-out plans

PGL have already laid out their plans to host eight Dota 2 tournaments from 2024 to 2026 while BLAST have also dipped their hands into the scene with five upcoming tournaments, out of which four will take place in 2025.

With all these events lined up, the Dota 2 community isn’t going to get any break from entertainment. The announcement for these events was made on X. It seems that the LAN events, ESL One Europe and Asia, don’t seem to have a fixed date just yet. ESL will likely reveal the date for them soon enough.

Another thing to notice is that the events between these three do not coincide with other each other, although, they are awfully close. This may lead to some teams opting not to compete due to burnout from the previous event, but everything remains to be seen.
