Manila to host the 3rd Major
After receiving the honour of hosting the first premier Dota 2 event in the SEA region, ESL One, Manila has been announced as the location of the 3rd Major. With that announcement Valve also released the time frame of The International 6.
The Manila Major will take place in early June, the exact date is yet to be announced. As we can read in the official announcement the tournament “will be the final stop, the final opportunity to prove they belong amongst the best in the world before The International 2016 kicks off beneath the mid-August Seattle sun.” This announcement also means that every Major will be held in the different region of the world, which wasn’t that certain until today.
As we informed you some time ago this won’t be the only huge LAN taking place in the Philippines. Teams and fans will also gather in Manila for ESL One in April. Two such prestigious events taking place in such a short period of time will be an enormous step up for the SEA scene as there still haven’t been a premiere LAN event in that region.
