BLAST enters Dota 2 esports

It is no secret that BLAST is one of, if not the best, tournament organizers for Counter-Strike. The tournament organizer has already expanded into Fortnite and Rocket League, with the FNCS and RLCS, respectively. Now, BLAST has announced that it is entering the Dota 2 esports scene, and we can’t be more excited.

BLAST Dota 2 events to come

With tournament organizers filling the gaps left by the cancellation of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), BLAST’s addition to the fray is fantastic news for Dota 2 esports fans worldwide.

The first Dota 2 tournament will take place in November this year, and there’s a lot more to come in 2025. BLAST has not yet named the tournaments, as this is just the initial announcement.

Dota 2 BLAST Schedule:
  • 26th November – 1st December 2024
  • 4th – 9th February 2025
  • 6th – 11th May 2025
  • 14th – 19th October 2025
  • 25th – 30th November 2025

Andrew Haworth, the VP of Ecosystems at BLAST, talks about the move, stating: 

“We are delighted to be entering Dota 2 and have plans for BLAST to bring a new level of production and excitement that Dota fans haven’t seen before.

It’s a game we love as fans and players, we’ve been following closely as an interested tournament organiser for the last few years. As we’ve grown as a business and expand into further titles, Dota has always been on our wish list. With the recent changes to the Dota ecosystem we feel it’s the perfect opportunity for BLAST to come in, provide the community with the next level of tournaments and become the new home of Dota 2,”

“BLAST prides itself on unparalleled production quality and game changing fan-first moments while bringing together the very best teams and biggest superstars to fight it out for glory on the server. We look forward to bringing this approach to the world of Dota 2 and providing fans with the best esports entertainment on offer.”
