An Online tournament with a massive prize pool of $550,000, that will run from July 20th, 2020 (the beginning of the Open Qualifiers) until September 6th and will include multiple competitive regions and divisions.
The English broadcast will be handled by WePlay! Esports, and the RuHub will be in charge of its Russian counterpart. The teams will bring in the best level of competition possible, alongside massive amounts of unique content to create a truly unforgettable experience.
The suspension of the DPC has thrown our competitive scene into a sort of twilight zone populated by an array of small tournaments making it very taxing on players, and hard for fans to engage emotionally.
We decided to work together as a coalition of organizations, driven by our commitment to the fans, our love for this game, and the will to create a more sustainable competitive ecosystem around DotA 2. OMEGA LEAGUE is the first tournament coming from this partnership and everyone involved has poured their hearts into making it worthy of those mythical weeks in August.
We've found fantastic partners in Epic Esports Events and WePlay! Esports, both willing to commit to the higher level of integration that's required to reach the quality fans have come to expect from Major-level tournaments. OMEGA LEAGUE is our first large-scale initiative towards a more sustainable DotA 2 scene. Together we hope to breathe new life into the highest tiers of DotA 2 competition, and we can't wait to show the world what we've been building.
We are excited about the future of the DPC, and we're committed to supporting Valve and the rest of the ecosystem in their efforts to make competitive DotA better for fans, players, and partners alike.

OMEGA League is a unique product. We are extremely thankful to the teams and our partners at WePlay! for working together on the vision of what an Online event can and should be. We hope that this event will set the benchmark in the level of production and provide the fans many hours of premium content.
- Mark Averbukh, representative of Epic Esports Events
We are excited about the opportunity to work on interesting ideas, and very curious about the reaction of the community. Our team and colleagues from Epic Esports Events are giving this event everything that we have. I really hope the audience will enjoy the results. The event takes place on the dates when we are used to seeing The International, and that impacts the level of responsibility we feel about OMEGA LEAGUE.
