|A subsidiary of ONE Championship, ONE Esports is delighted to announce that Chinese powerhouse PSG.LGD and Major winners Team Secret will be the first two invited teams at the ONE Dota 2 Singapore World Pro Invitational. It is organized together with PGL.
Captained by veteran player Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Team Secret has been a dominant squad since its inception in 2014. They finished first place at the last 2018-19 Dota Pro Circuit season, scoring two Major wins and this strong performance saw them through to the Main Event at The International 2019, where they placed fourth.
Veteran Chinese team PSG.LGD is one of the strongest Dota 2 teams in China, having placed sixth in the last DPC season. With TI9 hosted in their home country, PSG.LGD showed up big time by topping the Group Stage as well as delivering a strong Upper Bracket run, before ending their campaign in third place.
Both squads will join 10 yet-to-be-revealed teams at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore from December 20-22, 2019 to compete for a share of the US$500,000 prize pool. Tournament information and ticketing details will be unveiled at a later date.
The ONE Dota 2 Singapore World Pro Invitational is the first event in ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational series. The second ONE Dota 2 Jakarta World Pro Invitational will take place on April 17-19, 2019 at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE BSD) in Tangerang, Banten, Indonesia.
