ESL is back in South East Asia with yet another prestigious Dota 2 tournament: the Manila Masters. This time, ESL is collaborating with Mineski Events Team (M.E.T) to organise this tournament and has put up a USD $250,000 prize pool (approximately RM1.1 million).
The Manila Masters will be held from the 26th to 28th of May 2017 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Manila, Philippines – the exact same venue where the Manila Major was held. Similar to the Manila Major, a Secret Shop will be setup to sell exclusive Dota 2 Valve merchandise.
A total of eight teams will be competing at the Manila Masters; although no details on qualifiers have been released as of yet. However, Evil Geniuses are confirmed to be the first team to receive a direct invite to the tournament.
Tickets for the Manila Masters will go on sale on the 24th of February 2016 via SM Tickets. To learn more about The Manila Masters, head on the official website. Alternatively, you can also find the tournament’s official Facebook page here, and Twitter profile here.
