LANs and official DPC tournaments are finally back. PGL announced the Singapore Major to be the first offline event for the 2021 DPC. Tournament organiser PGL has announced the Singapore Major, which will take place from 27 March - 4 April. 18 teams will compete for a prize pool of $500,000 and 2,700 DPC points. The Singapore Major will be a LAN event, meaning all contestants will be on-site at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

PGL also announced a broadcast quality with 4k resolution, which they are currently providing in the DPC League as well.

This will be the first Major for 14 months, as the last DPC tournament to run was the DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major in January 2020.

The 18 teams are currently fighting for their ticket to the Major in the regional DPC Leagues. There are six leagues and each of them goes for several weeks in a single round-robin format. The top teams from each region will then make it to Singapore. Depending on their standings, they will either receive a spot in the playoffs, the group stage or in the wild card.

Slot distribution:

  • Europe: 4
  • China: 4
  • Southeast Asia: 3
  • CIS: 3
  • North America: 2
  • South America: 2
