WePlay AniMajor 2021 - the Last Spurt before TI10

WePlay AniMajor is the second major tournament of the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit season, which will be held from June 2nd to June 13th in the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv. This will be the second Dota 2 Major for Kyiv - the first was held at the National Palace of Arts “Ukraine” in 2017. But this time WePlay Esports Arena Kyiv has been chosen as the venue for the event.

As well as the first major of the 2021 Dota Pro Circuit season - ONE Esports Singapore Major 2021, WePlay AniMajor will be closed entirely to spectators since the epidemiological situation in Kyiv does not allow guests to be received at the moment. However, this will not stop us from enjoying the tournament and cheering for our favorite teams.
