"We are excited to finally announce Season 1 of ProDota2 League! We know that it has been teased as an announcement and even our trailer video was leaked so everyone got to take a look at what's in store for everyone.

There will be matches in every region that everyone can follow. We are also allowing anyone to cast any matches they want to. The best teams will be playing against each other in the PRO section of the league while up and coming amateur teams can also try and qualify for the remaining PRO league spots.

I hope you are as excited as we all are. To all teams participating, good luck, have fun, and happy gaming. To all spectators, get your popcorn ready!"
