A new alliance has been announced between top game developer Valve and Movistar Liga Pro Gaming, to produce two new Dota 2 tournaments for the South America region.

The joint efforts respond to a desire to bring new life to the local esports scene, which took a big hit due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic earlier this year. Valve will provide the essential cash to fund the tournaments (estimated in $45,000 total), and will also assist in backing the sixth season of the Liga Pro Gaming competition with 25K additional buckaroos, a big 10,000 raise from last year’s edition.

Valve will fund 2 new Dota 2 Tournaments in South America

The news splashed on Wednesday via the Movistar Liga Pro Gaming’s official site: 

“After twelve consecutive seasons, Liga Pro Gaming has consolidated itself as one of the most attractive esports leagues in Latin America, earning the trust of the most relevant developers in competitive gaming, such as Dota 2-creators Valve Corporation, who have nearly two million registered players in Peru alone.” 

The sanitary crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the Dota 2 professional circuit planned for the early months of 2021. In view of this, Valve has moved to support Movistar Liga Pro Gaming in its efforts to keep the scene alive with attractive new tournaments for South American fans…” 

Live Media Esports Entertainment, the event producers, said they’re deeply committed to the project and hope that this new collaboration will result in more joint developments in the future. The brand-new Dota 2 competitions will take place during the last stretch of 2020.
