All teams qualified for Dota 2 The International 10

The Dota Pro Circuit 2021 wrapped up with the conclusion of the WePlay Animajor in June 2021.

But although the top 12 teams in the season qualified for The International 10 then and there, many other teams still had to slog it out in the Regional Qualifiers for a chance to fill the remaining six spots.

Those matches wrapped up on July 10, which means the 18 teams competing in The International 10 have been locked in.
