North American Dota 2 fans are in for a treat as the 2022 PGL Arlington Major brings back the highest level of LAN competition to the region. Keep reading to find out everything we know about the third Major of the 2021-22 season.

Having said that, let’s dive in and check out everything that there is to know about the game‘s upcoming Major.

Dota 2 Arlington Major 2022: Schedule and results

cover art for the DOTA 2 Arlington Major 2022PGL
The PGL Dota 2 Arlington Major 2022 will be the last chance for many teams to collect DPC points and qualify for TI.

The group stage of the Arlington Major is scheduled to be held from August 4th to August 8th. However, the players won’t be graced with a rest day before the playoffs begin. The main event will run from August 9th  until August 14th when a new Dota 2 Major champion will be crowned.

The tables below feature detailed lists of the two groups along with any stand-ins that the teams have announced owing to issues regarding individual visas.

You should also note that Xtreme Gaming from China has withdrawn from the tournament owing to visa troubles. This incident has brought the total number of teams participating down from 18 to 17, resulting in an uneven number of teams across the two groups. For this reason, the schedule of Bo2 matches to be played in the group stage is yet to be finalized by PGL.
