The Dota Pro Circuit was a competitive structure for Dota 2 that rewarded teams with points for placements within Valve-sponsored tournaments. The top-ranking teams at the end of the year were invited to that year's The International. The system was established after The International 2017, replacing the previous direct invite system.

For the first three seasons during the period of 2017-2020, DPC consisted of Majors and Minors. From 2021, Minors were replaced by Regional Leagues, with the first division awarding DPC points and Major slots.

On 14th September, 2023, Valve announced that the 2023 season of the Dota Pro Circuit would be the last.[1]
