Lima Major 2023 Group Stage: Schedule, Results, and Other Details
The Lima Major 2023 is the first Dota 2 Major to be held on South American (SA) soil, and it also kicks off interregional play in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023. Lima, Peru, will host the event with the top 18 teams from around the world competing for a share of the $500,000 USD prize pool and 1,900 DPC points. Tundra Esports won The International 11 (TI11) a few months back, and it would be fascinating to watch if they continue to reign supreme or if a new team will kick off the DPC 2023 with a bang, particularly since almost all of the teams have changed rosters recently. Here is the complete information about the Lima Major 2023, including the competing teams, the schedule, the format, and the results.

With the pandemic issues having subsided lately and Peru not being the toughest country for visas, it is likely that most of the teams will be able to come to Lima at full strength. This, coupled with the fact that this is the first Major in South America and the local audience boasts a lot of energy, makes Lima Major 2023 a highly anticipated event.
