How do I sign-up for a Dota TV league ticket?

You can sign-up for a Dota TV league ticket by visiting the league sign-up page here. Once you complete the form you will be redirected to your league admin page. On your admin page you will need to upload your league images in order for us to be able to build and complete your ticket. Once you are comfortable with the information you provided for your league you will need to "Publish" your league. When "Publishing" your league, you verify all the information has been entered and is correct. Once your league is "Published" you will be unable to edit the information you provided for your league. You must "Publish" your league at least 7 days prior to the start date of your event. If you fail to publish your league 7 days prior to the start date of your league, your league will be rejected.

How do I create a League Workshop Item/Listing for my league?

Before you submit your league, it requires you to setup a League Workshop Item with the revenue sharing finalized. Even if you aren't bundling an item with your league or your league is Free to Spectate, you still need to create a workshop item for your league and finalize the revenue sharing. To create your workshop listing, please do the following:

  1. In Steam, right-click "Dota 2" and select "View Downloadable Content"
  2. There, select "Dota 2 Workshop Tools DLC". Wait until the Tools are updated.
  3. Right-click Dota 2 again and select "Launch Dota 2 –Tools".
  4. In the Workshop Manager, select "Create new item".
  5. Select "Contract-Only Submission".

This will allow you to create the necessary workshop submissions. Copy this URL and use that when submitting your league for the "League Workshop URL" field. This page also contains the required information for finalizing revenue sharing for your league. If you are bundling an item with your league, please click here for instructions on finalizing revenue sharing for league bundles.


How do I bundle an item or item set with my league ticket?

If you would like to bundle an item or item set with your league ticket, be sure to submit the item(s) when you signup for your league. You can submit your item(s) by clicking on the link next to "League Item". This will allow you to submit up to 5 different item(s) or item set(s) you want to bundle with your league. We allow multiple submissions in-case your primary item is rejected. You should submit the items in the order of your preference (the top item is your first choice to bundle, 2nd item is your second choice, etc.). Additionally, you will need to create two sets of images for your league. One set of images that advertise only the league and another set that advertise the league with the item(s). You must also register your league on the league signup page a minimum of 45 days prior to the start date of your league.

How do I setup revenue sharing correctly when bundling items with my ticket?

When you bundle an item or item set with your ticket the revenue for the bundle gets divided by the total number of items. You can use the tournamet revenue calculator to calculate your the revenue splits. The tournament tool includes two tabs, one for tournaments with prize pool contribution and one for tournaments without prize pool contribution. The following is a guide of how to setup a ticket and/or bundle:

If you have a bundle with a ticket and a courier the total revenue share would be divided in half between the courier and ticket. Below is an example for a tournament bundle with 2 items: the ticket and the courier. In order to set up your bundle you will need to do the following:

  1. Submit each individual item for your bundle to the workshop
  • Ticket (Can be set to hidden)
  • Courier/Item (Please ensure the courier or item is set to public so the Steam Community can vote on it. Hidden items will not be accepted into Dota 2.)
  1.  For each item submission, which includes the ticket and the courier in this example, you'll need to provide a workshop split %. The recommended approach would be for the league organizers and the courier contributor to come to an agreement on how the bundle would be split then apply that same split % to every item in the bundle.

Define Workshop Split % For Each Item:

a. Ticket

a. League Organizer A = 40%

b. League Organizer B = 40%

c. Courier Contributor C = 20%

b. Courier

a. League Organizer A = 40%

b. League Organizer B = 40%

c. Courier Contributor C = 20%


Resulting Revenue Share if the bundle has $100 in revenue:

a. Ticket

a. League Organizer A = $100 * (1 item / 2 items) * 40% split * 25% revenue share = $5.00

b. League Organizer B = $100 * (1 item / 2 items) * 40% split * 25% revenue share = $5.00

c. Courier Contributor C = $100 * (1 items / 2 items) * 20% split * 25% revenue share = $2.50

b. Courier

d. League Organizer A = $100 * (1 item / 2 items) * 40% split * 25% revenue share = $5.00

e. League Organizer B = $100 * (1 item / 2 items) * 40% split * 25% revenue share = $5.00

f.  Courier ContributorC = $100 * (1 item / 2 items) * 20% split * 25% revenue share = $2.50


The above split %'s are examples and may differ from yours. If you have any questions regarding revenue splits please post them under the League Messages portion.
