The International 2016 was the sixth iteration of Dota 2's flagship annual championship. Hosted by Valve Corporation, it took place at the KeyArena Center in Seattle, Washington. The tournament began on 21 June 2016 with the Open Qualifiers and closed on 13 August 2016 with the Grand Final, where Team icon Wings Gaming.png Wings Gaming became the third Chinese team to be crowned champions after defeating Team icon Digital Chaos.png Digital Chaos. The 2016 edition of The International featured sixteen Dota 2 professional teams from all over the world.

With a prize pool of over US$20 million, The International 2016 is the largest tournament to ever take place in eSports, breaking the record held by its previous iteration, The International 2015, which accumulated over U$18 million. The majority of this sum is collected through several in-game items released by Valve, including The International Compendium 2016, a digital book tied to the event that came with many activities and cosmetic items. 2016 marks the third consecutive year that The International's prize pool outgrows its previous-year record.

The International 2016 became the second not to feature all previous champions, as Team icon Invictus Gaming.png Invictus Gaming was unable to qualify for the event. 2011 and 2014 winners Team icon Natus Vincere.png Natus Vincere and Team icon NewBee.png Newbee were the only ones directly invited; 2013 winners Team icon Alliance.png Alliance secured their spot through the European qualifiers, whereas the defending champions Team icon Evil Geniuses.png Evil Geniuses were forced to play through the open qualifiers due to a last-minute roster change. Valve's roster stability rules also affected other teams, which resulted in only 6 direct invites being issued, the lowest ever for the tournament.
