Intel Extreme Masters Katowice Starts March 2

Intel® Extreme Masters (IEM) returns to Katowice, Poland, on March 2-4 to conclude one of the biggest seasons yet in the world’s longest-running global esports tournament. At last year’s IEM Katowice, 173,000 fans packed Spodek Arena, while 46 million tuned in online – making it the most-watched broadcast in ESL’s history. 

This year, an even larger audience will witness the world champions crowned for “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” (“CS:GO”) and “StarCraft II.” In addition, the IEM Expo will feature a women’s “CS:GO” invitational, as well as the VR Challenger League Grand Finals, which concludes a groundbreaking season for the first virtual reality esports league.
